MLB Betting Trends
The Braves are 20-8 in their last 28 Sunday games. Atlanta is 7-3 in its last 10 road games.
The under is 11-3 in the last 14 Diamondbacks games. Arizona is 2-6 in its last eight games overall.
Ray has been phenomenal in his last couple starts as he is finally harnessing his plus stuff again. That bodes well for Arizona today as a team that needs a split in this series to stay in the thick of things in the competitive NL West race. Toussaint is full of promise and was good for a while in his second MLB start against Boston, but he's still learning and probably won't get a lot of run support today. Take the home team in this spot.
