MLB Betting Trends
The Diamondbacks have lost four straight road games and five of their last six division games.
The Rockies have won 16 of their last 21 Game 2’s and 30 of their last 44 games following a win.
Arizona needs a win and I think Greinke will give it to them. He has started three games against Colorado and has two wins with a 2.33 ERA. He has 27 strikeouts and three walks in those starts. Senzatela hasn’t been terribly strong for Colorado and he doesn’t get deep into games. He carries a 6.75 ERA against Arizona this year. The Diamondbacks have to win this game.
