MLB Betting Trends
The Diamondbacks are 4-0 in their last four games versus a left-handed starting pitcher. Arizona is 5-1 in the last six Ray starts.
The Mets are 4-1 in the last five Matz home starts. New York is 3-8 in its last 11 home games.
The Diamondbacks have played well in recent Ray starts and this is a big game for Arizona as it is still in the thick of the NL Wild Card race and needs to snap its recent skid. With the Mets alternating between very good and very poor all season, I'm going to fade them here as it seems things might be trending positive right now and that is when you should trust New York the least.
