1.5 units on Arizona -130 (moneyline) (risk 1.5 to return 2.65) RESULT: LOSS
Arizona has a winning record at home and a strong offense, fifth in baseball in runs scored and seventh in on-base percentage. The Diamondbacks are 7-2 as a favorite, including a perfect 7-0 as a home favorite. 34-year old Colorado starter Jorge De La Rosa has walked 35 in 64+ innings, a terrible ratio, and the last four years he has a losing road record with a 4.85 ERA. The Rockies are 23-64 on the road, 22-62 as a road underdog. De La Rosa hasn’t enjoyed any success at Chase Field, going 0-7 with a 4.36 ERA in nine career starts. The Diamondbacks go with young, hard thrower Rubby De La Rosa (6-3), who is 2-0 with 1.30 ERA in his last four starts. Arizona is 8-2 against Colorado, 13-3 at home, and the Rockies are 15-37 in the last 52 meetings in Arizona. Play Arizona.
