I’m not sure if the D-Backs are gonna stretch Webb out here in his last start of the season. And although for the most part he has had another great year, a lot of that was front-loaded as the D-Backs were 9-0 in his first nine starts, but just 14-10 since. When they needed wins the D-Backs went 12-20 down the stretch and blew their lead in the West to the Dodgers, so why would the results here have any greater expectation at just about two to one odds? The Rockies are 7-4 in their last 11, and not just running out the slate. Glendon Rusch was misused coming out of the pen where he had a 7+ ERA. He is much more comfortable in a starting role as he has allowed three runs or less in six of his eight starts. This line looks like a must-win line for Arizona, and they missed all their must-win games, so I'll play the value side here and ride the Rockies.
