Detroit at Arizona
Sunday 05/18 04:10 PM Eastern
3 units on Arizona -126 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
Detroit is just 9-14 on the road scoring 3.9 runs per game. They are 3-13 in day games, averaging 3.1 runs per game, batting .233. Randy Johnson hasn't been great by any means, but his team is scoring enough to keep him out of the loss column. Arizona puts up 6.0 runs per game at home and this is a very reasonable price on them today. Nate Robertson is just 3-12 the past two seasons against winning teams while the D-Backs are 19-7 this season vs. winning opponents. Arizona is 21-43 the past two seasons revenging a loss as a home favorite and we like them in that situation here.
