The Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks will square off in Phoenix tonight. Drew Pomeranz and Wade Miley are the respective starters. Check the updated MLB odds at Bovada sportsbook.
The Rockies enter having won four of their last ten. Pomeranz takes the mound and he has been on a tear as of late, winning his last five decisions and going at least seven innings in each of them. His last start against these Brewers he surrendered seven hits and three runs, but struck out 11 in 7 2/3 innings.. In his last 39 innings, Pomeranz has given up a total of 14 runs. He is going for another victory tonight on the road against a team that tends to struggle scoring runs at home. The Rockies are 16-23 on the road.
The Diamondbacks are 2.5 games up in first place in the NL West and hope Wade Miley can help them maintain position. Miley enters with a 2.79 ERA and is 4-3 with a 1.07 WHIP this season. He was outstanding in his last star against Arizona, giving up just two hits and one earned run while striking out three in his complete game victory. Over his last four starts he has surrendered just five earned runs. Arizona is 21-16 at home this season and have won two in a row. They are 44-41 this season.
I will side with the over in this ball game as neither of these pitchers are any special and both these teams can hit the ball. Side with the home team tonight but first read about online sportsbook reviews.
