The Arizona Diamondbacks are within reach of the NL West lead, sitting just 1.5 games back from the Los Angeles Dodgers.
A win tonight will not only bring them closer, but it’ll also guarantee a series victory against the Colorado Rockies. The Diamondbacks won the first two games in the series by a combined score of 12-6. Game 4 will take place on Thursday afternoon.
Let’s dive into the odds for tonight’s game and then I’ll give you my best bet.
Rockies vs. Diamondbacks odds, run line, and total
Rockies vs. Diamondbacks prediction and pick
There is no way I can justify or try to argue in favor of a bet on the Rockies tonight.
Colorado will be rolling with Dinelson Lamet, who has a 12.66 ERA on the season, allowing 15 earned runs in 10.1 innings pitched. Tonight. he’ll be making his first start of the season after being used as a reliever through the first two months of the 2023 campaign.
It makes matters worse for him that he’ll face to face an Arizona Diamondbacks team that’s fifth in OPS against right-handed pitchers in the month of May. Meanwhile, the Rockies have an OPS of just .726 when playing away from Coors Field over the same time frame.
Let’s not overthink tonight’s game. It’s the Diamondbacks or nothing for me.
