Betting Pick: Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Philadelphia Phillies

Betting Pick: Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Philadelphia Phillies

David Peralta has given the D-Backs’ lineup a boost upon returning from the IL, collecting seven hits and six RBI’s in his last five games. The 31-year old right fielder is having a terrific season, registering a .300 average with nine home runs and 36 RBI’s. Peralta feasted on the Phillies last season, going 14 for 27 with three home runs and nine RBI’s. The D-Backs are expecting to have Jake Lamb back in the lineup in late June, and Nick Ahmed is questionable for this one.

The Diamondbacks are scoring an average of 5.30 runs on the season, ranking them fourth in the big leagues. The Arizona pitching staff owns a 4.07 team ERA, good for ninth in the Majors Leagues. The D-Backs feature a strong 21-16 road record entering Tuesday’s action.

Zach Eflin will get the nod for the 13th time of the year, eyeing his second straight victory. Eflin was terrific in his previous start, limiting the Reds to only two runs (one earned) in 6.1 innings in a 4-2 victory. The young right-hander is having a breakout season, registering a stifling 2.88 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP paired with a 6-5 record in 72 innings of action. Eflin has conceded six runs (five earned) in 11.2 career innings against the D-Backs.

The Phillies are scoring an average of 4.91 runs on the year, ranking them 13th in the big leagues. The Philadelphia pitching is looking good, recording a 4.30 team ERA, placing them 13th in the Majors. The Phillies are outstanding at home where they feature a 22-13 record heading into Tuesday’s play.

The art of sports betting is not something that is taught or learned overnight. Like most hobbies, it takes time and effort to pick winning spreads and keep momentum. Many novice sports bettors choose to bet with their hearts instead of their minds. Sports betting is about statistical information, the type of knowledge that only comes through following teams, players and game results.
