Diamondbacks are a Poor Bet Behind Ray

A battle of two of MLB’s weaker teams is scheduled for Thursday, as the underwhelming Arizona Diamondbacks square off with the Milwaukee Brewers in Wisconsin.

Shark Bites
  • The Brewers are 3-1 SU in their last 4 games after a loss.
  • The Diamondbacks are 2-6 O/U in their last 8 games on the road after a win on the road.
  • The Brewers are 10-4 in their last 14 games as a moneyline favorite of -135 or less.

Zach Davies and Robbie Ray are slated to take the hill. Davies (7-4, 3.64 ERA) has gone 7-1 with a 2.84 ERA since May 4, a stretch spanning 14 starts. Ray (5-9, 4.53) has struck out five or more batters in 19 consecutive starts, which is tied for the longest streak in the big leagues.

Despite those numbers, the Diamondbacks simply aren’t getting the job done behind Ray. In their last six outings with Ray on the bump, Arizona is a measly 1-5.
