Greinke Has Been Nearly Unbeatable in the Desert

However you might feel about R.A. Dickey and the Braves, they’re in much better form than the Diamondbacks right now and the trends lean heavily in the direction of the tomahawk chop. Does that mean you should put your hard-earned money on Atlanta as the big road underdog tonight? Let’s see.

SHARK BITES
  • The Braves are 7-2 SU in their last 9 games when opening a series.
  • The D-backs are 7-0 SU in their last 7 games at home with Zack Greinke as the starting pitcher.
  • The Braves are 4-0 SU in their last 4 games against the Diamondbacks.

Giving up more than one run for the first time in five games in his last start, R.A. Dickey (6-6, 4.14 ERA) is still getting it done at the age of 42. His team has won five of the knuckler’s last seven starts and the D-backs are in a serious rut, winning just three of their nine games since the break.

That said, Zack Greinke has been a rut-buster all season long. The 33-year-old is finally comfortable in the desert and he’s been nearly perfect in Arizona in 2017, going 9-0 with a 2.41 ERA in his 11 starts at Chase Field – a notorious hitter’s paradise.

If Dickey comes in with his best stuff, this evening’s contest could be a good impersonation of a pitchers’ duel and the opening total of 9 seems a bit steep.
