Chatwood has Found Success at Chase Field

There weren’t many experts who predicted the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks to be at the top of the National League standings prior to the start of the MLB season, but with the all-star game almost here that’s exactly where we’re at. The NL powerhouses will do battle on the diamond on Saturday, where sportsbooks opened the Rockies as +128 road underdogs with a total of 8.5.

Shark Bites
  • The Rockies are 1-8 in their last 9 games.
  • The UNDER is 5-2-1 in the last 8 meetings.
  • The Diamondbacks are 8-2 in Zack Greinke's last 10 starts.

Tyler Chatwood and Zack Greinke will get the start in this one. Chatwood (6-8, 4.32 ERA) improved to 5-2 with a 3.94 ERA in nine career appearances vs the Diamondbacks on May 7 when he permitted one run and two hits over seven innings. The hurler lasted only 3 1/3 innings at Los Angeles on Sunday when he issued eight walks and was on the hook for all the runs in a 4-0 setback.

Greinke (9-4, 3.08) is a perfect 7-0 at home after topping Philadelphia on Monday. The 33-year-old is 1-1 with a 3.98 ERA in three starts against the Rockies this season and 8-5 with one shutout and a 4.08 ERA in 23 career games vs Colorado.

The Rockies are a perfect 4-0 in Chatwood’s last four on the road vs the D-backs, a trend that will surely appeal to Colorado bettors.
