Struggling Diamondbacks Maintain NL West Lead Ahead Of Slumping Division Rivals

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 6/27/2013 7:18:49 PM

The Arizona Diamondbacks managed to maintain a three-game lead atop the National League West even after losing three-straight games earlier in the week, thanks to the rest of the division contenders struggling as well. The Colorado Rockies and San Diego Padres dropped consecutive games and have played sub-.500 baseball over their past 10 games, while the San Francisco Giants have lost four-straight and seven of 10. Whether or not the Diamondbacks are able to get back on track this online betting weekend in Atlanta should be interesting considering how good the Braves have been at home. Then again, it won’t matter much unless the Padres, Giants, and Rockies figure things out.

San Diego Padres @ Miami Marlins
Friday, 7:10 PM ET

No team has been worse this online sports betting season than the Marlins, so there will be a sense of urgency for the Padres as they try and turn things around. That said, San Diego is still eight games above .500 as the visiting team on the year, and they don’t exactly have the best match up entering Friday’s game with Edinson Volquez set to get the start opposite Ricky Nolasco for Miami. Volquez has led the Padres to wins in two of his last three games but his ERA is still up at 5.67 and he has become prone to sporadic performances at times. Nolasco is just 4-7 on the season, but he has looked good in back-to-back starts and his 3.68 ERA makes him worth taking a shot on in this match up.

MLB Betting Pick: Miami Marlins + 125

Arizona Diamondbacks @ Atlanta Braves
Friday, 7:30 PM ET

The Diamondbacks could be in for a tough start to their series with Atlanta with 23-year old Randall Delgado set to make his fourth start of the season. Delgado is 0-1 with a 4.50 ERA, and while he has gone five or more innings in each of his last two starts it isn’t as though online sportsbook players will feel thrilled about the prospect of going all in with him. The Braves have been excellent at home this season, and Julio Teheran has brought his ERA down from 4.84 to 3.32 over the past month of action.

MLB Betting Pick: Atlanta Braves - 150

San Francisco Giants @ Colorado Rockies
Friday, 8:40 PM ET

The only thing preventing potentially all four of the top teams in the NL West from losing on Friday night is the fact that the Giants and Rockies will play one another, so at least one team will have to win. San Francisco has been awful on the road but might like this match up with Barry Zito getting the call opposite Jhoulys Chacin. Zito is just 4-5 with a 4.40 ERA, but he still has incredible stuff and can be a force when he puts it all together. Chacin meanwhile has been lights out recently with three-straight wins to improve to 6-3 with a 3.92 ERA, but he has benefited from playing the Washington Nationals twice as well as the Philadelphia Phillies, and could be overdue for a loss. The Giants need to start winning again sooner or later, and they are an attractive option here as an underdog on the road.

MLB Betting Pick: San Francisco Giants + 140
