The Texas Rangers are the current favorite for the game in Arizona at -155 on DraftKings.

Lets look at the tail of the tapes, shall we? The Rangers are turning to Jordan Montgomery. Since being traded for he has been a tough cookie to score runs off of. In his 18 innings for the Rangers Montgomery has allowed just five runs.

Across the way in the other dugout, Cecconi has been limiting runs himself. Slade has allowed just four runs in his last three appearances. Which all in all is why we love the under on the first inning of 0.5 runs at plus money (+100).

The Rangers just recently were swept by the Brewers at home. Texas only scored more than one run in one of those three games. They are also just 2-5 over their last seven games. The Diamondbacks on the other hand have been red hot, recently taking a series against the Padres. Which is why we think the Diamondbacks at +130 is worth a sprinkle.

Looking over at the hitters props is a little tricky but we’ll do our best. Christian Walker at +450 to hit a bomb just feels right. Walker leads the Diamondbacks in homers and is never one to shy from competition, being a bright light in Arizona’s offense.

Tommy Pham is another guy who has been spectacular recently. Pham has crossed the plate for a run six times in the last five games. At +110 runs scored, we love it.

Slade Cecconi hasn’t allowed more than four hits in his last three starts, which is why his under 5.5 hits at -165, is what we call a lock. Put the Mortgage on it. That was a joke. Don’t do that.
