Mike North Bombs away...



Two National League bottom feeders square off tonight at Turner Field as the 12-18 Arizona Diamondbacks visit the
7-20 homestanding Atlanta Braves. Both are at the bottom of their respective divisions with the Snakes coming in as
the losers of seven straight. The Braves are just awful in all aspects at 3-11 over their L14 and 1-12 at home overall.
Big money free agent Zack Greinke gets the start for the DBacks while Aaron Blair toes the rubber for the Bravos.
Greinke opened as a -160 favorite but early Atlanta money has the number down to -144 at this writing. The total has
not moved and is holding strong at 7.5 shaded 15 cents to the under.

After a slow start, the Diamondbacks went on a little run to get back to .500 getting solid pitching and timely hitting.
Over the L7 days, the Snake bats have gone into hibernation with the team averaging just 2.1 runs-per-game while
hitting just .223 against white hot Miami and Colorado. Brandon Dury has been Arizona’s best offensive player hitting (.306, 5, 11) while perennial run machine Paul Goldschmidt (.232, 6, 16) has had a hard time getting going.

This was supposed to be a sort of breakout year for the Braves who have assembled lots of young talent that was
supposed to be getting lots of experience as Hotlanta prepares to move into a brand new crib in 2017. Things haven’t
worked out as planned as the team is hitting just .224 through 27 games. The Braves have more wins than home runs
and the Bravos incredibly have just two dingers since April 10th.

After getting hammered in his first two starts in the desert, Greinke finally seems be finding his form and is in fact 1-0  with a 1.93 ERA over his last two road starts. Aaron Blair is a 24 year-old rookie from Las Vegas who have been decent  (0-1, 3.18) in his two big league starts. The teams have split the last 12 game in the series and neither team is hitting  at the moment. The under is 6-1 in Arizona’s L7 and 4-1 in Greinke’s L5. Both Blair starts have gone under so we’ll look  for runs to be at a premium here and take a flyer on the under.
