Houston Astros vs Arizona Diamondbacks. MLB’s pick for the game will go to the Arizona Diamondbacks -1.5. The D’backs are in a bad spot, being in the lowest part of the National League, but they are a talented bunch. With a team like that they won’t be down for long, given they get the rhythm going. Gallen is a solid starter for Arizona, as the 25 year old never allowed more than 3 runs since he started in the MLB. Houston is playing bad against NL teams as they only won 1 game in their last 6. Arizona will win this contest to a predicted score of 5-2.
