Money Line: -149 Arizona
This is an 8* play on the Arizona D'Backs.
It's a log jam at the top of the NL West, with only half a game separating Arizona, Colorado and LA. The D'Backs host the Giants on Thursday night, and I like Arizona with Zack Greinke on the mound.
Greinke (12-5, 2.96 ERA) allowed one run on six hits over seven innings in a 6-2 win at San Diego his last time out. He's 5-1 with a 2.39 ERA in 11 home starts this season, and he's 7-2 with a 2.54 ERA in his last 13 starts against the Giants.
San Francisco will hand the ball to Madison Bumgarner, who has been having a rough year. Bumgarner (3-4, 3.06 ERA) allowed three runs on six hits over eight innings in a home loss to Milwaukee his last time out. He's 3-7 with a 2.44 ERA in his last 13 starts against Arizona.
D'Backs slugger Paul Goldschmidt owns Bumgarner, batting .344 with three home runs lifetime against the Giants ace.
