The Diamondbacks should be the pick here if looking at a side, but I'm looking at the over. Zach Davies has a 6.81 ERA and 1.61 WHIP, while Carlos Rodon has a 5.90 ERA and 1.36 WHIP. Davies has a 8.10 ERA and .287 allowed batting average on the road. Rodon has allowed 13 runs in his last 20.1 innings. Just two pitchers who aren't scaring anybody. I expect some fireworks in this contest. Give me the over.
