Arizona Diamondbacks vs Philadelphia Phillies Prediction

The Philadelphia Phillies should be favored at home for obvious reasons, but I'm leaning toward the over. Jordan Montgomery and Taijuan Walker have been a mess this season. Montgomery has a 6.00 ERA, and he hasn't been much better on the road, while Walker has a 5.33 ERA on the season and has been getting tagged this month as well. With two capable lineups and two struggling pitchers, we should see some fireworks. Give me the over in game 1 between the Diamondbacks and Phillies.
