The Brewers and Diamondbacks will meet in the desert for the rubber match of this three-game set between these National League rivals. Let's peruse the MLB odds and get on the right side of this one.

Battle of the Gunslingers

When you think of premier Major League pitchers, the names Chase Anderson and Robbie Ray won't immediately leap to mind. But these two gunslingers have been dazzling over their last three starts and the winner of this game could very well be decided by which pitcher goes deepest. With the series finale looming we expect both starters to be razor sharp for this afternoon's desert showdown.

Chase Anderson (5-1, 2.94 ERA, 1.22 WHIP) has been a stone cold killer for the Brewers over his last three outings, blanking the Diamondbacks, Mets, and Giants in 21 plus innings of high heat coupled with a baffling change-up. The former Diamondback has increased the velocity of his fastball and has expanded his pitching arsenal to deliver three sensational outings in which he registered victories in each and every one. In addition, he has been on point when facing his old employer with a 2-0 record and a 2.00 ERA in his three appearances against Arizona.

The Diamondbacks will have their own burgeoning superstar chucking for them with Robbie Ray (6-3, 2.85 ERA, 1.07 WHIP) on the hill this afternoon. Ray has been mowing down lineups with ease as he has recorded three consecutive wins and pitched 22 plus innings of one run baseball. The Diamondbacks have wins over the Brewers, Pirates, and Padres in Ray's last three performances and hope they get another one here.


Brewers Big Bang for Your Buck

There is not much separating these two teams nor their starting pitchers. Both teams own winning records and will send two white hot pitchers to the mound. But if you peruse the MLB odds you will find that the home team D-backs are sizeable favorites over the Brewers this afternoon. I find that lopsided line quite odd as Milwaukee's Chase Anderson has not only been at the peak of his pitching powers recently but has had tremendous success against his old club in his previous outings against the Snakes.

Although I respect what Robbie Ray has done recently for the Diamondbacks, I can't overlook the big return we are getting on the road dog here. Let's watch Chase Anderson continue his torrid streak and cash a ticket on the Brewers in our MLB picks for Sunday afternoon.
