Right-hander Zack Godley (2-1, 2.34 ERA, 1.04 WHIP) takes the hill for the Diamondbacks after a strong outing against the Phillies on Saturday, when he allowed one earned run on five hits and three walks with eight strikeouts in 5 2/3 innings to get a no-decision in a 5-1 win. Godley has given up three earned runs or less in all his eight starts and he has a 2.55 ERA in four road starts.

Antonio Senzatela (9-2, 4.10 ERA, 1.21 WHIP) takes the hill for the Rockies after having his worst game of the season on Friday, when he took the win despite giving up five earned runs on six hits (three home runs) and one walk with six strikeouts in six innings of a 10-8 victory against the Giants. Senzatela does have an impressive 7-1 record with a 3.68 ERA in eight home starts. I'm looking at 'Under' 12 at -110 MLB odds because of the extremely high total. Sure, the game is at Coors Field and both teams will up some runs but not so many. 

Free MLB Pick: Under 12 (-110) 
Best Line Offered: at Heritage

Tigers vs. Mariners 

Daniel Norris (4-4, 4.42 ERA, 1.60 WHIP) will start for the Tigers after an impressive outing on Friday, when he allowed three earned runs on eight hits and one walk with eight strikeouts in six innings of a 13-4 win against the Rays. Norris has given up three earned runs or less in his last five starts and he's 2-1 with a 3.86 ERA in seven road starts.    

Yovani Gallardo (3-7, 6.30 ERA, 1.57 WHIP) will make his 15th start of the season for the Mariners. The right-hander struggled against the Rangers last Saturday, giving up five earned runs on six hits (one home run) and one walk with three strikeouts over five innings of a 10-4 loss. Gallardo has surrendered at least a home run in three of his last four starts and he's just 1-3 with a 7.54 ERA in seven home starts. I'm taking the Tigers -108 with one of my MLB picks, Norris is pitching better as of late and I just can't trust Gallardo this season. 

Free MLB Pick: Tigers -108
Best Line Offered: at Pinnacle
