Arizona Diamondbacks vs Kansas City Royals Prediction

Admittedly I had to do some research to find out more about Heasley but I think he should be solid. He has now started two games and has only allowed one run and three runs in his two contests, both would cash for us today. Those two games were against the Rangers and WhiteSox who both hit righties better than who he is playing tonight in Arizona. The Diamondbacks only bat .217 against righties so this number feels very high. Not to mention, this is only for earned runs so we could get bailed out by defensive errors bringing in unearned runs. This bet feels really nice.

Heasley will more than likely go between 80-90 pitches if he pitches well and should have a short leash if he doesn’t. He could allow three runs in three innings and get pulled or go out there and look like a star, this bet has the potential to hit in a multitude of ways. Arizona has scored 30 runs in their last four games and I think the streak ends sooner rather than later. They just don’t have the talent for that to be sustainable and I think they come back to reality today.

I usually pick on pitchers making their third ever start but we’re gonna be supporting the rook today. He’s 25 years old and so am I so I feel like we could be friends, friends are supposed to have each other's backs so he’ll have mine tonight. I’m not nervous about him being on the road because the better of his two starts came on the road. The man walked into Texas and threw 80 pitches only allowing one run in his first-ever start, ice in his veins. I just find this number too high and think Arizona is due a stinker of a game, the stars are aligning on this one. Let's roll!
