I took the weekend off to spend some time in the beautiful weather outside. Living in Wisconsin, our winters seemingly last forever and they can often be brutal. Sometimes you just have to appreciate the good weather when you get it. We tried to attend Crusher Fest in South Milwaukee, but it was completely insane with far too many people in too small of a space. A fun day, but I didn’t get any good pics with the statue. Sadly.
A short slate today and the Bet MLB System likes two games. Let’s take a look.

Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Philadelphia Phillies Betting Tips:
The Diamondbacks will send Taylor Clarke to the mound today and he has been sold in his five games this season with a 4.43 ERA/4.31 FIP. He’s not a dominating choice, but I like him a lot here today against this team.
Jared Eickhoff goes for the Phillies today and he has a 4.95 ERA/4.68 FIP on the season with some ugly HR/9 rates. His home starts have actually been worse this season and it’s hard for me not to like the Diamondbacks today. The bullpen is coming off a very rough two-week stretch and the offense has been quiet as well. While the Diamondbacks aren’t the toughest team out there, they look better in the key categories of bullpen FIP, wrC+, and starter.
Chicago Cubs vs. Colorado Rockies Betting Tips:
Yu Darvish has had a rough bounce back from injury this season. He has a 4.88 ERA/5.12 FIP on the season with the walks and homeruns being a big problem for him. You don’t want to have a homerun problem when pitching in Coors Field and I don’t love his chances today.
The Rockies send German Marquez who is perfectly suited for Coors Field. He has a 4.07 ERA/3.40 FIP on the season, but he’s done a great job at inducing a lot of groundballs and keeping the ball in the park. The Rockies bullpen continues to be a strength and I think they can hold on for the win here.
