Godley was solid in his last outing as he put in a quality start but got the no-decision in a 3-2 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies.
He went 7.1 innings giving up five hits and two earned runs while he struck out seven and walked one.
In 130.1 innings of work this season, Godley owns a solid 9.46 K/9, a slight high 4.14 BB/9, a solid 0.83 HR/9, and a low 70.3% LOB%.
The end-result is a moderate 4.35 ERA but a solid 3.84 FIP.
Arizona has played mediocre baseball in the past week winning three of their six contests.
During that span their lineup is slashing .261/.320/.427 to go with 21 extra-base hits and 21 RBI.
Castillo was decent in his last outing but walked away with his ninth loss of the season in a 1-2 loss to the Washington Nationals.
He went 5.2 innings giving up six hits, two earned runs, one home run while he struck out three and walked two.
In 121.0 innings of work this season, Castillo owns a decent strikeout (8.40 K/9) to walk rate (2.90 BB/9), while he has struggled containing the long ball (1.49 HR/9) and stranding base runners (69.9% LOB%).
The end-result is a high 4.91 ERA and a lower but still high 4.48 FIP.
Cincinnati has played sub-par baseball in the past week only winning three of their seven contests.
During that span their lineup is slashing .250/.294/.352 to go with 12 extra-base hits and 22 RBI.

4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER 9 Total Runs
Godley does own a 5.46 ERA, but he has gotten himself strolling along posting solid FIPs in his last five outings, even on the road.
Castillo is coming off of his best month of baseball and gets to face an Arizona lineup that doesn’t hit as well on the road and during day games.
It is hard to choose between either team, but I expect the total to remain under the threshold.
