Houston is still the best team in the American League (on paper) if they want to continue to do so, the Astros must start winning games. Houston has hit a rough patch of the season; losing their last three game set to a non postseason contender in Texas Rangers.
The struggling Astros staff sends Brad Peacock (10-1, 10.07 ERA) to the bump this afternoon. Peacock has not faced the Diamondbacks in 2017, but has been great on the road. Peacock is 6-0 in seven starts (12 outings) with a 2.64 ERA as a visiting pitcher this season. Opposing lineups are hitting .219 against him in road outings.
Arizona has been a solid home team all year, but recently were beaten by the Cubs in a three game home set. Arizona is 38-22 at Chase Field this season.
The Diamondbacks are still in the top two spots in the NL wildcard, but things could heat up if Arizona keeps losing three game sets.
Anthony Banda (1-2, 4.60 ERA) makes his fourth start of the season and first career start against the Astros. In his short time as a starter, Banda has been bad at home. He is 0-2 with a 6.52 ERA in two home starts this year.
Opponents have hit .282 against him in his short time as the starter at Chase Field.

Houston has played bad lately, but I don’t expect them to do so today against the Diamondbacks. Take the Astros on the road. They are 39-20 as the visitor this season.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER the Number
The Astros should crack out the runs against Banda at home, but not enough to cover the over. Take the under 9.5 runs for this matchup.
