In Weathers' first season as a pro, he has not jumped off the page as an amazing strikeout pitcher, but he gets the job done. He has a career 4-3 record and 2-2 as a starter. He only has a 17.5% K% and has not performed well against this team in the two matchups earlier in the season. Although, in two games he has not pitched against the Diamondbacks as a traditional starter. In one game he only pitched the first inning and in the other game, he pitched 3 innings to close the game. He normally sees around 70+ pitches a game if he can get something going, they will even stretch him out to the upper 80s. His best strikeout games are obviously when he pitches towards his ceiling innings’ numbers. Unfortunately, Weathers is seeing one of the tougher matchups in the league but that just means we can take advantage of his under. The Diamondbacks don’t really strike out much. Although, on the season the Diamondbacks are a middle-of-the-road team for strikeouts this lineup that they have been rolling out recently is not. On the season the Diamondbacks have a 23% K%, while the projected lineup for tonight has a combined K% of 20%. The main issue is the back of their lineup is atrocious, both giving up upwards of a K% over 30%. As long as the front of the lineup takes care of business, he should have no issue going under tonight and we get plus money on this bet.
