Chris’ Pick

I’m going with Arizona here. The D-Backs continue to bring the value and I just have a feeling that Nola is due to give up a clunker after pitching so well in the postseason. I think I’m just at the point where I think this is more of a coin flip than where the line currently sits, so give me the D-Backs and the plus money here.
