The Brewers are 7-2 in their last 9 Sunday games, 10-4 in Woodruffs last 14 road starts and 20-7 in Woodruffs last 27 starts. The Diamondbacks are 5-2 in their last 7 home games, 6-15 in their last 21 Sunday games and 0-4 in their last 4 during game 4 of a series. The Brewers are 6-1 in the last 7 meetings and the over is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings in Arizona. The over is 8-3-1 in Brewers last 12 overall. The over is 4-1 in Diamondbacks last 5 overall.
Woodruff has allowed three runs in his last 21.1 innings and has allowed three or less earned runs in six of his last seven innings. Young may be a young rookie pitcher, but he's been highly impressive, giving up six hits and two runs in 18.2 innings while striking out 13 with only three walks. The Milwaukee Brewers are the better team playing better baseball, and they probably have the more trustworthy pitcher, but the Diamondbacks and the plus money at home is worth a look given how solid Young has been in a small sample size.
