Pick #10: Arizona Diamondbacks ML (-142 DraftKings)

**Betting Preview: Detroit Tigers vs. Arizona Diamondbacks - MLB Showdown**

In the upcoming MLB matchup between the Detroit Tigers and the Arizona Diamondbacks on Saturday, the smart money is on the Diamondbacks to take the win on the moneyline. Here’s why backing Arizona makes sense.

The Diamondbacks are coming off a tough loss where they were dominated early, but expect a strong rebound in today’s game with their ace on the mound. Both the Diamondbacks and Tigers have been hovering around .500 for quite some time now, often struggling to put together consistent winning streaks. This pattern suggests a bounce-back performance for Arizona, especially at home, setting up a potential rubber game in the series.

Jack Flaherty, who will be taking the mound for the Tigers, has a mixed history against the Diamondbacks. Last season, Flaherty faced Arizona three times — twice with the St. Louis Cardinals and once with the Baltimore Orioles. His performances were middling at best, allowing four runs in six innings in the first game, three runs in five innings in the second, and four runs in 4.2 innings in the third. This history suggests that the Diamondbacks' lineup can get to him, particularly as many of their hitters have solid numbers against him. Notably, Joc Pederson stands out with a .357 average (5-for-14) and two home runs against Flaherty.

On the other hand, the Diamondbacks’ ace Zac Gallen has been exceptional at home this season. In his three home starts, Gallen has allowed just one run over 17 innings, a continuation of his dominant home form from last year. His ability to pitch deep into games and shut down opposing lineups will be crucial for the Diamondbacks as they look to secure the win.

Backing up Gallen is an Arizona offense that, despite the previous game's struggles, has the capability to bounce back effectively. With hitters like Pederson leading the charge and their historical success against Flaherty, the Diamondbacks are well-positioned to provide the necessary run support.

In conclusion, the combination of Zac Gallen's dominant home performances, Jack Flaherty's shaky history against Arizona, and the Diamondbacks' offensive potential makes Arizona the smart pick on the moneyline. Expect the Diamondbacks to leverage their ace’s stellar form and home advantage to notch a crucial win against the Detroit Tigers on Saturday.
