Prediction:

The prediction for this matchup is that the total runs will go over 8.5. Here are the reasons:

Second, both teams have demonstrated the capability to score runs. The Diamondbacks have key hitters like Ketel Marte and Christian Walker who can drive in runs, while the Padres have offensive threats in Fernando Tatis Jr. and Jurickson Profar.

Third, recent games for both teams have seen high-scoring outcomes. The Diamondbacks' last five games have included scores such as 8-5, 10-5, and 10-9, indicating a trend towards high run totals.

Lastly, Petco Park, while traditionally a pitcher-friendly ballpark, can still see high run totals given the right matchups and conditions, particularly with two struggling pitchers on the mound.

Pick: Over 8.5 (-105)
