Preview

The Arizona Diamondbacks and the San Diego Padres will meet again to play a 3-game  series at the Petco Park. The Diamondbacks won their last series against the Twins while the Padres were swept by the Rockies.

Arizona Diamondbacks

The Diamondbacks get to this game with a 32-36 record and have won 3 of their last 4 games. The team is averaging 4.1 runs per game and allowing 4.6 runs. Christian Walker leads with 18 home runs and 35 RBI and Ketel Marte is batting for .269 AVG.

Merrill Kelly leads the team with a 3.46 ERA and 66 strikeouts and 6 wins recorded.

Probable Pitcher:

Zach Davies (2-3, 3.78 ERA) will be on the mound for the Diamondbacks in the 1st game of the series. In a no-decision against the Reds on Tuesday, Davies surrendered six hits and struck out seven batters over seven shutout innings. He has a 5-0 record with an ERA of 2.89 and 32 strikeouts in 8 appearances versus the Padres in his career.

San Diego Padres

The Padres get here with a 41-27 record and have lost their last 3 games. The team is averaging 4.7 runs per game with a .233 at bat while allowing 3.79 runs. Manny Machado is leading the team with 12 home runs and 46 RBI and a batting average of .327.

Joe Musgrove leads the pitching staff with a 1.59 ERA, 81 strikeouts and 8 wins recorded for the Padres.

Probable Pitcher:

Yu Darvish (6-3, 3.35 ERA) will start for the Padres in the 1st game of the series. Darvish struck out seven batters in eight innings of work against the Cubs, allowing one run on five hits. He has a record of 3-3 with an ERA of 4.07 and 88 strikeouts in 11 appearances versus the Diamondbacks in his career.

BETTING TRENDS

The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Arizona's last 9 games on the road.

Arizona are 3-8 SU in their last 11 games when playing on the road against San Diego.

San Diego are 4-2 SU in their last 6 games at home.

San Diego are 8-3 SU in their last 11 games when playing at home against Arizona.

Prediction

The Padres struggled against the Rockies and will be without their All-Star Manny Machado who leads the team in home runs, RBI and batting average. Zach Davies hasn't lost a game against the Padres in his career with a 2.89 ERA. The Dbacks are 20-12 ATS in the road while the Padres are only 9-21 ATS at home. With Darvish on the mound for the Padres the Dbacks could struggle to find good offensive but Zach Davies will keep it close. Take the Dbacks to cover the run line. 

PICK: Diamondbacks +1.5 (-145)
