Al McMordie: BIG AL's 3-GAME MLB PACKAGE (58-29 RUN)!
The D-Backs' RHP starter, Luke Weaver, has been wholly ineffective this season, with a 14.73 ERA over two starts. And he was equally bad in both games, as he gave up six runs in 3 1-3 innings in his first start, and gave up six runs in four innings in his second start. And that first start was against these Padres, so San Diego's hitters should be champing at the bit to face him again tonight. Arizona's an awful 66-99 (minus 26 games on the moneyline) vs. division rivals.
Tim Michael: 10* ULTIMATE OF THE ULTIMATE > > 12-8(+$5K) PICKS L7 DAYS!
San Diego starter Zach Davies is 1-1 after two starts, allowing five earned runs with seven K's spanning ten innings. For his career he's 3-2 with a 4.13 ERA vs. the D-Backs. Davies hasn't been fantastic, but he's been grinding. Luke Weaver on the other hand has been an absolute "gas can" for Arizona, going 0-2 with a ballooned 14.73 ERA so far, allowing 12 runs off 14 hits over just 7 1/3's frames of work. I'm banking on Davies easily going longer than his struggling counterpart and that definitely swings the favor in the under-valued home side.
Brad Feinberg: NL West Mismatch Of The Day
This game all about form for me. And SP Luke Weaver for dbacks is in awful form. He has allowed 14 hits over only 7 innings. Obvioulsy he is not in season form yet. We get Zach Davies on our side, a true pro. Not a dominant starter, but a professional who should hold the dbacks to 3 runs. I made this padres 62 chance of winning which means line should be over 160.
Power Sports: Late Night POWER-STRIKE ~ WON 7 STRAIGHT MLB SIDES!
The Padres were one of the nice early season surprises, but have hit the skids in recent days, dropping two in a row. Still, they are among the highest scoring teams in all of baseball, scoring two more runs than the Dodgers in the same number of games (13). They had yday off to recoup from a tough 7-6 loss to the Dodgers where the game ended with a runner thrown out at the plate. Now they face an Arizona team they’ve already taken three of four from earlier in the year and I believe a turnaround is imminent.
Arizona, though off B2B wins, has struggled in the early going. They are 5-8 and their -23 run differential is the National League’s worst. It’s tough to like them here with Luke Weaver starting as Weaver has a 14.73 ERA and 2.592 WHIP after two outings. He allowed six runs in both, one of which was against the Padres. So San Diego’s early season offensive prowess should definitely continue tonight.
The D’backs are averaging just 2.8 rpg on the road so far plus they played yesterday. Not having the off-day like San Diego is a definite disadvantage coming into this series. Zach Davies will start here for the Padres in what was originally going to be Joey Lucchesi’s spot. But Lucchesi had struggled this year and Davies looks to be an upgrade. Davies has allowed just nine hits in 10 IP so far with one walk.

Key Angle: It's important to remember that Ricky never makes a bet on any game based on just one angle. In order to make the grade, all his premium picks must meet several important criteria. He doesn't share all his secrets within his analysis, instead he chooses to reveal only the angle that he feels is the most significant. Here in this game the recent history of these two teams is particularly significant.
- The Diamondbacks are 1-9 in their last 10 games as a road underdog.
- The Diamondbacks are 0-4 in Weavers last four starts versus a team with a winning record.
- The Padres are 4-0 in their last four during game 1 of a series.
Forum Legends: NL West Showdown
- I like SD to bounce back after a tough series loss to the Dodgers
- Padres are 4-0 in their last 4 in the1st game of a division series.
- Arizona is 1-9 in their last 10 as a road underdog.
