Arizona Diamondbacks vs. San Diego Padres Betting Analysis

The Padres host the Diamondbacks in the first contest of a three-game set at Petco Park on Friday, July 15, 2022.

Despite posting a 17-24 record away from Chase Field, Arizona is in fifth place in the National League West with an overall record of 39-50, which trails the first placed Los Angeles Dodgers by 19.5 games. The Padres enter Friday in second place in the National League West standings with a record of 50-41 overall and 23-20 at home, which positions them 9.5 games back in the division.

Arizona Diamondbacks vs. San Diego Padres Betting Prediction

The Diamondbacks send LHP Madison Bumgarner to hill against San Diego’s 15th ranked scoring offense on Friday night (4.37 RSPG), who’s yielded a solid 3.65 ERA and 1.35 WHIP across 18 starts this season; despite owning a lackluster 5-8 record on the year.

On the other hand, the Padres send RHP Yu Darvish to the mound against Arizona’s 21st ranked scoring offense tonight (4.20 RSPG), who’s also having a solid campaign sitting 7-4 with a 3.38 ERA across 16 starts, which already includes a pair of dominant outings against the D’Backs (13 IP, 1 ER).

I’ll back San Diego here, as Bumgarner is 0-2 with a 4.50 ERA across three starts against the Padres this season (1.75 WHIP); setting the stage for a lopsided pitching matchup against Darvish, who’s 1-0 with a 0.69 ERA across his last two outings against Arizona (0.77 WHIP).

Score Prediction: Padres 7, Diamondbacks 2
Best Bet: Padres -1.5 (+110)
