The Arizona Diamondbacks looked like a playoff team for a big part of the season, but they've fallen off a cliff lately. The good news is, they're only 3.0 games back from a wild card spot in the National League, so hope's not gone yet.
They'll play the San Diego Padres today in their series finale with a chance to win the series after beating them 3-0 yesterday.
Let's dive into the odds for today's game and then I'll give you my best bet.
Padres vs. Diamondbacks odds, run line, and total
Padres vs. Diamondbacks prediction and pick
Brandon Pfaadt's ERA of 7.16 may scare you away from betting on the Diamondbacks, but he's pitched better than those numbers indicate. For example, he has a 6.24 FIP (Field Independent Pitching) and a 1.469 WHIP.
Seth Lugo gets the start for the Padres and he's coming off his worst start of the season, giving up eight hits and eight earned runs against the Dodgers. he also lost his only start against the Diamondbacks this season when he give up six hits and two earned runs.
I love the Diamondbacks as home underdogs in this one.
