The Arizona Diamondbacks and San Diego Padres face off on Tuesday in an MLB showdown at Petco Park. On Monday the Padres were able to secure the 5-4 victory. 

Diamondbacks Betting Preview

The Diamondbacks come into this game with a 2-3 record overall but they blew the game in the 9th inning against the Padres on Monday. Corbin Caroll had a strong game finishing with three hits, two runs and one assist. On the mound for the Diamondbacks will be Zac Gallen who sits with an 0-1 record and an ERA of 9.64. In his first start against the Dodgers he went 4.2 innings giving up six hits and five runs. In this game, if the Diamondbacks want any chance, they are going to need Gallen to be good. 

Padres Betting Preview

On the other side of this matchup is the Padres who sit with a 3-2 record overall and ti was a late comeback on Monday that allowed them ot secure the win. Juan Soto had another strong game finishing with one hit, two walks and two runs. The Padres are averaging 3.8 runs while the defense is giving up 4.0 runs per game. On the mound for the Padres will be Yu Darvish who will be making his first start of the season. Last season he went 16-8 and an ERA of 3.10. 

Diamondbacks vs Padres Trends

Padres are 5-0 in Darvishs last 5 starts vs. National League West. Padres are 7-1 in Darvishs last 8 starts during game 2 of a series. Diamondbacks are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series.

Shane’s Free Pick

Yu Darvish is making his first start of the season and he’s going to have a strong start. I really don’t trust this Diamondbacks offense and they are going to struggle. Zac Gallen really struggled in his last start, and he’s going to be lit up against the Padres offense. Look for the Padres to score seven or eight runs at least and that will be the difference here. Back the Padres -1.5. 

Shane’s Pick Padres -1.5
