Arizona Diamondbacks vs San Diego Padres Prediction

You can make a case that the Padres should be favored because they're at home and Michael King has been sharper than Brandon Pfaadt this season. However, the Arizona Diamondbacks are having the better week and getting them at plus money seems to be the move. The San Diego Padres have lost 5straight games, and a lineup loaded with all stars can't string together runs. The Padres have been underachievers time and time again, and I'm just not excited to back them in the favorite role at all. Give me the Diamondbacks.
