It’s likely the Dodgers’ NL West to win as Arizona finished 2nd in the division last season – but was 21 games back from LA. San Diego finished 36 games back as they wound up the year in last place.
With a 60-game schedule though, it’s a whole different ballgame. Make no mistake San Diego is 22/1 to win the pennant and Arizona 30/1 but these teams should at least be competitive early in the season.
With 16 teams making the postseason this year there is hope for Arizona. The Diamondbacks finished just 4 games out of the wild card in 2019.
The big story for the D’Backs season opener is the debut of Madison Bumgarner. The former World Series MVP signed a 5-year, $85 million contract in the offseason.
There’s a reason San Diego is still favored even with Bumgarner making his team debut. That’s because the 30-year old has 4-9, 6-7, and 9-9 record in each of the last three seasons.
The Diamondbacks did add some offense with the signings of Starling Marte and Kole Calhoun. They’ll join Ketel Marte (no relation) who hit .329 last season.
San Diego Padres
The Padres finished in last in the West last season but are hoping a bigger year from Manny Machado can improve on that position. Machado hit just .256 in 2019 but did slug 32 home runs.
Machado has some help in the form of budding superstar Fernando Tatis. The shortstop hit 22 HRs while hitting .317 in his rookie season last year.
The Padres are also looking like a good wager Friday with Chris Paddack on the hill. Paddack was 9-7 with a 3.33 ERA in his rookie season a year ago. That includes a 1.08 ERA in three starts vs. Arizona.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Diamondbacks are 1-7 last 8 as an underdog
- Diamondbacks are 2-6 last 8 road games
- Padres are 6-20 last 26 overall
- Diamondbacks are 8-1 last 9 head to head
Free Arizona Diamondbacks vs. San Diego Padres MLB Prediction:
A lot of bettors will be on Bumgarner on Friday and he’ll be amped up in his team debut. So will Paddack though.
