The Arizona Diamondbacks will look to pull off quite a big upset this Friday, as they take on the San Diego Padres at Petco Park in San Diego California.
Arizona has now gone 1-6 in their last 7 and look to be close to gaining the title of 2021’s worst team and to get an idea of just how bad this season has been, you just have to go back to the first month or so of the season where they somehow managed to be over .500.
It took a historically bad run for them to get to this point, as they have one of the worst pitching staffs in the entire league and their offense has been really bad after that hot start to the season. Those batting stats are even worse then they look too, as they get to play all their home games in Arizona, which is the ballpark which ranks second overall in terms of runs scored.
The projected starter for the Diamondbacks here is Caleb Smith who has without a doubt been one of the better pitchers Arizona has this year coming into this game with a 3-8 record and a 5.04 ERA.
San Diego Padres
The San Diego Padres look primed to make a World Series run, as they have a fantastic and exciting roster and my main concern about this team does not have so much to do with the Padres, but more with just how good the Dodgers have become and how tough they will be to get past.
The one knock you can have on this team is probably the starting rotation, as they have only managed 29 quality starts, but at the end of the day their overall pitching stats are still great and Ryan Weathers certainly should be able to pick up another quality start here on Friday.
Ryan Weathers is 4-3 with a 3.65 ERA and I only expect those numbers to get better at the conclusion of this game, as he gets an absolute dream spot pitching this game at home and of course going up against the D=Backs bats.

Free Arizona Diamondbacks vs. San Diego Padres MLB Prediction:
The line here really does not make a lot of sense to me, as I feel we should have to lay way more juice in this spot, and given the disparity between these two batting lineups and the edge the Padres have on the mound they really should be able to cover this 1.5 run spread.
