The odds seem lower than expected when San Diego hosts last place Arizona. This is a meeting of two teams trending in different ways though as the Padres have dropped two straight while the D’Backs have won two in a row.
Arizona was 11-8 vs. San Diego in 2019 which does give them value on Friday. The run differential for those meetings was Diamondbacks +28 so there’s value on the underdogs in this one.
The Diamondbacks have just run a gauntlet of pretty tough teams in facing the Dodgers and Astros over the past 7 games. Each of those meetings was at home, but Arizona’s 3-4 record over that span isn’t that bad.
Arizona also comes into Friday’s meeting with momentum after taking the last two from Houston. The Diamondbacks have put up 19 runs the last two games but have also allowed 11.
It will be Luke Weaver pitching to try and help keep this one under the total of 8.5 which seems very low. Weaver has a 14.73 ERA after two starts in 2020, allowing 12 ER in 7.1 IP.
San Diego Padres
The Padres offense is licking its chops at getting the chance to face a struggling Weaver. The Arizona pitcher had just a 2.51 ERA vs. San Diego in three starts last season though.
This is a new Padres offense in 2020 and Weaver seems to be struggling. San Diego is 2nd in the majors in runs/game at 5.4 and has put up at least 5 runs in 8 of the last 10.
So why is Friday’s total so low at 8.5? Padres starter Zach Davies hasn’t pitched out of the 5th in either of his starts this season and has allowed 6 runs (5 earned) in 10 IP.
