San Diego Padres vs. Arizona Diamondbacks MLB Prediction:
The Padres have not been playing well as of late. This series against Arizona is a good chance for them to get better.
San Diego is the better team, but they have not played well against the Diamondbacks. I think that will change and they will top Arizona in game 2.
I look for Snell to build off his last start and for the Friars to hit around Gallen.
I like the Padres on the moneyline in this one.
