Padres vs. Diamondbacks Free Pick
Can Zack Greinke help the Diamondbacks end their current losing skid when they host the Padres tonight at 10:10PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Diamondbacks are -200 money line favorites over the Padres, who have odds of +175 to pull off the upset tonight in Arizona. With Cesar Vargas set to face Greinke in the pitching matchup, the over/under is sitting at 8.5 runs.
The Padres have lost four of five on the road and are just 1-4 in their last five games overall. They've also lost four of five against National League West opponents and are 0-7 in their last seven games versus a right-handed starter.
On the other side, the Diamondbacks have been profitable with Greinke on the mound of late, despite struggling as a team overall. They're 6-2 in his last eight starts, are 4-1 in his last five starts versus a team with a losing record, and have won four of his last five outings following a quality start in his last appearance.
OUR PICK: The Diamondbacks have lost four straight games and are just 8-20 in their last 28 home games. But Greinke has pitched much better of late, allowing just four runs on 10 hits in his last two starts. The price on Arizona is too steep on the money line, but the Diamondbacks could breakout tonight and if that happens, bettors can capitalize while receiving plus odds on the runline.
