Arizona Diamondbacks DFS SPIN
Christian Walker went 3-3, with a pair of walks and home runs in the game three win over the Rockies on Thursday. Walker enjoyed a great week at the plate in division action against San Diego and Colorado, collecting a hit in all six games. Walker has produced multiple runs in four of those contests, and he homered in all three games at Coors. Walker is up to a season-high .275 batting average, with team-leads in home runs (28) and RBI (82).
San Diego Padres DFS SPIN
Fernando Tatis Jr. went 3-4, with a RBI single in the game three win over the Orioles. Tatis has turned things around at the plate since returning to the top of the Pads lineup, as he brings a six-game hit streak into this series. Tatis recorded three hits in the final two matchups with Baltimore, while also collecting a trio of hits in their game one victory over Arizona last weekend. Tatis is third on the team in batting (.270), home runs (19) and RBI (63).

Diamondbacks vs. Padres MLB BETTING PREDICTION
San Diego and Arizona have both struggled this month, but they both showed up this week, and I think their offensive Carrie’s into the weekend. Rich Hill starting doesn’t necessarily equate to a loss, but it does mean runs may be scored, and it’s likely the Diamondbacks find production at the plate. Meanwhile, the Padres will be looking to get back at Zac Gallen after being silenced by him last weekend, and we’ve got the ingredients to target the total here. Take the Over for this divisional battle.
