San Diego Padres vs Arizona Diamondbacks Prediction

I’m on the Diamondbacks here. I think the starting pitching matchup is a coin flip and I’m not interested in backing the Padres right now with how ice cold the bats have gone in recent games. The Diamondbacks are starting to pick up their play and I think Arizona can keep it going here. I’m simply at a case of I’ll believe that the Padres have turned it around when I see it. Until then, give me the other side. I’ll take Arizona.
