San Diego Padres vs Arizona Diamondbacks Prediction

I’m on the Padres here. I think Dylan Cease is the far more reliable starter and he’s been a lot easier to back in a pitcher-friendly park like Petco. Nelson has had serious issues with the Padres over the course of his career and while he’s pitched better on the road, he really struggled in San Diego earlier this season and I think he struggles here too. Give me the Padres.
