Arizona Diamondbacks at San Diego Padres Prediction

Heading into Sunday’s matchup between Arizona and San Diego, the Padres are the favorite on the moneyline. Even though Mike Clevinger is coming off a couple of tough outings, he will be facing an Arizona offense that has not scored more than 3 runs in over a week of games. I like San Diego on the moneyline.
