Here we go with a new possible nightly article….. Underdog of the night. Its a proven fact that everyone loves betting on underdogs. We all love the possibility of doubling our money by guessing which team will be upset on a nightly basis. We are here to help you make the best possible bet at the lowest risk possible.
Tonight our first underdog we chose will be the Arizona Diamondbacks vs the San Diego Padres. It is very rare for the Diamondbacks to be entering a matchup as an underdog however tonight is one of those rare cases.
Arizona enters the game losers of their last 2, while SanDIego will be entering the game as losers of their last 3, so one of these teams will be able to put an end to their miniature losing streak by the end of the night. San Diego is only 2 wins behind the Diamondbacks for 2nd place in the NL West so both teams will be wanting to win these extra points to insure their placement in the standings.
The D-Backs are sending Luke Weaver to the mound tonight who is 3-2 on the season with a quality 3.16 ERA through 51 innings pitched. Weaver will need to continue painting the low corners of the zone in order to maintain his quality ERA in today’s match up. Chris Paddack the 6’4 right hander is taking the mound for the Padres tonight, he is 3-2 as well this season with one of the lower ERA’s among starters this season at 1.99. Both pitchers have pitched well to this point and I expect a low scoring game in this one so if you were feeling gutsy you could even take the under on this game.
Looking at the trends for this game the D-Backs appear as the favorite, winning 7 of their last 8 game ones of a series and coming in as winners 7 out of their last 10 games on the road. On the other side of the diamond the Padres are 2-9 in their last 11 games vs divisional opponents and 6-14 in their last 20 games on Monday nights.
Remember picking the underdog is always a risk and their is always a higher chance of losing your bet however our favorite underdog for the night is undoubtly the Arizona Diamondbacks at +136 odds. Be sure to bet smart and small, and best of luck on behalf of the unbeatbalebaseball team.
