San Diego Padres @ Arizona Diamondbacks Tips 

San Diego Padres will take on the Arizona Diamondbacks in an MLB regular-season game on Thursday, April 27. This will be their 6th meeting of 2021, with the Padres leading 3-2. This game is the second of two successive matches, with Arizona winning 5-1 on Wednesday. San Diego and Arizona are 4th and 3rd respectively in the National League West Division. 

The Padres have a record of 13-12, while the Diamondbacks are 12-11. San Diego are 3-7 in their last ten games, while Arizona are 8-2, and have won their last three matches. The Padres and the Diamondbacks faced each other in their opening series of this season. San Diego took the first three games by scores of 8-7, 4-2 and 7-0, but Arizona avoided a whitewash by winning the final match 3-1. 

Last season the Padres finished second to the LA Dodgers in the West Division with the second best record in the National League, losing to the Dodgers in the playoffs, who then went on to win the World Series. Because the Padres had caused the Dodgers so many problems last season, they were installed as second favorites to win the National League Pennant in 2021. Arizona finished bottom of the West Division, and are a much improved team this season. 

Based on Wednesday’s result and overall current form, I’m backing Arizona to defeat San Diego again on Thursday in a matchup that will feature around ten runs in total. 

  • Padres 4th in NL West Division
  • Padres 13-12 this season
  • Diamondbacks 3rd in NL West Division
  • Diamondbacks 12-11 this season

Head to Head 

The San Diego Padres and the LA Diamondbacks have played each other 34 times in regular season games over the last three seasons, with the Diamondbacks leading 18-16. During the 2020 season, they finished all-square at 5-5. During the 2019 season they played each other 19 times, 11-8 in the Diamondbacks favor. This season San Diego and Arizona have played each other five times, with the score at 3-2 to the Padres. 

Arizona Diamondbacks Form

The Arizona Diamondbacks are third in the National League West Division, with 12 wins and 11 defeats for a 0.550 win percentage. Last season, Arizona finished bottom of the West Division, but the signs are already there that this season will be an improvement on the last.

After losing their opening series to the San Diego Padres, Arizona lost a three-match series to the Colorado Rockies 1-2, before finally winning their first series, defeating the Cincinnati Reds 2-1, and that would be followed by a 2-2 series draw with the Washington Nationals, a second series win over Cincinnati by 3-0, and most recently a 2-1 series victory over the Atlanta Braves. On Wednesday, Arizona scored a stunning 5-1 win over the Padres, arguably their best win of the season thus far. 

San Diego Padres Form

The San Diego Padres have won 13 matches and lost eleven, and have a win percentage of 0.520, significantly down on the 0.617 they finished the 2020 regular season with. Nevertheless, the Padres are starting to motor, a fact that was made clear when they defeated the Dodgers 3-1 in their second series vs the World Champions, after losing the first 1-2. 

While San Diego have already lost 12 games, they are actually doing slightly better than last season at this stage. In 2020 after 24 games, they were 12-13, compared to 13-12 of 2021. The Padres have the team to potentially dominate the National League this season, but they need to focus less on the Dodgers and more on other teams, or more losses like Wednesday's 5-1 thrashing by Arizona will happen.

After losing the first series of the new season 3-1 to the San Diego Padres, the Arizona Diamondbacks have been something of a revelation, and their recent record of 8-2 in their last 10 games is one of the very best in the MLB right now. San Diego’s last 10 matches are 3-7.

Based off the fact that Arizona are now 7-1 in their last eight games and defeated the Padres on Wednesday 5-1, I’m backing them to defeat the San Diego again on Thursday in a match will feature around 10 runs.
