2 units on San Diego -190 (moneyline) (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: WIN
The San Diego Padres continue to win, and have a record comparable to the New York Yankees, but don't face the hype that leads to inflated lines like the Yankees. Clayton Richard would have the second-best ERA in terms of starters if he was on the Yankees. The Arizona Diamondbacks can't win on the road, where they are 19-40. If this were the Yankees, a team with almost the same record, this line would be -250. Add in the fact that the D-Backs start a pitcher with an ERA hovering around 5, and maybe higher. Lopez is 4-12 in his last 16 starts, and this doesn't look like the spot for number five. I'll go with San Diego here.
