D-Backs: The Hottest Over Team In MLB

If you are looking for runs and OVERS galore than you should be tuning in to watch the Arizona Diamondbacks. The D-Backs enter their rubber match with the San Diego Padres on Sunday with a streak of eight-straight OVERS. During that eight game span, Arizona and their opponents have scored an average of 12.0 runs per game.  

Shark Bites
  • The Padres have lost five of their past six road games.
  • The OVER is 6-1 in the past seven meetings between the Padres and D-Backs in Arizona.
  • Paul Goldschmidt is 4-for-9 with two doubles and a home run against Drew Pomeranz.

The D-Backs will send Archie Bradley to the mound to take Shelby Miller’s spot in the lineup as Miller deals with a finger sprain. Bradley has made just two starts in the majors this season while allowing nine earned runs and notching more walks than strikeouts.

Drew Pomeranz – who will take to the bump for the Padres – is having an absolutely fantastic season. Pomeranz has a 1.70 ERA – with a phenomenal 0.87 ERA in his past five starts – with opponents hitting just .164. However, the lefties play has been a waste with the Padres giving him two or fewer runs of support in each of his past five outings.
