Baseball Betting Tip of the Day Diamondbacks at Padres - 07-28-08

Jul 28, 2008 7:20 PM

by GT Staff | Arizona Diamondbacks at San Diego Padres (-110, 8u -115): Greg Maddux (3-8) has been solid as ever on the bump this season but his Padre teammates have been less than impressive in support of the veteran right-hander.

Maddux has now gone 13 straights starts without a victory with San Diego and has been mentioned lately in trade rumors with the Dodgers. Micah Owings (6-8, 5.40 ERA) returns to the Diamondbacks rotation here and hasnít exactly been unhittable but with his teamís domination in the NL West (24-12 against the division into Sunday) and the Padres recent slump (3-7 L10), letís back the better team here that knows itís in a pennant race. Arizona is 5-4 vs. the Pads so far in 2008. DIAMONDBACKS.
