The Dodgers have been very tough at home this season but they could get a test in this series from a surprising San Diego Padres squad that has done well in baseball betting odds.
Baseball odds information tells us that this is the first game of a four-game series between the two teams. The Dodgers have won 12 of the last 20 games between the two teams as baseball betting odds stats tell us. The Dodgers have been even better at home against the Padres, going 7-3 versus the baseball odds in the last 10 games.
There is no question that the San Diego Padres have been one of the biggest surprises in all of baseball odds so far this season. Many people predicted the Padres to be the worst team in baseball this year but that has not been the case. In fact, the Padres have been very competitive both at home and on the road. The pitching staff is still led by Jake Peavy but Chris Young has looked great and other young pitchers have been solid in baseball odds. Offensively the Padres have been efficient and Chase Headley looks like a future star.
Los Angeles has looked like a clear cut favorite in the National League West this season. The Dodgers have a solid pitching staff and a nice lineup led by Manny Ramirez. The Dodgers can win in different ways in baseball odds and they have an excellent manager in Joe Torre. Los Angeles is starting to get overvalued in baseball odds but if they win it really doesn’t matter. The Dodgers are a very solid team at home and gamblers that look at baseball betting odds really don’t want to go against them at Dodger Stadium.
Baseball odds in regards to the total show that this is a series where the games have gone under when the teams meet at San Diego but over when they meet at Los Angeles. Eight of the last ten games between the two teams at Los Angeles have gone over the baseball betting odds. The last five games in Los Angeles last season all went over the baseball odds total and it wasn’t even close. The totals were 12, 16, 11, 10 and 12. The Dodgers won four of those five games versus the baseball odds.
