The Padres are small favorites in MLB betting odds for this game. MLB odds trends tell us that the Rockies have won 11 of the last 20 games against the Padres and they are 5-5 in the last 10 at San Diego. The Rockies are expected to start Aaron Cook on Tuesday and that would be bad news for San Diego in terms of MLB odds. Cook is 12-4 with a 2.80 ERA in 21 career games, including 19 starts, against the Padres. MLB betting odds stats tell us that Cook is 5-1 with a 1.69 ERA in seven appearances at Petco Park in his career.
San Diego won two of the last three meetings in MLB odds between the two teams a year ago in September. Two of those games also went over the MLB odds total. The over/under numbers are somewhat mixed on this MLB odds total. The over is 10-9-1 in the last 20 meetings but the under is 4-6 versus the MLB odds total in the last 10 games at San Diego.
Colorado has started the season slowly and some of their MLB odds numbers are troublesome. The Rockies have not gotten good pitching for much of the year and their offense has been sporadic even though it does rank in the Top 10 in the league as MLB odds stats indicate. Playing in Colorado though does tend to inflate their offensive numbers. It seems like they miss Matt Holliday as much as he misses them. The Rockies just don’t have a lot of power now and Holliday has done next to nothing since leaving Colorado for Oakland.
San Diego has come down to earth a bit in MLB betting odds after a great start. Anything around .500 though would be a fantastic year in MLB betting odds for the Padres since nothing was expected of them. They are not getting good enough pitching lately, especially from their ace, Jake Peavy. If he would pick things up then the Padres would be a better wager against MLB odds. Offensively, the Padres have gotten a lot out of Adrian Gonzalez and overall they are about where most people expected them to be in terms of scoring runs.
