Bet on baseball odds heavily favor the Phillies in this matchup as they are expected to have Cole Hamels on the mound.
Baseball betting scheduling information also favors the Phillies. The Padres now have to play this makeup game which turns their 7-game road trip into an 8-game trip. The Phillies are already at home and open up a baseball betting series on Friday against the Cardinals.
The Padres have been awful on the road this season but they have one of their few bright spots on the mound on Thursday. Kevin Correira is 6-7 with a 4.34 ERA as baseball betting statistics show, but he leads the team in quality starts with 11. He allowed just one run on three hits last time out in a 3-1 win over Colorado as online betting numbers tell us. He has been the stopper this season for the Padres. All six of his wins have come after San Diego losses. Baseball betting stats reflect that he has allowed three or fewer runs in 15 of his last 19 starts. He did take the loss last month against the Phillies though, losing 5-3 as bet on baseball results show.
The Phillies are expected to send Cole Hamels on Thursday. Hamels has not been nearly as strong as he was last year in baseball betting. He has been solid in his career against the Padres though with a 2-1 record and a 3.25 ERA as bet on baseball numbers indicate. Baseball betting stats show that on the season Hamels is just 5-5 with a 4.72 ERA.
The Padres have actually done very well recently against the Phillies in Philadelphia. They have won 6 of their last 10 games at Philadelphia as baseball betting numbers show. Taking San Diego on the road is always risky though as they have one of the worst baseball betting road records in the league. The Padres simply have no offense other than Adrian Gonzalez and their pitching is weak.
The Phillies have been great in the past few weeks and they are even winning at home now in baseball betting. Philadelphia has a powerful offense and their pitching continues to improve as bet on baseball stats indicate. They are a deserving home favorite at the online sportsbook in this baseball betting matchup.
