Baseball Betting – San Francisco at San Diego

Baseball betting on Sunday is likely to feature one of the best pitchers in all of baseball as Tim Lincecum is scheduled to pitch for San Francisco.

The Giants and Padres will be playing the finale of their three-game weekend series. If Lincecum goes as expected then the Giants would be favored in online baseball betting odds.

Baseball betting odds are likely to have the Padres as underdogs a lot in 2009, even at home. The Padres lost 99 games a year ago and most baseball betting experts believe they will top that total this year. The Padres are expected to send Chris Young to the mound in this online baseball betting matchup and if they are to have any chance to be improved this season they must get a big year out of Young. Baseball betting statistics show that the Padres are just 3-5 in Young’s last eight starts against the Giants.

The Giants have had a lot of success recently at San Diego in online baseball betting, winning almost 70% of the time in the past year or so. It makes some sense considering the Padres have really struggled in the past year against the baseball odds. San Francisco has an improved starting rotation this year as baseball betting stats tells us and they feature the Cy Young award winning Lincecum. Adding Edgar Renteria in the offseason could prove important as well in baseball betting. The Giants are definitely a team to watch and follow in baseball betting this season.

Baseball betting numbers tell us that the Padres lost a lot last year and they really didn’t do anything in the offseason to improve their team. In fact, they are going backwards in some ways, especially if they trade their star pitcher Jake Peavy. San Diego still has Adrian Gonzalez in the middle of their lineup but overall they don’t have any other players who can impact the baseball betting line.

The Giants will be counting on their pitching to win games versus the baseball odds since they still have a very young lineup. Baseball betting information shows that Aaron Rowand and Bengie Molina are the main two offensive threats along with Renteria.
