Baseball Betting – Chicago Cubs at San Diego

May 20th, 2024 Betting on MLB Baseball

Baseball betting has the Chicago Cubs with Ryan Dempster favored on Tuesday at San Diego against the Padres and Cesar Carrillo.Dempster has been up and down for the Cubs this season going 6-6 with a 4.23 ERA. Those that bet on baseball may remember that Carrillo was shelled in his Major League debut last Thursday against Milwaukee, giving up seven runs in 2 ½ innings.

Baseball on the Cubs is always risky but going against the Padres is usually a good idea. San Diego has simply been awful for the most part all season in betting. The one place that the Padres have at least been competitive is at home but backing a rookie pitcher who was terrible in his first start may not be what gamblers who bet on baseball want to do. Taking Dempster is no bargain either though in baseball betting. He gave up six runs and eight hits in seven innings in his last start against Philadelphia. He has given up 17 home runs this season as well which doesn’t give those who bet on baseball a lot of confidence when backing him.

Baseball betting numbers tell us that the Cubs have won four of their last five game 2’s in a series. Chicago is also a pretty good road favorite in baseball at the online sportsbook, winning 36 of their last 53 in that role. They have not played well on Tuesday’s though, losing six of their last seven in baseball. The Cubs have not done well in baseball betting recently when Dempster has been on the mound, losing 8 of his last 10 starts. They are even worse when he is on the road in baseball betting, losing 12 of his last 14 road starts.

The numbers for the Padres in this baseball betting matchup are even worse. They are 10-23 in their last 33 Tuesday games. They are 4-18 in their last 22 games as a home underdog at the online sportsbook.

Those that bet on baseball totals should be aware that the 13 of the last 17 Chicago games have gone under when the Cubs are road favorites. Five of the last seven Dempster starts on the road have gone under the baseball total. 10 of the last 14 San Diego home games have gone under the baseball betting total.
