Baseball Betting Odds: Cubs vs. Padres Preview

May 16th, 2024 Betting on MLB Baseball

Baseball betting odds fans will get to see one pretty good team and one pretty bad team when the Chicago Cubs and take on the San Diego Padres on May 24th. It doesn’t take a baseball odds genius to figure out which is the good team and which is the bad team. Likewise the Cubs should come out on top in this baseball odds contest and if they don’t they’ll have no one to blame but themselves.

Baseball odds makers have labeled the Cubs the perennial underachiever in the NL over the past few years and it’s a title the team has earned. Baseball odds makers like this team on paper –and the team has had some success in online sports betting in recent years- but every year in the post season they sputter. This year Lou’s crew is hoping to finally prove the baseball betting odds community wrong and beat the curse of the black cat. It’s been 101 years since the Cubbies won the World Series and if they’re going to do it this year they’ve got to win games like this baseball odds match up in San Diego.

The Padres have floundered thus far in the baseball odds and sit at the back of the standings with a 13-21 record. They could very easily be the worst team in the baseball odds and there’s little reason to think they’ll turn things around this season for sportsbook bettors. The team’s one true talent, starting ace Jake Peavy has seen his ERA balloon to 4.30 and he’s just 2-5 against the baseball betting odds competition.

At the plate, slugger Adrian Gonzalez has been nothing short of spectacular tattooing the baseball odds opposing pitchers. With 13 HRs, 27 RBIs and a .308 BA, his numbers are thoroughly out of place on this wimpy baseball odds team. But the real question will be whether he can maintain these numbers for the course of the season. But in the end, it matters little as there’s no one else in the lineup to help out at the plate.

The Cubs offense has finally come alive after struggling early in the baseball betting odds season. Al Soriano has been on a tear with 11 HRs and 23 RBIs. The team’s batting average is also one of the best among the NL baseball betting odds teams. The starting pitching has also been better than expected and no matter who they put on the mound against the Padres, they should come out victorious in the baseball betting odds.
