Baseball betting on Thursday has the San Francisco Giants favored at home against the San Diego Padres.
It is the opener of a four-game series between the two teams before the All-Star break. Gamblers betting on baseball should be aware the home team has dominated this series recently.
Baseball betting trends show that the Giants have won 8 of the last 10 home games against the Padres. Back in April the Giants won both games against the Padres in San Francisco as baseball betting results show. The scores were 1-0 and 8-3.
The baseball betting trends on this series really point to the Giants as the home team. In addition to dominating the Padres in San Francisco, the Giants have been excellent at home this season while the Padres have struggled on the road. In fact, both teams have been good at home but struggled on the road. San Diego has a very weak offense, ranking right near the bottom of the league as baseball betting statistics show. If not for Adrian Gonzalez they would even be worse on offense. The pitching for San Diego hasn’t been that much better so it is surprising that the Padres have won as many games as they have in baseball betting.
The Giants have been a nice surprise in baseball betting this season. Their pitching has been excellent with Tim Lincecum, Matt Cain and Randy Johnson. The Giants have been first or second in runs allowed for much of the season as betting on baseball stats show. Offensively the Giants can struggle but their pitching has been so good that they don’t need to score many runs to win in baseball betting.
Betting on baseball totals at the sports book is not a bad idea in this series. 7 of the last 10 meetings between the two teams in San Francisco have gone under the baseball betting total at the sportsbook. With the Giants pitching staff and the Padres lack of offense, this game could go under as well.
Runs could be at a premium in this baseball betting series between the Padres and Giants.
