MLB Betting – Houston at San Diego

April 16th, 2024 Betting on MLB Baseball

MLB betting on Tuesday includes the second game of a four-game series between the Houston Astros and San Diego Padres. It is the second game of a 7-game road trip for the Astros and the second game of a 7-game homestand for the Padres. The Padres have been solid at home this season so gamblers who make a MLB bet might be leaning to San Diego in this game.

MLB betting trends really don’t favor either team in this series. The teams have split their last 10 meetings in San Diego as sports betting numbers show. Brian Moehler is expected to get the start for the Astros in this game. MLB bet numbers tell us that he is 4-4 on the season with a 6.05 ERA. He gave up four runs in five innings in his last start against Kansas City but only one of those runs was earned. He defeated the Padres back in May, going 7 innings and allowing only one run as MLB wagering stats show.

The Padres could go any number of ways with their pitching rotation on Tuesday. Wade LeBlanc would be in line for the start but he was awful last Thursday against Seattle. He has allowed seven earned runs in 4 1/3 innings this season as MLB betting statistics show.

Baseball betting trends do favor this game to go under the total. Nine of the last ten meetings between the two teams at San Diego have gone under the baseball betting number.

Houston has actually played just as well on the road as they have at home this season in MLB betting. That is more of an indictment against their home record though than their road success in online sports betting. Still, the Astros are right around the .500 mark on the road in MLB betting and that is not a bad thing. The Astros have had trouble all season scoring runs and that could be an issue in this MLB betting series against the Padres. Houston’s pitching this season has been average, ranking right in the middle of the league as MLB bet numbers indicate.

San Diego has been a far better team at home this season than on the road. The Padres have been solid at Petco Park in MLB betting but abysmal on the road. Overall, San Diego’s numbers are not very good. Other than Adrian Gonzalez they have very little offense and the pitching has been weak. Taking the Padres at anytime has been an iffy proposition in MLB betting.
