MLB betting on Saturday night includes a matchup in San Diego as the Padres host the Pittsburgh Pirates.
It is the middle game of a three-game set between the two teams and a great way to end a Saturday night of MLB betting action. Let’s look at some of the numbers to consider as you bet on MLB odds between the Pirates and Padres.
MLB betting statistics show that San Diego had won 8 of the last 10 home games against the Pirates before this series began yesterday. The Pirates have had a rough time lately against the Padres, losing 15 of the last 20 overall. They did break the losing streak at San Diego last year though, winning two of the three games for gamblers who took them as they bet MLB odds.
If the pitching rotations stay on schedule then it could be Zach Duke going in this MLB betting matchup for the Pirates. He has been the best starter so far this season for the Pirates and could give the Padres and their lineup some trouble in this MLB betting matchup. On offense the Pirates have struggled this season and there is really no power threat in the lineup. Pittsburgh has to scrape for runs and many times they are outscored in MLB betting matchups even when they get good pitching.
The Padres have been underrated this season but looking at their lineup it was easy to understand why fans were so hesitant to bet on MLB on them. Now with Chase Headley making an impact the lineup looks much better and the Padres are a threat in MLB betting on a regular basis. With David Eckstein bringing some energy and Headley bringing the power to support Adrian Gonzalez, the Padres are a team to consider as you bet on MLB odds. The pitching has been decent as well and if San Diego decides to keep Jake Peavy instead of trade him then perhaps the Padres can stay in the race this season and impact MLB betting odds.
The MLB betting trends lean to an under in this game but not by much. Before yesterday’s game the Under was 11-8-1 in the last 20 meetings between the two teams as MLB betting statistics tell us.
