MLB betting enthusiasts will have an interesting matchup to watch on Saturday as the San Diego Padres host the San Francisco Giants in the middle game of a three-game series.
The series is the finale for both teams since neither will make the playoffs. The Giants had their chance but faded down the stretch and became a go-against team for those that bet on MLB at the sports book.
MLB betting at the online sportsbook normally favors Matt Cain when he goes to the mound and that will be the case again here but Cain has faded badly down the stretch. Cain was a Cy Young candidate earlier this MLB betting season but recently has only been a candidate to bet on MLB at the sports book with the other team. Overall, Cain is 14-7 with a 2.88 ERA. Those numbers sound great in MLB betting but a closer look reveals problems. Cain did pitch well last time out against the Cubs but before that start he had given up 7, 4, 4, 2 and four runs in his previous five starts. He was particularly bad in key games that could have kept the Giants in the Wild Card race. It is not all his fault though, as he has pitched a lot of innings this season. He is about the same home and on the road in MLB betting. He is 7-4 with a 2.72 ERA at home while on the road he is 7-3 record with a 3.06 ERA. He has a 1-3 record at San Diego in his career even though he has a 2.79 ERA. San Francisco is 21-11 in MLB betting in Cain’s starts this season. That sounds good until you think about the many times he was laying nearly 2-1 in bet on MLB odds at the online sportsbook.
One of the reasons that Giants are not going to win the Wild Card is that they have struggled at San Diego. Before this MLB betting series began they had lost 7 of the last 10 at San Diego. That included all six games this MLB betting season. It is really inexcusable to be losing at San Diego considering how bad the Padres are. The last time the teams met in San Diego back in May, all three games went under the MLB betting total.
