St. Louis Cardinals vs. San Diego Padres MLB Betting Odds & Picks (04-03-2024)

Last season, two of the most disappointing teams with the baseball betting odds were the St. Louis Cardinals and San Diego Padres. St. Louis missed the playoffs for the first time after four straight postseason bids. And that has put third-year manager Oliver Marmol on the clock. Marmol replaced Mike Shildt, who was fired despite three playoff seasons in his three full seasons at the helm. Now, Shildt is the manager of the Padres. And there is nothing more he would love than to beat his old team. Shildt left St. Louis with bitterness.
