Baseball betting line action for the Padres and Mets is a baseball gambling matchup of a surprising upstart against an underachiever. Baseball betting line handicappers will have to continue to evaluate the overall baseball gambling value of the Mets and their danger of overlays.
The probable starters to be listed on the baseball betting line will be right hander Kevin Correia of San Diego and left hander Oliver Perez of the Mets.
Neither pitcher has had baseball gambling success against their opponent as Correia is 0-2 lifetime against the Mets, though with a sparkling 1.62 earned run average while Perez is 1-3 with a 5.40 earned run average against San Diego. Perez was bombed for 8 runs in 4 innings in his first start.
The Padres entered action this year against the baseball betting line as a team picked by most handicappers to be a bottom feeder with a small payroll of inexperienced players.
San Diego, however, may have other ideas as they beat the baseball betting line in 5 out of their first 7 games of the season. The key component for the Padres success against the baseball betting line has been their pitching staff, which was top ranked in all of baseball with a stellar 2.57 earned run average.
The Padres offense was not an asset against the baseball betting line as it ranked just 21st. Henry Blanco was supplying power with 2 home runs and a .333 average to start the season.
The New York Mets split their first 6 games of the season with two wins to start the year followed by 3 losses in the 4 games that followed. The Mets were ranked in the middle of the pack for both hitting and pitching to begin the season against the baseball betting line.
The Mets are a highly "public" team with a lot of dollars and action flowing their way which makes them on of the more expensive teams to bet against the baseball betting line with. Once again they are a favorite to win the NL East but once again the results so far, as is often the case with New York, have been uninspiring.
