Baseball betting odds have been quite a bargain on the San Diego Padres who have gotten off to a surprisingly good start to the MLB betting season. Baseball betting odds have also been solid for the defending world champion Philadelphia Phillies, who are again a MLB betting favorite for post season action.
The probable starting pitchers to be posted on the baseball betting odds list for this matchup from Philadelphia are righthander Chris Young of the Padres and righthander Brett Myers of the Phillies. Young is off to an outstanding start to the MLB betting season with a 2-0 record and a sparkling 1.38 earned run average. He is 2-1 lifetime against the baseball betting odds versus the Phillies with a 1.96 earned run average. Myers has gotten off to a more shaky start against the baseball betting odds this year with a record of 1-1 and a 5.54 earned run average. Myers is 2-1 lifetime against the baseball betting odds versus the Padres with a 2.37 earned run average.
The Padres won 6 out of their first 8 games against the baseball betting odds as they began the season with back-to-back home series against the Los Angeles Dodgers followed by the San Francisco Giants before hitting the road to face the New York Mets. Pitching has been the key towards San Diego's success against the baseball betting odds as their staff earned run average was the third best in all of baseball. The offense, on the other hand, has been in the bottom third of the rankings.
The Philadelphia Phillies won 4 out of their first 7 games against the baseball betting odds. They opened the season at home against the Atlanta Braves before hitting the road to face the Colorado Rockies and Washington Nationals. The Phillies have been a near mirror opposite of the Padres as they ranked in the top ten in baseball for offensive production but their pitching staff was near the bottom with a ranking of 28th. This has also caused the Phillies to go over the total in 5 out of their first 7 games.
