Bet on the MLBBaseball betting Sunday night will feature a National League west division worst versus first matchup to bet on sports with as the Dodgers host the Padres from LA. Baseball betting fans have seen the Dodgers be one of the top money winners to bet on sports with this baseball season while the Padres are drowning in red ink.
The scheduled probable starting pitchers for this baseball betting matchup are right hander Tim Stauffer of the Padres and right hander Vicente Padilla of the Dodgers. Stauffer has been the more effective commodity to bet on sports with this year and makes the Padres a live dog in this one.
Stauffer had a baseball betting record of 3-6 with a 3.76 earned run average. In his last 3 baseball betting appearances he went 2-1 with a 4.32 earned run average. He is 1-2 in his baseball betting career against the Dodgers with a 5.29 earned run average.
Padilla was 9-6 with a 4.72 earned run average. In his last 3 baseball betting appearances he went 1-1 with a 5.06 earned run average. He is 2-1 against the Padres in his baseball betting career with a 3.35 earned run average.
The Padres have been a dreadful baseball betting commodity on the road this year with a mark of 23-42. Just 25 out of those 65 games went under the total. The Padres ranked 30th overall in run production and 23rd overall in staff earned run average. Adrian Gonzalez has been one of the few bright spots for San Diego as he was hitting .273 with 34 home runs and 77 runs batted in. He had an on base percentage of .406.
The Dodgers were 41-26 at home and one of the better balanced teams in baseball as they ranked 11th overall in run production and 1st overall in staff earned run average. They went 8-4 from August 20 through September 1. The lineup was led by Matt Kemp who had 29 stolen bases and 81 runs scored with a team best .316 average. Kemp also flexed his muscles with 23 home runs and 87 runs batted in. Andre Ethier had 27 home runs and 88 runs batted in.
Bet on the MLBGamblers might feel compelled to place their baseball bets on San Francisco. Rival evaluators who scouted the Giants’ offensive work during spring training all left thinking the same thing; pitchers from opposing teams will have to dig deep. Similar to the Kansas City Royals of the previous two years, the Giants are not known for striking out too often.
