Padres Loading Up for Run at Dodgers in Postseason
As we get into our Padres vs Dodgers series odds matchup it’s clear that not much has changed when it comes to how the oddsmakers feel about the Los Angeles Dodgers, even with the Padres acquiring Juan Soto and Josh Bell at the deadline.
The blue shirts are still a big favorite at home (-155) to start off this series. This get-together won’t have much impact on the National League standings, where the Dodgers have a massive lead (12.5 games), but it will send the message one way or another as to how serious Dave Roberts’ team is should take the Friars heading into the postseason.
The Dodgers would have to go 28-29 over their next 57 while requiring the Padres to win 39 of their last 54 to pull even in the West. The Padres’ road to a World Series goes through L.A. with the mental posturing starting tonight.
Dodgers’ Massive Edge at Home Still Makes them Favorites
The National League West standings aren’t the only hurdle for the Padres, it’s home field advantage and pitching that may ultimately do them in. Over their last 71 home games, Los Angeles is 54-17 (76.06%) at Dodgers Stadium to go with a sparkling 48-16 (75%) overall record against the National League West. Much of that success can be attributed to their massive edge on the mound most nights.
The Blue Crew owns the best staff era in baseball (2.94) to complement an offense that is the most feared in the National League. These games are no longer about winning the division, it’s about showing each other who is stronger in a short series which is what the playoffs are all about. The Los Angeles Dodgers team has beaten the Padres five of seven this season, including three of four in Los Angeles.
Bettors Lining Up to Take Dodgers Over
Baseball Point Spreads betting has very little to do with the standings and everything to do with properly managing your money. Each series, not the game, needs to be carefully wagered on in order to pad the bankroll. This is what we’re going to do here as we conclude our Padres vs Dodgers series odds.
If you like the Padres to get a game in this series then we have to determine when that may be. A $100 bettor can get back +155 on his wager tonight and likely similar tomorrow. This is how we’re playing it.
The first game of a series is always the game you want to win when betting odds. Cash your ticket tonight and your $100 wager turns into $255. If the Padres can’t get it done, come back tomorrow with that same $100 wager on the Friars. Overall, you’ll not win as much but still a profit.
A loss would mean another $100 wager on Sunday in hopes of getting some of that money back. The idea is to win and then get out of betting the series. Let’s go with Padres and under as two straight wagers until we cash out.Follow us on Twitter
