Cleveland split their first 8 games of the MLB betting exhibition slate.

Chad Huffman was on fire to start exhibition play for the Tribe as he was hitting .571 with 3 doubles, 1 home run, and 3 runs batted in.
Huffman had a slugging percentage of 1.000. Travis Buck was also bashing the ball with an average of .500 with 1 home run and 3 runs batted in. Lonnie Chisenhall was another Cleveland Indian that showed up to camp ready to work as he was hitting .455 with a .909 slugging percentage with 2 doubles, 1 home run, and 3 runs batted in.
David Huff was outstanding from the mound as he pitched 5 shutout innings to begin the exhibition season and had 1 win.
San Diego entered spring training trying to put behind their epic collapse of last year in which they had the National League West Division seemingly all wrapped up only to blow it with an epic September collapse. The Padres had a MLB baseball betting mark of 3-3 to start the exhibition season.
Chase Headley was off to a great start for San Diego as he was hitting .700 with 3 runs scored, 1 double, and 1 run batted in. Mike Baxter was also ripping the ball with a .500 average with 3 runs scored, 1 home run, and run batted in. Cory Luebke began the season with 3 shutout innings from the hill.
The Indians opened at Sports-Gambling as a +6500 choice to win the 2011 World Series while the Padres were a +4000 choice with the MLB odds to win the Fall Classic in October.
