MLB odds handicappers are expecting the San Diego Padres to be in rebuilding mode this year as they suffered severe roster losses in the off season that will damage their MLB baseball betting prospects.
The San Diego Padres will host the Chicago White Sox in an inter league spring training exhibition matchup that will start at 10:05 PM ET. Sports Gambling will have side and total odds on this game so be sure and open your account today.
The White Sox lost 13 of their first 21 exhibition games with the MLB lines. Chicago is pegged to be the main threat to the Minnesota Twins in the AL Central this year and won 88 games in 2010. Slugger Paul Konerko was resigned and another slugger, Adam Dunn, was acquired in the off season to power the lineup.
Tyler Flowers has had the hot bat in spring training so far as he was hitting .500 with 2 home runs and 6 runs batted in. Lastings Milledge has been a major source of power so far in spring training with a .326 average and 4 home runs with 10 runs batted in. John Danks has looked sharp from the hill with a 2-0 record and a 1.65 earned run average.
The San Diego Padres led the National League West all the way to the end of the season where they left the door open for the eventual World Series Champion San Francisco Giants to sneak in and rip it from them.
San Diego had a baseball wagering record of 10-10 to start the exhibition season. The loss of slugger Adrian Gonzalez is one of many key off season departures that will damage the Padres 2010 prospects.
The White Sox were a +2000 selection at Sports-Gambling to win the World Series and were a +1100 selection to win the American League. Chicago was +120 to win the American League Central and had an over under win total of 84.5.
The Padres had an over under win total of 75.5 and were +900 at Sports-Gambling to win the National League West. San Diego was +2300 to win the National League and had MLB odds of +5500 to win the World Series.
