Likely Pitching Matchup: Chad Bettis vs. Bryan Mitchell


According to oddsmakers from online sports book YouWager, the Padres are -105 money line favorites to beat the Rockies, who have odds of +100 to pull off the upset tonight on the road. As for the total, it currently sits at 8 runs.


The Rockies opened as -120 money line favorites but their odds dropped to +100, while the Padres’ odds climbed from +100 up to -105. The total, meanwhile, hit the board at 8.5 but has dropped to 8 at the majority of sportsbooks.

Bet Tonight's MLB Games


As of this writing, 63% of betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Rockies to beat the Padres on the money line. Meanwhile, 54% of the betting tickets are on the under.


I like the Padres to pick up their first win of the season. The Rockies are just 1-4 in Bettis’ last five road starts against the Padres and are -14 in his last five road outings dating back to last year. The Padres, meanwhile, are 7-1 in their last eight home games versus a team with a road winning percentage of less than .400 and have won 11 of their last 15 games versus an opponent with a winning percentage below .400.
