Dodgers vs Padres: MLB 2014 Real Deal Opening Day Odds Update
Although we understand that Major League Baseball wants to grow their following on a global scale – we still think it sucks that the 2014 MLB season opened seven days ago in Australia. That’s a conversation for another day though as the “read deal” Opening Day is upon as the San Diego Padres host the Los Angeles Dodgers tonight. First pitch is slated for 8:05 PM ET on Sunday, March 30, 2014, at Petco Park in beautiful San Diego, California.
LA Dodgers rolled through Arizona in the Land Down Under
While the idea of starting the Great American Pastime on a different Continent bugs us, we banked a nice chunk of change when Clayton Kershaw and the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks 3-2 a week ago today. We are going to be bullish on the Dodgers all season as Big Blue is stacked from top to bottom. Los Angeles pummeled San Diego during the second half of NL West play last season as they posted a 5-1 record by a combined 18-6 final count. LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu looks to build on his 14-8 rookie record (3.00 ERA) and can open the season at 2-0 after he pitched five scoreless innings in the Dodgers 7-5 win over Arizona in Australia.
San Diego Padres: Path to first playoff appearance since 2006 begins
Being a fan of the Friars as not been a pleasant experience recently as San Diego has posted a 223-263 record over three straight losing seasons. Bet365 bookmakers are expecting more of the same this season has they’ve posted the Padres total wins at 79 games on their futures betting board. That said, San Diego may have one of the deepest outfields in the Majors this season and they will be a competitive Crew. RHP Andrew Cashner, who is making his career first Opening Day start, was impressive down the stretch last season as he posted a miniscule 0.76 ERA over his 23.2 innings pitched in September. We are laying 500 units on the Dodgers money line here!
