San Diego Padres Handicapping
The San Diego Padres had a very disappointing 2005 MLB Season. After posting 87 victories in 2004, they won 5 fewer games. Their cryptonite in the 2004 MLB season was their play at home. Petco park was new and the Padres hitters had trouble adjusting. As a result, they were only 3 games above 500 all year at home. In the 2005 season, their batter adjusted, they became familiar with their surroundings and ended the season 11 games above 500 at home. In fact, betting on the Padres at home became a steady part of many of your betting tickets.
The problem in the 2005 MLB Season for the Padres was their road record. They could not get it done as they were 36-45 [-7 units] on the road. Much more striking was their 9-15 [-5 units] record on the road versus lefties. They had trouble hitting lefties on the road in 2005 which was the direct opposite of how they performed a year earlier. They were 15-9 [+7 units] against lefties on the road. So hen you are looking for why these Padres lost 5 more games in the 2005 season, you do not need to look further than their road performance against lefties. David Wells leaving had little to do with their drop.
So what do we expect to see out of these Padres in the 2006 MLB season? It is tough to tell. They are in a weak division that anybody could win. It could be the Giants division if Bonds is healthy. They will very likely hover around 500. Another problem with these Padres is that because they are young, it is easy for them to get stuck in a slump. Their record off of a loss is 3 games below 500 as opposed to their record off of a win which is 5 games above 500. In fact, it was pretty profitable to go against the Padres at home off of a loss the past 2 seasons and could spell another nice betting angle as you look to bet on the 2006 MLB season.
