San Diego Padres 2024 World Series Odds

San Diego Padres MLB Betting

When the San Diego Padres made the playoffs in the 2020 COVID-shortened season, gamblers and media got caught up in the excitement. San Diego ownership began to spend freely, and for the first time in franchise history, the Padres seemed serious about the player-salary arms race. However, the Padres never quite met expectations. In 2022, they went 89-73 and lost the NLCS. Last year, San Diego fell to 82-20 and out of the playoff money. These days, ownership and gamblers have soured on the Padres. San Diego is getting a lukewarm reaction on the future market and their payroll ranks near the middle of MLB.

In 2023, the San Diego Padres had a record of 82-80 and finished 3rd in the National League West Division. Offensively, San Diego ranked 13th for runs scored, 20th for batting average, 13th for OPS, 13th for home runs, and 9th for stolen bases.

Defensively, San Diego ranked 2nd for earned run average, 13th for WHIP, 8th for strikeouts, 2nd for quality starts, 8th for fewest errors, and 10th for bullpen ERA. San Diego was -2148 on the moneyline and +310 on the run line.

Last season, the Padres drowned gamblers in red ink. It got to the point where the betting public opposed San Diego because of their poor value. San Diego did turn a small profit on the runline. Following an uninspiring offseason, there is little enthusiasm for the Padres by the betting community.

Key offseason acquisitions: RHP Michael King, RHP Randy Vásquez, RHP Jhony Brito, LHP Yuki Matsui, RHP Woo-Suk Go, LHP Wandy Peralta, C Kyle Higashioka

Key offseason departures: OF Juan Soto, LHP Josh Hader, LHP Blake Snell, RHP Nick Martinez, RHP Michael Wacha, RHP Seth Lugo, OF Trent Grisham

When the Padres traded Soto to the Yankees in December, they altered their timeline in a big way. They landed pitching pieces that could help them well into the future, and they gained significant payroll flexibility. They also undeniably compromised their 2024 roster. Now, the Padres will do their best to thread the needle, hoping to contend in 2024 while building for success beyond that with a In the Soto trade, the Padres also sent Grisham to New York, along with Soto, leaving their outfield particularly barren.

They’ve yet to make a move to address openings in center and left field, with Fernando Tatis Jr. and José Azocar the only two outfielders on the current 40-man roster.

It’s not hard to understand why the Padres traded Juan Soto. He wasn’t going to re-sign with them, which left them an injury away from getting nothing more than a compensatory draft pick for him after the season.

While Michael King has a high ceiling, the Padres’ rotation should be much less effective than it was last year.

The Padres lost two wildly important and valuable players in the same offseason, though. Pragmatic or not, there’s no way to sugarcoat that.

San Diego ranks 13th for MLB payroll.
