San Diego Padres 2022 Season
San Diego Padres’ 2022 season was a success. They managed to advance to the postseason as a wild card team and defeated the New York Mets in the Wild Card series. Unfortunately, their run ended in the Divisional Round when the Los Angeles Dodgers managed to defeat them. They added All-Star shortstop Xander Bogaerts to a lineup that already included Fernando Tatis Jr..
What will it take for them to complete the three-headed monster in the NL West?

Betting on the San Diego Padres
Padres Spread (Run Line)
When betting on baseball, you’ll be faced with three standard options: the moneyline, over/under and run line.
The run line is a bet on the margin of victory, like a point spread. But because baseball is low scoring, the spread will almost always be -1.5 for the favorite and +1.5 for the underdog. The payouts for each will just be adjusted based on each team’s strength.
Here’s a brief example of a run line for a hypothetical Padres game:
- Seattle Mariners (+1.5)
- San Diego Padres (-1.5)
As shown above, the Padres are favored by 1.5 runs against the Mariners; the minus sign (-) indicates San Diego is the favorite, while a plus sign (+) is used to denote the underdog. Bettors who wanted to back San Diego here would be “laying” those 1.5 runs, meaning for their bets to cash the Padres would need to win by two runs or more. Bettors who selected the Mariners +1.5 would win if Seattle won outright or kept a loss to 1 run.
The Padres were 80-94 on run lines in 2022, covering 46 percent of the time – putting them in the bottom 10 in the league.
Many first time bettors are wary of run line bets, especially when riding with the hometown team. In that case, moneyline wagers are often seen as the safer way to go. A moneyline bet is a bet on who wins the game -- no run line involved.
Let’s use the same example from before to understand the moneyline better:
- Seattle Mariners +150
- San Diego Padres -180
Just as with run lines, the minus sign (-) signifies a team is favored, while the plus sign (+) means a team is the underdog. The moneyline odds, written in American odds format here, indicate how big or small a favorite that team is, written in increments of $100. For example, to win $100 on the Padres, a bettor would need to risk $180. On the flip side, a $100 bet on the Mariners would net $150 if they pulled the upset.
The Padres went 95-79 in 2022, putting them in second place in the NL West and in the upper part of the league table.
Odds can differ from sportsbook to sportsbook, so always make sure you shop for the best line with The Action Network app.
Betting on a team to win or cover a run line isn’t the only type of wager allowed on MLB games. Almost all sportsbooks will offer a total on the game, also known as an over/under. This bet is not on the winner of the contest, but on the number of runs the two teams will combine to score; sportsbooks hang a number, and bettors can wager either over or under that total.
If the number for our hypothetical Padres-Mariners matchup was 8 runs, over bettors would require 9 points or more to cash their tickets, while those who bet the under would need 7 or fewer runs. If the two teams scored exactly 8 runs between them, that bet would push and all wagers would be refunded.
Padres totals in 2022 were sixth in the league when betting the over, hitting at a 82-86-6 clip.
Some bettors find more entertainment and success betting on more specific outcomes than the result of the game. Prop bets cover a wide market of wagers on player stats, discrete in-game events, and any style of yes/no question. Many props are bets on specific players and their performance, such as betting Manny Machado over 1.5 hits on a given night, or betting that Blake Snell will strike out over 9.5 batters. Some props can be shorter term, such as betting on the number of runs scored in the first five innings or who will hit a home run. Offerings tend to vary depending on the sportsbook, so use our sportsbook reviews to find the best bet for you.
Expectations are high right now in San Diego, so bettors will have to shop for the best line to get good odds on Padres futures bets. Futures are bets that focus on long-term outcomes, like the Padres to win the NL West, win the National League Pennant, win the World Series, or even individual awards like winning league MVP.
