Team Outlook and Scouting Report

LONG TERM OUTLOOK: TRENDING UP

The Padres are competing to make the playoffs and their chances are clearly on the rise. In our pre-season forecast they had a 3% chance of making the playoffs. On 4/21 they had a 0.3% chance before increasing to 17.1% on 5/12. From the start of the season to now their chances are up significantly to 11%. Before the start of their 4 game winning streak they were at 4.8%. The odds still give them a sliver of hope to win the NL at 3.8% (25/1 odds) and a 2% chance of winning it all (50/1).

Padres' Season Forecast Changes

Sportsline not only has a pick on every game and line our Experts provide winning Daily Fantasy Optimal Lineups every day.

SEASON-TO-DATE GRADE: A-

At 27-24 the Padres are exceeding expectations. The combined projected win total based on per game money lines is 25.7 wins. They have 13 bad losses (they were favored or got blown out as slight underdogs) vs 10 good wins (wins as clear underdog, or 2+ final margin in what was expected to be a close game, or a 5+ final margin). They have been better than expected on the road. Their 13-10- road record is +12% better than their expected win percentage. Their record over the last 3 weeks and win% (9-10, 47%) is under their expected 49% win percentage. In simulations, the Padres are a below average team and won 49.7% of the simulations played vs every other team as if they were playing on a neutral court with players available in the playoffs (#18 in the league). This is their peak for the season. Back on 4/19 they were at 42.6%. In our pre-season simulations they were ranked #20 winning 45.7%.

Their record is better than it should be. Their average run differential is -0.31 which ranks #11 in the NL, but their rank based on win percentage is #6. They are the #10 ranked team in run differential (based on all teams' road stats). This is the same ranking they have among home teams. Their average run differential in their past 12 games is -0.58.

The most likely scenario over the next 10 games is a record of 5-5 (25% chance). Their chances of winning 7 or more are 17.4%. At #6 in the league, they are behind the Braves by 1.5 points. Their projected wins (5.04) over the next 10 games is virtually the same so we do not expect a change in standings in the near term. They are ahead of the Pirates by half a point. With a +1.49 advantage in projected wins over their next 10 games they have a good chance of widening the gap.
