San Diego has won six straight as a dog. To see when the last time a team pulled this off, use this SDQL text:

The Orioles did it last season. What is somewhat interesting is that teams in this spot have been +138 on the moneyline, so their win streak is not impressing the linesmakers. Nonetheless, teams in this spot are 5-1 since the start of the database in 2004 if they are not a dog of more than 135, with the only loss by a 1-0 score.
Going further, using this SDQL:

We can see that the Indians and Rockies both have EIGHT straight wins as a dog. Colorado's streak (6/4/2009 through 6/13/2009) ended because they were finally a favorite and the Indians' streak (4/3/2011 to 4/11/2011) ended with a loss.
It will be interesting to see how the Padres do today.
I have been on the Padres when they get a W2 or more because they will usually be a dog. They are going to have their share of win streaks, even the worst teams win at least 60 games a year.
The padres won last night Cause Dusty Baker Pulled Latos out of the Game!!

I have been on the wagon, all week. Alas, all good things come to an end. I am not going against them, but not worth backing tonight, IMO. Go Pads!
