The first month of the season is said and done with for MLB bettors, and now is a great time to take a look at some of the teams that have burned a hole in your pocket and some that have done tremendously well for boosting your bankroll in the National League over the course of the last week of ball.
 
Money-Makers
 
San Diego Padres (4-0, +$423 in L/4) – The Pads have really turned it on over the course of their last four games, as they have won all four in spite of the fact that they have only outscored their foes by a total of five runs in those efforts. There are still some problems jacking the ball out of the park, as the team leader has just two homers, but that's to be expected playing at Petco Park.
 
On Deck: The Padres could keep the good times rolling this week, as they have four with the Cubbies at Wrigley Field. If you take out what the Cubs have done against the Marlins this year, they are just 6-14 for the campaign.

Pittsburgh Pirates (8-2, +$852 in L/10)
– You're not going to find a hotter team right now than the Bucs, as they have won eight of their last 10 with all eight of the victories coming as underdogs. What's more impressive is the fact that they only averaged 4.43 runs per game in that stretch, proving that their pitching has the ability to carry them to victories throughout the summer.
 
On Deck: A long road trip wraps up with three games against the Brew Crew, who are playing better ball in their own right at the moment as well. There really isn't a tough series for the next four weeks for the Pirates, who could all of a sudden be a 35-win team by the end of May. Up next are series with Milwaukee, Washington, Seattle, the Mets, Milwaukee again, Houston, the Cubs, and Milwaukee for a third time.
 
Money-Burners
 
San Francisco Giants (0-5, -$621 in L/5) – We've already talked about what the Padres were able to do to the Giants, but the fact of the matter is that the losing streak dates back to the series with the Diamondbacks at home. The pitching staff has all of a sudden totally given out on Manager Bruce Bochy, as the team has allowed 25 runs in these last five games, which won't cut it playing in the low scoring NL West.
 
On Deck: It's off to the desert for three more games with the Diamondbacks, and the G-Men have to hope that they can do better on the road against the Snakes than they did when these two met last week at this time. From there, it's back home for a series against the Dodgers, which should, as always, be a good one.
 
New York Mets (0-4, -$432 in L/4) – Take out a start by Matt Harvey back on Apr. 24, and the Mets are 0-5 over the course of their last two series. What's worse for the team is that it has already played 15 games at home on the campaign as opposed to just eight on the road, and when the schedule balances out, it is going to be a heck of a lot more difficult for New York to get into the win column.
 
On Deck: Those road games start right away this week with a tour through the NL East. The Marlins are the first team up, and there is no excuse not to take at least two out of three from a team that hasn't won a series all year long. The trip to Turner Field this weekend might be a whole heck of a lot more difficult.
