Sports gambling fans have seen some strong over/under trends develop in the National league after two weeks of online sports gambling action. The Los Angeles Dodgers have long had the sports gambling reputation for being a solid pitching team with just enough offense and that is why their mark of 9 overs in their first 10 games was such a surprise to veteran handicappers.
The Dodgers ranked 2nd in run production while ranking a poor 25th for staff earned run average and this change in perception has been felt on the board.
The Florida Marlins were another sports gambling commodity that was trending heavily over the total with 9 overs in their first 11 games. Florida ranked 7th in the majors for run production but just 21st overall for staff earned run average which has added up to some high scoring games.
The Philadelphia Phillies went over the MLB odds total in 8 out of their first 10 games and it surprises very few people as they are a loaded offensive machine that ranked first in all of baseball for runs scored after two weeks of play.
Arizona was yet another National League team that was trending heavily over the total. The Diamondbacks went over the sports gambling number in 8 out of their first 10 games based on the high scoring combination of the 3rd ranked lineup for run production and a pitching staff that ranked 22nd for earned run average.
On the bottom end of the sports gambling chart were the slumping Houston Astros who went under the total in 9 out of their first 10 games. Houston was ranked a distant 30th overall in the big leagues for run production while ranking a poor 23rd for staff earned run average, which has made for low scoring games.
The St. Louis Cardinals have been another strong under team as they went over the sports gambling total in just 3 out of their first 10 games. The Redbirds excellent pitching staff that ranked 3rd overall in the majors for earned run average is the big reason for the low scoring games.
