Sports betting handicappers have seen a total of 4 teams emerge within a half a game of each other in the NL central after a month and a half of internet sports betting. The St. Louis Cardinals emerged early on as a sports betting leader and contender in the NL central.
After a surprisingly hot start to the internet sports betting season the Cardinals faded in the middle of May into a first place sports betting tie with the Milwaukee Brewers. Milwaukee got off to a poor start to the sports betting baseball campaign but began to emerge in May as a leading contender in the NL central.
New manager Ken Macha had a considerable amount of credibility and success from his days in Oakland where he led the A’s to consistent sports betting success and post season contention. The Chicago Cubs entered 2009 as the sports betting favorite to take the NL central after blowing away the field last year.
But the Cubs have not shown any signs of recovering from their flat sports betting performance in last year’s playoffs where they were bounced with ease in the first round. Chicago has a loaded and expensive roster and figures to be in the thick of the race and also as the sports betting chalk to take the division crown.
The Cincinnati Reds have emerged from the darkness as a NL central contender due to a much improved pitching staff. The Houston Astros finished strong last year which made them a favorite to at least contend for a wild card berth this year. After a slow start the Astros began to pick up the pace in mid May.
The Pittsburgh Pirates continue to be a weak link in the National League and one of the worst organizations in all of sports. There is no evidence that the Bucs are ready to contend for anything other than the basement.
