Albert Pujols has been a one man wrecking crew and has left a major impression on anyone that has bet on baseball as he pursues the ever elusive Triple Crown. On July 27th the best team in baseball betting will travel to the City of the Arch to try and shut down Pujols and the Red Birds in a battle of NL division leaders.
Baseball betting has seen the LA Dodgers get off to the best start in the league. LA recently notched its 60th win of the season becoming the first team in either bet on baseball league to do so. That’s a good omen, as the team that’s claimed that mid season honor has gone onto the baseball betting World Series 80% of the time. Manny is back and with an 8-game lead in the bet on baseball NL West standings this team looks destined for the post season.
The Cards have a much more tenuous grip on the NL Central, one of the most contentious divisions in baseball betting. Leading by just two games with both the Bubs and Brew Crew in hot pursuit, the Red Bird’s meal ticket this season has been the red hot Pujols who is threatening to become the NL Triple Crown winner in baseball betting in more than 70 years. He leads the NL baseball betting in HRs (30), RBIs (90) and is second in BA (.333). And just for good measure, he also has more runs (77) than anyone in the MLB baseball betting as well.
Neither team has faired all that well in the baseball betting against their respective divisions. The Cards are just 7-10 against the NL West while the Dodgers are just 9-7 vs. the NL Central in the baseball betting.
The Red Birds pitching has gotten stronger as the season has worn on and Chris Carpenter has shown signs of becoming the dominant pitcher he once was. The Dodgers starting pitching has been strong as well but it’s been propped up by the strongest bull pen in baseball betting. The Dodgers’ bull pen not only leads the NL baseball betting in ERA but they logging a lot of innings lately as well.
Look for LA to pitch around Pujols and take their chances with other batters like De Rosa. Even if the Cards can touch the Dodgers starters, the bull pen will be tough to overcome. If the Dodgers get some early runs they will win this baseball betting match up.
