Baseball Betting Preview: Cardinals vs. Mets

The Cardinals will travel to the Big Apple to take on the New York Mets for a fantastic bet on baseball match up.

Anyone looking for a baseball betting series on that night will be hard pressed to find a better sports betting opportunity in the bet on baseball offerings.

Baseball betting has been full of surprises this year yet anyone that bets on baseball with regularity surely wouldn't find these two teams' relative success surprising. The Mets are second place in the MLB East baseball betting standings and trail only the World Champion Phillies. However, at 33-31 there's no doubt that they're not quite living up to the potential that many sports betting fans expected heading into the season with a monster payroll and new stadium.

The Cards also find themselves in second place in their respective baseball betting division. If you've bet on baseball this season you've likely been impressed with the Cards' play thus far. The team’s record of 36-31 in the baseball betting is among the best in the NL, yet they still trail the Brew Crew by a game (it should be mentioned that the Brewers are among the hottest teams in baseball betting right now).

Pedro Feliciano will likely take the mound for the home team Mets in this baseball betting match up. With a 2.89 ERA and 26 Ks in 28 innings this young man knows his way around the mound. But he'll have to be at his best as he faces on of the best hitting lineups in the NL.

Led by slugger Albert Pujols, the best player in baseball betting, the Red Birds offense has been powerful all baseball betting season. Pujols has been scorching opponents through three months with 23 HRs, 58 RBI and a .320 BA.

St Louis will send Todd Wellemeyer to the mound, and he's got 6 wins so far in the 2009 MLB baseball betting season but has an ERA of 5.36. All things being equal, neither team has been tremendous of late, so the Mets will likely win this match up based on home field advantage. The Cards are just 15-15 on the road while the Mets are 18-1 in the baseball betting encounters in their brand new back yard.
