Gamblers who bet on MLB action will want to know that this will be the first road game of the season for the Cardinals as they played their first seven games of the season at home. Let’s look at more MLB betting numbers for St. Louis and Arizona.
MLB betting stats show that this series between St. Louis and Arizona is a home team series. Overall the teams have split their last 14 meetings but the Diamondbacks are 5-1 at home in the last six games as MLB betting stats indicated. What is somewhat strange about this series is that St. Louis has outscored the Diamondbacks 77-62 in the last 14 games between the two teams, yet they are 7-7 against the MLB odds.
It is possible that Adam Wainwright gets the start for St. Louis and it could be Doug Davis going for the Diamondbacks. The Cardinals were just below .500 on the road last season versus the MLB odds at 40-41 but they still made money for fans that bet on MLB action since they were underdogs more often than not. The Cardinals have a solid pitching staff and they have baseball’s best player in Albert Pujols so St. Louis does get respect in MLB betting.
Arizona had a very nice 48-33 record at home last season in MLB betting but they didn’t make gamblers who bet on MLB action any money since they were favored nearly every game. Brandon Webb and Dan Haren are often big favorites and when they lose at home the MLB betting money numbers are affected. If Davis goes in this MLB betting matchup the number would be more reasonable than if someone like Webb or Haren was on the mound.
MLB betting stats tell us that the Cardinals and Diamondbacks usually score some runs as an average of 9.9 runs per game have been scored in the last two years when the teams have played. Arizona is a ballpark where runs can be scored so a high total in MLB betting is possible for this Monday night matchup.
