The MLB betting odds on St. Louis will have the Cardinals as the favorite but the trends actually support Detroit.
MLB odds trends tell us that the Tigers have actually won six of the last ten games against St. Louis. Despite playing in different leagues, these teams have actually played quite a bit in recent seasons. The last time they played in St. Louis though was in 2006 when the Cardinals swept the Tigers in three straight versus the MLB odds at the online sportsbook. Online sports betting information shows that the last six meetings between the teams have all been in Detroit.
The Tigers have been about a .500 team on the road this season versus the MLB odds. Detroit has been leading the American League Central this season as MLB betting odds numbers indicate. That is not saying much considering that division is not very good but Detroit is above .500 and they do have some positive MLB odds numbers. The Tigers are right around the Top 10 in both runs scored and runs allowed as MLB odds statistics show. Edwin Jackson has been leading the pitching staff as MLB odds numbers show while Curtis Granderson has been leading the hitters. Miguel Cabrera has also had a nice season for the Tigers.
St. Louis has been better versus the MLB odds this season at home than on the road. The Cardinals have Albert Pujols but so far this season no other player has done much to support him. The Cardinals offense ranks in the bottom third in runs scored as MLB odds stats show. The pitching has been very good for St. Louis though as MLB odds numbers show and that has kept them in the National League Central race. Online sports betting information tells us that the Cardinals have four solid starters led by Chris Carpenter and Adam Wainwright.
Two of the three meetings in St. Louis three years ago went under the MLB betting odds total at the online sportsbook and that could happen again in this series.
