It is the last game of a four-game series between the two teams before the All-Star break. It has been a home team dominated series recently so that is something for gamblers betting on baseball to remember.
Baseball betting trends pointed to the Cubs before this series began on Thursday. They had won 7 of the last 10 games in baseball betting against the Cardinals in Chicago. Earlier this season in Chicago, the Cubs took two of three against the Cardinals in some high scoring games. The scores in baseball betting were 7-5, 8-7 and 7-4 which is somewhat surprising considering both teams are struggling to score runs this season.
The baseball betting total trends are intriguing on this series. Before Thursday’s game, 11 of the last 20 games between the two had gone under the betting on baseball total. What is interesting though is that 7 of the 10 in Chicago had gone over the baseball betting number at the sportsbook. That tells gamblers betting on baseball at the sportsbook to bet the Cubs and Cardinals over in Chicago but under in St. Louis.
The Cardinals have actually been more profitable on the road this season in baseball betting than at home. St. Louis wins games with pitching and with Albert Pujols driving in runs. That is their formula for success and so far in baseball betting this season it has kept them in the race. Their pitching has been ranking in the Top 10 in the league this season as baseball betting numbers show.
Chicago has been a huge disappointment so far for gamblers betting on baseball this season. Fortunately for the Cubs they play in the National League Central so they are still very much in the race. Chicago has very similar baseball betting stats to the Cardinals in terms of offense and defense. They pitch well but struggle to score runs. One difference is that the Cubs are good at home but struggle on the road in baseball betting. They are also still overpriced in baseball odds at the online sportsbook.
