Gamblers who bet on MLB action always love to watch televised games so this should be a popular contest on Sunday night.
MLB betting stats tell us that the Cubs were 9-6 last year against the Cardinals and they were 4-2 at Wrigley against St. Louis. What was somewhat surprising about this series last season was the even though the Cubs won 9 of the 15 games versus the MLB odds, the Cardinals outscored the Cubs 66-62 as MLB betting statistics tell us.
The Cardinals were just about .500 on the road last season going 40-41 but that meant they made money for fans who bet on MLB action since they were sometimes underdogs on the road. St. Louis has Albert Pujols who can impact MLB betting lines at any moment and St. Louis is hoping for a healthy year from Cris Carpenter and Adam Wainwright. It is possible that Carpenter will get the start in this MLB betting matchup on Sunday. MLB betting scheduling information tells us that the Cardinals are playing the final game of their 7-game road trip tonight.
The Cubs were a very good home team in MLB betting a year ago going 55-26. That made gamblers who bet on MLB action some money even though Chicago was favored in nearly every game at home. The Cubs get a lot of public support in MLB betting and their lines are sometimes shaded a little bit because of that support. Chicago was still profitable at home though, even with the higher MLB betting lines. MLB betting information shows that the Cubs are thought to be one of the teams that can win the National League this season. Their lineup is solid and overall their pitching staff looks pretty good. Picking up Kevin Gregg as the closer from Florida also looks like a solid move. Chicago will be overvalue in MLB betting again this season but unlike other sports, all you have to do is win the game in baseball to get paid and the Cubs are capable of winning any contest versus the MLB odds.
