Baseball betting on Wednesday includes a fantastic pitching matchup as the Houston Astros host the St. Louis Cardinals.
Gamblers who bet on baseball may be looking to take the under as Chris Carpenter goes up against Roy Oswalt.
Baseball betting scheduling shows that this is the finale of a three-game set between the two teams. The home team has traditionally dominated this baseball betting series. Before this series began the Astros had won six of the last 10 in baseball betting against the Cardinals.
Gamblers who bet on baseball totals really like this game to go under. Baseball betting stats support the game going under. The under is 6-3-1 in the last 10 games at Houston between the two teams. With Carpenter and Oswalt a low scoring game is definitely possible in this baseball betting matchup. Carpenter is 8-3 on the season with a 2.26 ERA as baseball betting numbers indicate while Oswalt is 6-4 with a 3.65 ERA.
Carpenter was excellent in his last start nearly pitching a complete game shutout against the Diamondbacks. He has simply been excellent all season for the Cardinals. Roy Oswalt has won three of this past four starts as online sports betting numbers indicate. He was brilliant in his last start against the Dodgers, allowing only four hits in a complete game win. He is 3-0 with a 1.66 ERA in his past five starts as bet on baseball stats show. Oswalt is 9-7 with a 3.11 ERA in 26 regular-season appearances against St. Louis.
Baseball betting stats show that the Cardinals have not done that well at Houston. This is very much a home dominated series in sports betting. Last year the Cardinals lost their last three games at Houston by scores of 3-0, 8-5 and 3-2 as baseball betting statistics show. Two of those three games went under the baseball betting total.
The Cardinals have actually been a solid road team in baseball betting this season. That is mainly due to a pitching staff that has been ranked in the Top 5 in the league. The Astros have been nothing special at home this season which is one reason they are really not a factor in the National League playoff race. Houston’s offense has just not put up enough runs as they rank in the bottom third of the league as bet on baseball bet stats show.
