The St Louis Cardinals betting odds are looking promising this year and will next year too. They ended the 2015 campaign with 100 wins, and first place overall, before losing to the Cubs in the playoffs. Historically speaking they’re the second most successful team in major league baseball history, with 11 World Series championships, which is second only to the New York Yankees’ untouchable 27 world titles. The Cardinals do have the most World Series titles among National League franchises.
Their field has been graced with such hall of fame greats as Lou Brock, Dizzy Dean, Bob Gibson, Whitey Herzog, Rogers Hornsby, Joe Medwick, Stan Musial, Branch Rickey, Red Schoendienst, Ozzie Smith, and Bruce Sutter. More recently, we’ve seen the likes of Mark McGwire (for better or worse) and Albert Pujols be the face of the franchise.

St Louis Cardinals Betting
If you’re betting on the Cards this year, here’s what you need to know. Experts have them placing either first or second in the National League Central Division (against the Chicago Cubs), and advancing to the postseason, either via division title or Wild Card.
They have become what the New England Patriots are to football, and the San Antonio Spurs are to basketball: A well run winning factory that is in contention, year after year. Their bad years are still playoff bound.
If you’re going to bet on the Cards, it’s never a bad bet. They’re literally favoured to win just about every game they play and win roughly 65% of them, year after year. The faces in the lineup may change, but their position in the standings really doesn’t. This year’s cast will include Matt Carpenter, Stephen Piscotty, Matt Holliday, Randal Grichuk, Yadier Molina, Kolten Wong, Aledmys Diaz, Carlos Martinez and Jeremy Hazelbaker.
When betting on any baseball action, try to remember that the best teams only win about 65-70% of their games, and a bad team will still win 30% or 40% of their games.
So if a lowly team in last place is playing a talented powerhouse in a 3 game series, the favorites may lose a game– even at home. You don’t see this as often in the NBA or NFL, as the league leaders routinely beat the lower class.
