Cardinals World Series Odds
Just over a third of the way into the Major League Baseball season, the St. Louis Cardinals sit very close the top of the National League Central. In a tight 6-team division, the Cardinals will need to keep producing right through to the end of the MLB season in order to have a shot at winning the 2009 World Series. Sitting in the middle of the pack of the NL with a .257 team average at the plate, the St. Louis Cardinals will likely need to improve their team bats in order to contend for a playoff spot. Pitching in St. Louis has been solid this season as the Cardinals sit in the top 5 in team ERA in the NL with a very respectable 3.93. With sluggers like Albert Pujuols, Chris Duncan and Ryan Ludwick, manager Tony La Rusa knows he has the power to reach this years playoffs. As far as pitching goes, ace Chris Carpenter and closer turned starter Adam Wainwright are having solid seasons and will give the Cardinals the innings needed to be a post-season contender. Look for the Cardinals to compete with the Milwaukee Brewers and Chicago Cubs for the NL Central title, and if not earn a wild card spot in the NL.
At the time of writing this article, the St. Louis Cardinals’ odds of winning the 2009 World Series sit at +1200. If you are unsure of what these odds mean, basically a $100 bet on the St. Louis Cardinals to win the 2009 World Series would pay $1300 if won. Do not count the 2006 world champs out of contention for this years ultimate prize. Only a half-game back in the tight NL Central, the St. Louis Cardinals have proven in the past that they have the steady hitting and pitching needed to win a championship. With Albert Pujols surrounded by young power, and a steady pitching staff lead by ace Chris Carpenter, it would not surprise me if the St. Louis Cardinals win the NL Central or take a wild card spot on their road to the 2009 World Series. As the season progresses, these odds may lower due to the Cardinals ability to take a run at a World Series like we learned in previous years.
