Best NL Central Betting Sites

The NL Central has quickly become far and away the best division in baseball. The Pittsburgh Pirates, St. Louis Cardinals and Chicago Cubs have created an absolutely deadlocked division between three teams that would run away with any other division in baseball. All three teams boast superstar-filled lineups including Jake Arrieta, Adam Wainwright and Andrew McCutchen, just to name a few. In 2015 all three teams made the playoffs and it appears the Central may consume three playoff spots for years to come, making division titles even more important. [+]

As Pittsburgh appears to be steadying out and relying on wild card spots, the race is surely between St. Louis and Chicago for the division crown. The Cubs are on a roll since being  swept in the NLCS and St. Louis has proven that any year can be their year. The Cubs are the favorite to win the division and for good reason. They have taken the division by storm and it is hard to see Arrieta allowing the team to fall short of a division title if he continues to pitch at such a high level.

How To Win At NL Central Betting

To figure out how to win at betting on the NL Central is to follow three beasts, the Chicago Cubs the St. Louis Cardinals and the Pittsburgh Pirates. 

The past year saw a deadlocked group but it appears that Cy Young winner Jake Arrieta is only getting better, making him nearly impossible to beat. If the Cubs can mount an even better pitching staff this year then they will have what it takes to over take the Cardinals for the division, especially considering the talent they have at the plate.

Both the Cubs and the Cardinals had an identical record of 46-30 in the division last year and it seems that the divisional play will be the difference maker this season as well.
