How To Win At St Louis Cardinals Betting
It is difficult to bet against a team that had such an impressive regular season in 2015, especially when they should see the return of Adam Wainwright from injury, and a mixture of experience and youth among their ranks.
The signing of Korean reliever Seung-hwan Oh is a good one; Oh led the Japan Central League in saves for two consecutive seasons, plus the Cardinals welcome back Matt Adams and Matt Holiday from injury ravaged seasons.
However, those two returning players both need to be firing on all cylinders and be able to keep fit if they are going to account for the 35-40 home runs as they did in 2013 and 2014. Holliday is 36-years-old now and only played 73 games in 2015.
It also remains to be seen how the Cardinals’ outfield will cope with the losses of Jon Jay, Peter Bourjos, and Jason Heyward.
If you’re looking to bet on the Cardinals, it may be best to place wagers on individual games rather than season-long bets as the word is this roster will not deal with a flurry of injuries to key personnel as well as it would have done a season or two ago.
