How To Win At NL Central Betting

The NL Central is always a tough division to predict which team will come out on top. The Cardinals have won the division 10 times and are always a favorite to come out of the NL Central. However, the Chicago Cubs have positioned themselves to be a powerhouse for many years to come. After winning the 2016 World Series, the Cubs will only get better — especially considering the club has one of the best pitching staffs in baseball.

The Cubs were remarkable on home soil in 2016, posting a 57-24 record at Wrigley Field. The 2016 champs were equally impressive on the road with a 46-34 record. Chicago also recorded a league-best +252 run differential during the 2016 campaign — driving in 808 while only surrendering 612.

On the mound is where the Cubs will excel. A 3.15 team ERA led the National League in 2016 as the Cubs’ rotation finished with 100 quality starts — a stat that recognizes a starting pitcher that completes at least six innings while allowing three runs or less. 

National League Central contests tend to be high-scoring affairs, especially if top clubs like the Cubs and Cardinals are taking on weaker teams in the division.
