Baseball betting line action features a great NL baseball gambling matchup between the Mets and Cardinals from St. Louis. Baseball betting line handicappers have been disappointed as usual in the Mets while the Cardinals were off to a solid start to the baseball gambling season.
The probable starting pitchers to be listed on the baseball betting line will be right hander John Maine of the Mets and right hander Adam Wainwright of the Redbirds. Maine got off to a terrible start this baseball gambling season as he was 0-1 with a 7.20 earned run average in 2 starts. Wainwright was just the opposite against the baseball betting line as in his first 3 starts he was 2-0 with a 3.31 earned run average. Maine has not had a lot of success against the baseball betting line versus St. Louis with a 5.63 lifetime earned run average while Wainwright has just 2 innings pitched in his career versus New York.
The New York Mets beat the baseball betting line in 6 out of their first 11 starts but were operating in the red versus the money line because they are usually a popular team on the board which means that they are also an expensive team. The Mets have gotten solid pitching to begin the year as they ranked 7th in the majors for earned run average. Their lineup has been inconsistent against the baseball betting line, however, and ranked just 17th. Carlos Delgado led the attack with a .310 average along with 3 home runs and 13 runs batted in.
The St. Louis Cardinals won 8 out of their first 13 games against the baseball betting line with 9 of those games going over the total. The Cardinals caught a lot of grief from their fans and local media in the off season for what was perceived to be a lack of roster improvement but so far they have quieted their critics, at least for the immediate. Ryan Ludwick got off to a great start against the baseball betting line with a .405 average along with 5 home runs and 13 runs batted in.
