It’s all come down to a game 7 for the Rangers and Cardinals. We’re going to take a brief look at the factors that will enable the Cardinals to win tonight’s game and take the series. Betting odds are taken from Bodog.
The World Series is finally here, though not with the teams most expected to be here. Texas, sure, fair game, they had great odds for the series, but the Cards were heavy underdogs to even get past their opening opponent in the Phillies. We’ll take a look here at what this series could bring, by utilizing a position by position analysis. All betting odds come from Bodog.
The series stays in Saint Louis, and is now tied 2-2. A win by Saint Louis tonight would put Milwaukee’s backs against the wall, needing to win two straight at home to make it through to the World Series. We’ll take a look at who might prevail in this crucial game five
The Cardinals fought back in Game 2 to even the NLCS series at a game a piece. The Cardinals will now send the depricated Chris Carpenter to the mound, the victim of some harsh words by Zach Greinke. We’ll see if Yovani Gallardo is enough to counter a focused and peeved Chris Carpenter. If Carpenter really does the things that Greinke accused him of (prodding batters verbally, yelling at them, in displays of intimidation), he will be doing them even more so tonight. It’s all ready been established these teams have bad blood with one another, which was why the umpire’s warning to both sides following a beaned batter was more significant than any old warning.
In the Series preview, I advocated both a series bet on Milwaukee and to bet the ‘over’ on Game 1. We’ll take a look at the lines for Game 2 and consider how the Cardinals need to adjust if they want to make this a series.
