Gambling on the Cardinals


So I was looking at my sportbook's lines for the 2012 baseball season, and I was a bit surprised at what the over/under for wins by the Cardinals was listed at. In fact, I went ahead and bet $100 on them to beat their prediction, so I will be rooting extra hard this year.

What do you think a fair over/under for Cardinals win would be? I will tell you the gambling site's number after the jump ....

83.5 was the number, so I bet $100 on them to win at least 84 games.

Seems like we should be about the same as last year, with addition of Wainright & subtraction of Frankista balancing out the downgrade from Pujols to Beltran. Still have the Astros to beat up on for one more year as well.

Also interesting, Cards were only 3rd most likely to win the NL Central per the betting odds. Cardinals were at +250, trailing the Reds at +150 and the Brewers at +200.

Maybe I am too optimistic, but I really feel like we are the favorites to win the division, or maybe co-favorites with the Reds. With the expanded playoffs, I really think we should make the playoffs again barring any major disasters.
