National League $$$ Power Poll


MLB BETTING – National League $$$ Power Poll

With the Atlanta Braves getting the best of the World Series Champion Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday night, the NL 2009 MLB betting season has begun and the following entails the league’s body of work for sports bettors last season….

1) Houston Astros (86-75, +$2138 in 2008) No one saw Houston’s surge in the second half of the season coming, but that push was good enough to have the Astros on the backs of the Brewers and Mets until the final week of the season. Sports betting fanatics had a field day backing the ‘Stros last year. That said; aside from Roy Oswalt, there just isn’t anything to write home about in this starting rotation.

2) Florida Marlins (84-77, +$2004 in 2008) The Fish did a tremendous job of sticking around in the NL East picture all season, and ended up rewarding baseball bettors with a fantastic season. They’ve been in the Top Five in money in two of the L/3 seasons and could be a force to be reckoned with again this season. SP Ricky Nolasco was the best money pitcher a year ago, but don’t rest on Josh Johnson or Chris Volstad, for that matter. Both were in the Top 15, and both could be names to watch again this season.

3) Chicago Cubs (97-64, +$1545 in 2008) When you can consistently find a way to win as many games as the Cubs have in the last decade or so, it’s easy to figure out why sports bettors are consistently winning. The rest of the NL Central just isn’t as good as the Cubbies are, so expect to see a whole mess of wins for the boys in red, white, and blue again this summer.

4) St. Louis Cardinals (86-76, +$987 in 2008) A squad managed by Tony LaRussa can’t ever be counted out. Without his key cogs of the pitching staff proving to be mostly ineffective, the Redbirds grizzled manager still found a way to win 86 games. St. Louis will be one of these teams that could be floating around going into September, but it’s going to take another mammoth year from 1B Albert Pujols.

5) Milwaukee Brewers (90-72, +$589 in 2008) Thanks to the animal that was CC Sabathia, the Brew Crew made a run into the playoffs. Now, not only is Sabathia gone, but so are all of the prospects that were dealt in order to acquire the hefty-lefty. Ken Macha has his work cut out for him, but the good news is that the entire lineup is still intact from a year ago.

6) Philadelphia Phillies (92-70, +$406 in 2008) After years and years of misery, the City of Brotherly Love finally found its long-awaited championship. It wasn’t the greatest season in the world for sports bettors, but at least it was a season in the black. The competition in the NL East will be stiff once again, so a similar season may be considered a success.

7) San Francisco Giants (72-90, -$245 in 2008) The Giants looked to be one of the worst sides in the majors for the majority of the season, but closed out the season on a decent run to nearly get back to even on the season. SP Randy Johnson claimed that this team was good enough to win the division this year, but baseball bettors aren’t buying it having pushed their win total from 82 down to 79.5 going into Monday’s season/home opener against Milwaukee.

8) New York Mets (89-73, -$541 in 2008) The Mets underachieved once again in their final season in Shea Stadium, and as a result, sports betting aficionados had their second straight losing season. Once again last year, the Mets bullpen was atrocious but the additions of JJ Putz and Francisco Rodriguez should help that matter out. If not, expect to hear a lot of boo birds raining down in New York’s brand new shiny new stadium.

And the rest…

9) Los Angeles Dodgers (84-78, -$829 in 2008)

10) Pittsburgh Pirates (67-95, -$1096 in 2008)

11) Cincinnati Reds (74-88, -$1492 in 2008)

12) Arizona Diamondbacks (82-80, -$1528 in 2008)

13) Colorado Rockies (74-88, -$2099 in 2008)

14) Atlanta Braves (72-90, -$2315 in 2008)

15) Washington Nationals (59-102, -$2342 in 2008)

16) San Diego Padres (63-99, -$3782 in 2008)
