After the St. Louis Cardinals fans lost starting pitchers Michael Wacha and Jaime Garcia to shoulder problems in late June, the club fell out of the favored position to win the National League Central Division for the first time this season.
As the Cardinals continued on their sometimes frustrating, but steady pace since, they still made their way back up in August. They strengthened the position by September 1 as the Brewers have hit a very bad stretch, including seven consecutive losses to fall two games behind the Cards in the division standings.
The new odds from bovada.lv reflect that.
While there has been little change in the last month across the NL, the surging Angels have displaced the Athletics at the top of the Junior Circuit list and are the new World Series favorite as well. The Dodgers remain the NL pennant pick.
