March is right around the corner and with less than a month away, early MLB betting favors the Washington Nationals in 2013 NL pennant odds to win the division. With P Stephan Strasburg making his return to the mound since being shut down last September, Vegas bookmakers have listed the Nationals as 15/4 favorites to win the National league title followed by the Los Angeles Dodgers at 4/1, the Cincinnati Reds at 6/1 with the Atlanta Braves and San Francisco Giants at 7/1. The Philadelphia Phillies and St. Louis Cardinals are 8/1 and 9/1 longshots to win the NL.
Washington are deserving favorites having owned the regular season in 2012 winning 98-games and the National League East. However the squad fell to the Cardinals 2-3 in the series for the NL divisional championship leaving the squad wondering what could have been. Manager Don Mattingly and the Los Angeles Dodgers are the second wagering choice in 2013 NL pennant odds at 4/1 but will need to count on OF Matt Kemp and LF Carl Crawford to successfully recover from surgeries if the squad is to last through the postseason. The Cincinnati Reds could offer a profitable MLB betting option at 6/1 with perhaps one of the strongest reliever rotations in the National League which includes P Manny Parra and Sean Marshall.
The Atlanta Braves are the fourth wagering choice in NL pennant odds for 2013 at 7/1 but will rely heavily on pitcher Kris Medlen to boost a young starting rotation that consists of top prospects Julio Teheran and Sean Gilmartin. Rounding out the top five selections to win the National League are the San Francisco Giants who have also been listed at 7/1. P Matt Cain and C Buster Posey will return looking to make a triumphant run at the postseason once again after sweeping the Detroit Tigers for the world series title last year. Following the Phillies and Cardinals as longshots to win the NL, the Milwaukee Brewers are 18/1 and the Arizona Diamondbacks are 25/1.
