Phillies, Mets, Marlins Deadlock in NL East Provides Much Betting Value

With only 2 ½ games separating the Phillies, Mets and Marlins in the National League East, this is anyone's to take and that reflects in the odds, which have Philadelphia promising a payout of $425 for every $100 bet to win the National League Pennant; the Marlins paying $790 and the Mets paying $685 (all at BetOnline.com).

Only the Chicago Cubs - with 71 wins and around 2/1 odds of winning the NL - and the Milwaukee Brewers (+500 odds to win) have better records. St. Louis does as well but they will have to duke it out with both the Cubs and Brewers. This scenario is also reflected in the odds that has the Cardinals listed at +900 for a payout potential of $900 on every $100 bet.

Despite the Cubs dominance, they still were promising a descent size payout if Chicago were to win the NL. Bet $1000, you could win $2000 as an example of the potential pay day. Of course, the Cubs have been down on their luck for 100 years now.
