While the Milwaukee Brewers and St. Louis Cardinals get much of the credit for NL Central division’s prestige, they’re not the only clubs capable of dealing damage in 2014. This weekend both the Cincinnati Reds and Pittsburgh Pirates will collide, showing what the other contenders are made of.
The Cincinnati Reds are 25/1 to win the World Series
. That’s not bad for a team that, on paper, isn’t even second in its own division. Ranked third behind the aforementioned Brewers and Cardinals, the Reds are still a solid contender in a competitive division.
Trailing division leader Milwaukee by just 2.5 games, anything can happen for Cincinnati. This weekend they’ll face a test with the Pirates who sit just two games behind them. With four contenders separated by a total of 4.5 games, and two wild card berths available in the National League, there will be a heated race down the stretch.
Naturally, both critics and MLB betting experts alike will be eager to see Pittsburgh and Cincinnati in action against one another. Think you know how the NL Central will unfold?
