Betting On National League Central Online

When you talk about the National League Central Division, the discussion must include tradition, historic significance and romantic attachments. Some of baseball’s most famous teams play in this division, as does the defending World Series champion, the Chicago Cubs. Towns rich in baseball history are part of this group. The Cubs were a charter National League franchise in 1876. The Pittsburgh Pirates (1887), Cincinnati Reds (1890) and St. Louis Cardinals (1892) all became part of the loop before 1900. [+]

Although the Milwaukee Brewers joined the group from the American League, Milwaukee was home of the Braves from 1953-65, before the team moved to Atlanta, so the city is well versed in National League baseball.

Long before there was a National League Central Division, National League Central teams were already baseball powerhouses.

The Pittsburgh Pirates played in the first World Series in 1903 and won the Fall Classic in 1909. By 1926, the Chicago Cubs (1907-08), Cincinnati Reds (1919) and St. Louis Cardinals (1926) were also World Series champions.

Only the Milwaukee Brewers, who lost their lone World Series appearance in 1982, are without a World Series title among the National League Central teams. But their predecessors in the town, the Milwaukee Braves, did beat the New York Yankees in the 1957 World Series.

What Are The Current National League Central Standings

The National League Central Division standings are right here and if you look closely, they will tell you a story. The NL Central has proven to be one of the most competitive divisions. [+]

Four of the five teams have won the division title since baseball realigned to six divisions in 1994, led by the St. Louis Cardinals with 10 titles. Only the Pittsburgh Pirates have never won a National League Central pennant but the Pirates are a three-time wildcard playoff team.

Since realignment, the Cardinals and Cubs are the only current National League Central teams to win the World Series, and are in fact the only current National League Central clubs to play in the Fall Classic since 1994.

National League Central History 

There are a number of quirky occurrences involving National League Central Division teams. Before realignment put them in the same division, the Pittsburgh Pirates and Cincinnati Reds met four times in the National League Championship Series between 1970-79.

The Reds (two) and Pirates (two) were the only National League teams to win the World Series during the 1970s. The Chicago Cubs had lost four National League Championship Series in a row since 1984 before finally winning it all in 2016.

Two National League Central Division teams actually met for the World Series, something of which no other current Major League Baseball division can boast. In 1982, the St. Louis Cardinals defeated the Milwaukee Brewers, then an American League club, in an exciting seven-game Fall Classic.

The Brewers moved to the National League in 1998 and were placed in the National League Central Division.
