The long road to October has begun in the bigs, as 30 teams with high hopes of being the next team to be a part of the Fall Classic have started their journeys.

There can only be so many winners in MLB betting action though, and today, we're looking at the top teams out of the gate in the National League.

San Francisco Giants (24-14, +$1,053)
– Pitching wins championships. The Giants know that better than any other team in the game, as they have picked up victories in the Fall Classic because of their arms. This year though, it's not the starting pitching which is really doing it for San Francisco. Tim Lincecum has only posted a 5.55 ERA, while Matt Cain only has a 4.25 ERA and has yet to win his first game. Granted, Tim Hudson has been a fantastic pickup and could be set to win at least 15 games on the campaign, and Madison Bumgarner has once again put up a great season. It's the bullpen though, that has really been great. Sergio Romo has 12 saves in 13 tries this year, and Jean Machi has a 0.49 ERA and five wins out of the pen. Even when you look at this lineup, there are a lot of good bats here, and if guys like Angel Pagan (.314/.443/.805) and Michael Morse (.273/.537/.843) can continue to light it up at the plate, good things are going to continue for the boys by the Bay.
 
Milwaukee Brewers (24-14, +$1,048) – There isn't a better story right now in baseball than the Brew Crew. Francisco Rodriguez closed out his first 15 games and made it through his first 19 appearances without giving up a run, but he hasn't been the only man in this bullpen who has been virtually perfect. Will Smith has a 0.52 ERA in 17.1 innings of work, while Zach Duke has allowed just three runs in 17.1 innings of work as well. All of the starters have at least show some promise, and short of Matt Garza, all of the starters have ERAs of 3.53 or better. That's how you win lots of games. We can only imagine what this team is going to look like when Ryan Braun comes off of the DL after a freak injury suffered two weeks ago.
 
Colorado Rockies (23-17, +$587) – The Rocks are 13-5 at home this year, and they are really taking advantage of what Coors Field has to offer them. Offensively, this team is just insane at the moment, and it's because Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki are going bananas. As a team, Colorado is batting .302 with an OPS of .855. The team has 57 home runs and is averaging 5.75 runs per game. However, we have to remember that this is a team which historically has a lousy pitching staff. All those great numbers this time of year should probably yield better than a 23-17 record through 40 games. If there is a team amongst these three which could fall, this is the one we would be most wary of.
