The trading deadline is just about here, and the teams that are the hottest in the National League are the ones who really should be making the moves at this point. Though each of the five best money teams in the game are all in the American League, we'll be taking a look at the top teams in the NL for bettors in pro baseball betting action.

Miami Marlins (53-53, +$540) – The Fish are still living just a bit on what they did at the outset of this season at home. All of their profits are from games played at Marlins Park, and their +$547 mark here at home is a fraction of what they were up when they started off like gangbusters in South Beach. That being said, this young pitching staff really is coming together, and it's only going to get better when left-handed pitcher Andrew Heaney really figures it out and is set to become the stud that we know he can be. All of these prospects that have been put together in trades over the years are finally coming together, and though this probably isn't the year the Marlins will make the playoffs, they can legitimately finish right here as a .500 team with a solid last two months of the season.

Pittsburgh Pirates (57-49, +$513)
– The Bucs are starting to get sneaky at the trade deadline, and we wonder if they are ultimately going to end up making a big move that could change the course of how the National League playoff race ends up looking. When outfielder Starling Marte and right-handed pitcher Gerrit Cole both come back from the disable list, this really might end up being the best team in the NL, and that's saying something, especially in the crowded NL Central. The reason why the Pirates are going to be a decent bet all year long is because they don't have any of those "name pitchers" who are always the big time favorites every time they get on the bump. Pittsburgh should continue to trend upwards, and we would be surprised if it wasn't one of the best five teams in baseball from a betting perspective at season's end.

Milwaukee Brewers (59-49, +$447) – The Brewers were once the best money team in the league, and though they have had a bit of a plight, they have still hung in there and would be in the playoffs if they started today. It's a heck of an accomplishment for a club with no really bona fide ace pitchers and bats that have generally overachieved as we see it. Our concern? The team has scored just two runs in its last three games combined, and it has three road games against the Cardinals coming up here over the weekend. There is a real chance that the schedule is going to end up getting the best of this team by October, and that will probably see the Brewers left out of the postseason dance when it's all said and done with.
