Although in general I don't think sales correspond to quality, I think Justice League is selling less than Batman nowadays due to writing quality (or lack of) of Justice League itself. Batman was outsold by Justice League during the launch of the New 52 line, and continued consistently bellow it up to march 2012. Starting from April, it has been continuously outselling Justice League. I think that change over is clearly reflecting the satisfaction of the readers' with each title. JL's writing, in spite of having a bigger name, apparently doesn't seem to be satisfying as many readers, and its position in relation to Batman changing after a few months shows that pretty clearly, I think.
Personally, I think the writing of JL has been too... average and not fitting the title. People might complain about Snyder hyping his Batman stories every time, but, really, that's what the JL title should be. Every story that should feel like a big event, but the current incarnation (and many of the recent ones too) just hasn't been able to do that.

I think it has been mostly because a combination of factors
1. Batman has constantly been praise as a quality read, Justice League has not.
2. Snyder and Capullo made this one of those books were the writing and the art are both top notch.
3. Jim Lee stepping out for a few issues.
I still enjoying Geof on Green Lantern & Aquaman, so I dont know why the quality of his writing is lower on JL (my opinion).
It's been touched on by a couple people, but the marketing train is really rolling for Batman and very few other titles. Snyder is a press hound - not judging, just saying - and does what feels like an interview every day. He is also very active on Twitter and does the classic "Things are just getting started!" "My best issues are yet to come!" "Batman has a secret!" that gets people hyped up and excited
And even though I'm not a fan of the book, it's definitely better than Justice League.
