1.5 units on St. Louis -200 (moneyline) (risk 1.5 to return 2.25) RESULT: WIN
A tough road trip for Atlanta continues, a team ranked 23rd in runs scored. The Braves are on a 3-9 run, 0-6 on the road. They turn their lonely eyes to Shelby Miller, but Atlanta is 0-6 in his last six starts. His last two starts, he's allowed 15 hits and 8 runs in 11 innings. While Atlanta is on a 5-16 run on the road, St. Louis has the best home record in baseball. The Cardinals sit atop the NL Central, and despite owning a league-leading 2.35 bullpen ERA, snagged ace reliever Steve Cishek yesterday. The Cardinals are 50-15 in their last 65 home games. Cardinals flame-throwing righty Carlos Martinez (10-4, 2.51 ERA) is an ace, and the team is 7-2 in his last nine starts with a 1.37 ERA with more than three times the strikeouts (78) as walks (25). The Cardinals are 19-5 in Martinez's last 24 starts, including 15-2 when he is a favorite. The Braves are 3-8 against the Cards, 2-6 in this park, and the home team holds all the cards. Play St. Louis.
