3 units on St. Louis -116 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
The Cards have allowed the fewest runs of any team this season (104). They ahve won five of their six three-game series at home this season and they start Adam Wainwright who is 3-1 with a 2.79 ERA this season. This line isn't larger due to the Cubs' offensive success thus far but St. Louis certainly has the edge in this one. St. Louis is 12-6 at home and with Wainright pitching and a very solid bullpen to back him up (3.35 home ERA), this will be a tough one for the Cubs who are just 32-41 vs. winning teams under Lou Piniella.
