2 units on St. Louis -120 (moneyline) (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: WIN
Give me Chris Carpenter at home and I'll take him every time. The Cards are 27-15 at home on the season, including 12-4 vs. winning teams. It also includes them being 5-0 vs. winning teams with Carpenter on the hill. Carpenter is 5-0 vs. the Dodgers for his career pitching to a 1.88 ERA. He has also pitched the Cards to a 41-11 mark for his career opening a series, while the Dodgers behind Kershaw are 2-10 opening a series. The Dodgers, after having at least one day off are also just 3-12 in their last 15. The Cards at 43-12 in Carpenter's last 55 starts at home, are worth a play here as he is 4-0 here vs. the Dodgers, and LA is 7-20 in their last 27 in St. Louis.
