4 units on St. Louis -1.5 runs +178 (runline) (risk 4 to return 4) RESULT: LOSS
While Ben Sheets is a top pitcher, the Brewers started out 5-0 in his first five starts, but the results have not been impressive since. The Brew Crew has been just 10-10 in his last 20 starts. The count is worse when he faces a winning team, where they are just 4-6. Sheets has spent more than his share of time on the disabled list, and his innings have reached a point higher than any year since 2004. It has led to a fading ERA of 4.36 over his last five starts. Todd Wellemeyer has pitched great over his last five starts, not allowing more than three runs in any of them, while pitching to a 2.48 ERA in the process. The Cards get the runline call here.
