3 units on St. Louis -133 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
Joel Pineiro has apparently resurrected his career in St. Louis. He cam up with Seattle and dominated at the start, but then fizzled and was tossed around, but has found a home in St. Louis. Pineiro has really dominated this Pirate lineup as he is 3-0 with a 1.74 ERA against them. Pineiro had a shaky first outing in '08, but has pitched to a 2.73 ERA in his last five, and the Cards have won four straight with him on the hill. Ian Snell won 14 games in '06 and has regressed since then. The Pirates remain a liability to their backers on the road where they have cashed just 7 of 20, while the Cards have been impressive at home with a 15-8 mark. Lots of value on the Cards here and we will back them on their way to another home win.
