3 units on St. Louis PICK runs +134 (runline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
Houston goes for the series sweep but we don't think it's going to happen. While they have been slumping of late, the Cards own the NL's best road record and they are bound to snap out of this at some point. They look to Todd Wellemeyer to end the road skid and this guy is 11-5 with a 3.87 ERA on the season. He's 4-0 with a 3.01 ERA on the road and has a 2.89 ERA over his last three starts. If he can keep Houston's bats in check, the Cards should win here as the run support should be there (Puljos batting .532 over the last dozen games and St. Louis averaging 5.2 runs per game on the road). St. Louis is 44-23 vs. the run line this season on the road. Wandy Rodriguez is just 3-11 in August games on the run line the past three seasons and 13-23 on the run line vs. division foes. He's also jsut 1-9 vs. the run line over that span vs. teams batting .275 or better! We'll take St. Louis on the run line here to avoid the sweep.
