St. Louis at Philadelphia

Tuesday 07/08 07:05 PM Eastern

3 units on St. Louis PICK runs -116 (runline) (risk 3 to return 3)  RESULT: WIN

This is a St. Louis team that has been a lot more competitive than most thought at the beginning of the year. They are 10 games over .500 and their road play has been superb of late as they are 15-9 on the road over their last 24. Joel Piniero has not been great, but 9 of his 13 starts, he has allowed 3 runs or less, and more than capeable of keeping the Cards in the game. This is a rough spot for the Phillies to be such heavy chalk as they have been just 7-14 over their last 21 games, and are currently in a 3 game losing streak. The offense has gone cold producing less than 4 runs a game over their last 18. The Phillies also have a tired bullpen, and when a team that starts a pitcher that strikes out more than 5 a game, that has a tired bullpen throwing 6+ innings in 2 straight games, they have been 10-30 at home vs the -1.5 runline. Bodes well for the Cards here so we will play them on the runline.
