5* Best Bet
(MLB) St. Louis vs. LA Dodgers, 10/14/2013 4:07 PM, Score: 0 - 3
Money Line: -118.00 St. Louis (Away)
Result: Loss
Taking the CARDS here. I said on my Thursday night podcast that I thought LAD would win this series. Well, I couldn't have been further from the truth. I underestimating what I had as the Cards clear edge in their series vs the Pirates. They are a play-off tested, veteran led club that wins October baseball games. Wacca and tonight's starter Adam Wainwright have been as good or better than Kershaw and Greinke this postseason. Wainwright only posting a 1.13 ERA in his 2 starts with 15 strikeouts in 16 innings with just 1 walk. Those numbers translate into a .196 BA against and a .75 WHIP. Add in that the Dodgers haven't been hitting the ball and the fact that Hanley and Either might not be playing and this is a bad spot for LA. Dodgers batted .184 in the first two games on the road, including 1 for 16 (.063) with runners in scoring position. STL can really put the hammer down here and go up 3-0. 5* Best Bet STL CARDS
