The Colorado Rockies and the St. Louis Cardinals will meet for the final game of their series tonight. All MLB odds can be found at Bovada sportsbook.
The Cardinals could not get the bats going on Tuesday in a loss to the Rockies. Although Matt Holliday is a two run homerun the Cardinals could only amass two runs on nine hits. Tonight St. Louis will send Adam Wainwright to the mound who has lost two of his last three decisions. Wainwright will be looking to bounce back from a subpar season thus far in which he has posted a 4.75 ERA.
The Rockies were heavy underdog in the game yesterday, but came out victorious. Jeff Francis led the way on the mound allowing just five hits to notch his second win of the year. Today Colorado will start Jeremy Guthrie who has been dreadful this season pitching to a 6.56 ERA in 71 innings of work.
St. Louis is 5-2 in their last seven games against a team with a winning percentage below .400, 23-9 in their last 32 after scoring two or less runs in their previous game, and 4-9 in Wainwright’s last 13 home starts. Colorado is 4-7 in their last 11 road games, 8-19 in their last 27 games overall, and 1-5 in Guthrie’s last six starts. Colorado is 3-7 in their last 10 games in St. Louis.
St. Louis is a deserved big favorite in this game and we like Wainwright light-years better than Guthrie. Give us St. Louis as a moneyline favorite in this one at best online sportsbooks.
