The St. Louis Cardinals and the Los Angeles Dodgers will meet on Wednesday for game three of their series from St. Louis. All MLB odds can be found at Top Bet Sportsbook.
The Cardinals dropped the opener of the series but rebounded yesterday with a win. They scored eight runs on eight hits in all and Adam Wainwright had another solid outing over seven innings of work. Tonight the Cardinals will start Kyle Lohse who has won four decisions in a row. For the season Lohse has just allowed 120 hits in 129 innings of work good enough for 2.71 ERA.
The Dodgers looked to be on our way to another win on Tuesday but that didn’t happen in the end. Clayton Kershaw had a rare rough outing on the mound and tonight the Dodgers will look to Aaron Harang to secure a series win. Harang has allowed 106 hits in 112 innings of work so far this season.
St. Louis is 6-1 in their last seven home games, 7-2 in their last nine games against the NL West, and 4-1 in Lohse’s last five starts. Los Angeles is 4-1 in their last five road games, 5-1 in their last six games against a team with a winning record, and 7-3 in Harang’s last 10 starts as an underdog. Los Angeles is 9-24 in the last 33 meetings of these two in St. Louis.
We actually like what Lohse has done all season and Harang’s numbers are better than we thought. Because of this give us the under for total runs scored in this game at online sportsbook usa.
