Big game to help determine the fate of the NL Wild Cards is the Cardinals Giants tonight at 10:15 PM. Great to be in the home stretch as NFL football is here also tonight at HRWager. Baseball is winding down so when we get two above average starters with plenty of reference stats for the entire season, we are going to hop on the train to profitville. Combine that with the Giants worst 20-35 record since the All-Star break and it was amazing to see the ML on this one! Where did it open and which side has the best value for this key game on Thursday, September 15th at HRWager?
Cardinals Giants : Both Starters
Middle of the road in their last three starts are both Wainwright and Cueto. If anything, Adam of St. Louis has been performing a tad bit better in terms of better WHIP to ERA considerations. Note is that this is thin. Combine that with Saint Louis having a mysterious 43-28 record on the road gives one pause to ponder the line. Oddsmakers set the price at the -150 level on the Giants as a home favorite. Sharps have not budged this line an inch in the game.
Lackey Effect : CY Young Award Winner?!
So what does a Chiacgo Cub have to do with our pick? Lackey absolutely owned the Cardinals in the day getaway game in St. Louis. This is the result of his wonderful form going in and that he is on a very short list to win the CY Young for the National League. Pit that against the Giants who got swept at home by the Padres. Not only that but the SF bats were silent. Used to be that the Giants could not come back from trailing in the 9th but now they can not even jump out in front at any time as of late.
Cueto and his contract was brought in to stop situations like this from unraveling for the Giants. Wainwright has been his equal or tad bit better in the last three games. ML for Cards is +140 level. Our MLB Free Pick of the Day is for value on St. Louis to win. Good fortune and we will see you later today here at HRWager.
