MLB Free Pick : Cardinals at Cubs 10/11
With a ML near the -250 mark, will our MLB Free Pick still be on Arrieta and the Cubs for Game Three of the NLDS. After all, the shutout in the wild card game came against the historically choking Pirates. St. Louis is another beast all together. We will see how Chicago does against Wacha and see if the RL is the play or should we parlay something with the Cubs!
The 6PM game features Michael Wacha whom has had legendary performances in playoffs past. This season he has an over six ERA and looked even worse against Chicago. Here are just a sampling of how some of them have done against Wacha. Rizzo and Castro are both 10 for 22 each with a combined four home runs against him. Even Braynt at third base has a double and triple against him. Only Montero has really struggled against him being 2 for 15. These numbers do not just go way because the playoffs have suddenly arrived.
Burned Their Game Four Starter
Not only has St. Louis get to face Arrieta in Game Three but St. Louis burned their starter for Game Four! Garica had to leave the second game due to a stomach ailment. Cardinals brought in Lance Lynn for an inning of work. He is projected to start on Tuesday but this is extremely risky. Who knows how damaging this is when we seem him but it can not be positive expectation for him.
Why risk the ML chalk of -255 or so? The RL is on the table for Game Three. Also the series price of -170 for the Cubs is great. Not only do you get Arrieta in that but the Cardinals game four pitching is now worse to wear. So whether you wager the series or the runline for Game Three on Chicago we wish you good fortune here at HRWager.
