I really like the Cards at home at this price given their success against the Braves, and more specifically Wainwright's success against them.
The St. Louis ace has turned it around since a slow start. The Cards have won his last two starts, and he has given up just 1 earned run in two of his last 3 starts.
Wainwright has been nothing short of dominant versus the Braves, going 6-0 with an ERA of 2.48 in 6 lifetime starts against them. The Cards have won those starts by an average of 5.8 runs.
The Braves have lost 6 of their last 8 overall versus the Cardinals and 7 of their 8 in St. Louis.
Beachy has been good for Atlanta but I like St. Louis' chances of getting to him. We're talking about a team batting .308 and scoring 6.9 runs/game at home. Take St. Louis.
