Money Line: -139 St. Louis
4* MLB SMASH on Cardinals -139
The Cards have dominated the D-backs. They are 7-0 in the last 7 meetings and 4-0 in the last 4 meetings at home. I fully expect these trends to be extended with Lohse (2.72 ERA) on the hill.
The Cardinals are 5-0 in Lohse's last 5 home starts and 6-0 in his last 6 starts as a favorite of -110 to -150. It also can't be overlooked that the Diamondbacks are 0-5 in their last 5 games vs. a right-handed starter.
The D-backs have dropped each of Cahill's last 2 starts and his ERA is over a run higher than Lohse's on the season. Let's cash in with the Cards.
