Here is Pete’s play for today.
Cardinals @ Cubs
Tonight the Cardinals (+141) and the Cubs (-150) will play the first game of the second half of this MLB season at Wrigley, all players fresh off the All-Star Break. On the mound for the Cubs is Kyle Hendricks, (6-8) with a 3.92 ERA. Note that in 8 of his 29 starts, the Cubs bats have scored just ONE run, providing no help. On the other side, Carlos Martinez takes the mound for St. Louis, (6-5) with a 3.08 ERA. He has been on fire as of recently, winning his last 3 starts, including 44 K’s in 40 innings.
The public money is on Chicago because of Martinez’s 4-4 record and 4.45 ERA against Chicago. The O/U sits at 9.5 right now at (-110) odds. After this past week’s rest, I like the bats to be hot on both sides tonight, especially off of Hendricks. I believe there is a ton of value on this Cardinals team with an interim manager and a fresh start, especially with Martinez throwing Heat night in and night out.
* Cardinals F5 +0.5 (-110)
* Cardinals / Cubs o9.5 (-110)
BOL to all, let’s cash these 💵.
