MLB Thursday

49-32 +22,450

Pittsburgh Pirates at St Louis Cardinals
This is what the NL Central will come down to the Bucks vs the Cards. So far the Bucks have the advantage, but I wouldn't count the Red Birds out. On the last game of this series the Pirates will send AJ Burnett 5-8 tough luck pitcher with 2.95 ERA, team record of 9-12, road record of 2-8. He is coming off a non quality loss in Colorado after completing a 9 inning 1 run win at home against the same team.  Normally I would suggest a bounce back here on sea level, but that has not been the case this season as indicated by the team record. Lance Lynn has also been having problems getting the "W" despite pitching 4 straight quality games. His overall game in last 10 starts have gone 4-6 dropping some heavy favorites at more than -200 making Lynn backers little gun shy is a understatement. However Lynn 8-2 at home with Cardinals going 9-3. Lynn 12-3 following a Cardinals loss, 9-2 following Cardinals scoring 2 runs or less.  The Cardinals 12-4 with Lynn favored, 21-6 when Lynn faces NL Central rivals. The Pirates 4-11 with Burnett as a under dog. Take St Louis.

ST LOUIS CARDINALS -115 for 1 unit(W)
