Cubs @ Cards *4:05 EST
This play just missed out on our premium card. The Chicago Cubs and the St. Louis Cardinals continue their series on Saturday in a game that should be a great game for people who enjoy good pitching. I think the Cardinals have a little advantage on the mound, and why I back them. On the mound for the Cardinals is Michael Wacha who has pitched really well during the day this year. He has a record of 2-0 and an ERA of 1.93. He has pitched well in the National League Central as of late and I see that continuing in this game.
On the mound for the Cubs is Jon Lester. He has good stats this year but hasn’t been as dominant as last year so there will be opportunities for the Cardinals. Some trends to note. Cardinals are 5-1 in Wachas last 6 starts vs. National League Central. Cardinals are 7-1 in their last 8 Saturday games. Cubs are 1-4 in Lesters last 5 starts vs. National League Central. I think Wacha will be dominant in this game and that will be the difference.
Back the Cardinals.+100
