Dodgers vs. Cardinals On TV: ESPN
Los Angeles Dodgers (Zack Greinke) +142
St. Louis Cardinals (Adam Wainwright) -147
There is absolutely no denying the fact that RHP Adam Wainwright has been flat out awesome this year. This is a man that is 13-6, and he has led the team to a 15-8 record in his 23 starts on the season. The Cardinals are one of the best teams in the bigs, and they have to be happy to be back at home after a brutal 11-game road trip in which they went just 3-8 in games that all came against contenders in the National League. However, perhaps what we are finding out about St. Louis is that it just isn’t as good as it is cracked up to be. The team is good against the teams that it should beat, but come playoff time, perhaps Manager Mike Matheny and the gang should be worried. The Dodgers just haven’t cared who they have been facing. They are flat out awesome right now, as they have won 31-of-38 games to storm to a huge lead in the NL West. RHP Zack Greinke is on the mound, and it is easy to forget that he has led the Dodgers to wins in 13 of his 17 starts this year. This is a man with a 3.43 ERA on the season, and it is a man who has allowed a total of just seven runs in his last five starts combined. Giving us a +142 price on the MLB odds is just insane on a team that is playing as well as this one is.
