It seems as though every single week, the story stays exactly the same in the NL Central. The Pirates and Cardinals are sitting atop the division, and the Reds are just a shade back of the two of them. This is Cincinnati’s chance to get the job done and potentially threaten, not just to be in the lead in the NL Central, but perhaps to take over the best record in the whole National League with some help as well. Unfortunately, this series against St. Louis is going to be a nightmare, especially in Busch Stadium. The Cards have played their butts off over the course of the last few days, taking three out of four from the Atlanta Braves in fine fashion. The Reds do have a relatively favorable pitching matchup here, going against RHP Tyler Lyons, the weakest of the St. Louis starters, but we still aren’t buying in, even with RHP Mike Leake on the hill. Cincinnati is a 33-33 road team for a reason. In the Queen City, this is a much, much different story. Here in the Gateway to the West though, we have to stick with the Cards. They’ll find a way to win this one at home more often than not, putting the percentages on their side.

Reds @ Cardinals Pick 8/26/13: St. Louis Cardinals -106
Reds @ Cardinals Score Prediction: St. Louis 6 – Cincinnati 3
