Score: 8 - 4
Money Line: +106 St. Louis
The St. Louis Cardinals look like good value here when they visit the Milwaukee Brewers for the opener of a three-game series.
The Brew Crew hand the ball to Zach Davies. He was 17-9 with a 3.90 ERA overall last season but posted a bloated 5.82 ERA in 17 starts home at Miller Park.
Davies will pitch opposite Miles Mikolas who is 2-5 with a 6.44 ERA in 10 career starts in the major leagues (all in 2014), but he has spent the last three seasons pitching in Japan, compiling a dominant 31-13 record behind a 2.18 ERA.
"You can't deny the success that he had in Japan, and I'm hoping that he just stays with his strengths because this isn't Japan," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. "But hitters are hitters, and he was able to get some good hitters out over there and we know that that plays here."
Last year the Cardinals were 5-4 at Miller Park, where they are 33-14 since the start of the 2012 season.
8* play on St. Louis Cardinals.
