Result: Win

This is an 8* play on ST. LOUIS +1.5

Needless to say, this series has gone a lot differently for the Cardinals than the one where they hosted the Dodgers back in April. We can't say we're surprised by that. After all, we did win with the Dodgers on Monday. Tuesday's game was another win for LA, this time 3-1, as they improved to 76-40 overall and 45-15 at home. When these clubs met back in April, the series was in St. Louis and the Cards won all four games. Now they are just trying to avoid getting swept. Taking them +1.5 on the run line today seems like a good call to us. The Dodgers are great, but they've got a weak starter going this afternoon in Dustin May, who has made just one prior start (last week) and it didn't go too well with the team losing 5-2 to San Diego. Jack Flaherty threw seven shutout innings of one-hit ball his last start as he continues to be lights out for the Cardinals. Flaherty's last five starts have seen him give up a total of just four runs in 31 1/3 innings on only 15 hits. He hasn't allowed more than two runs in any of the five starts and four of them have seen him allow 0 or 1. So getting an extra run and a half here seems like a nice deal. Play ST. LOUIS +1.5 (RUN LINE)
