According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Cardinals are -169 money line home favorites for tonight’s game against the visiting Red Sox, who are +156 money line underdogs. The total for tonight’s 7:15PM ET start time is currently sitting at 7.5 runs.

Tonight’s pitching matchup will feature Brandon Workman versus Adam Wainwright, the ace of the Cardinals’ staff who is coming off a rough outing against the Brewers in his last start. Wainwright is 13-6 on the year and owns a 2.26 ERA, but he’s been roughed up in two of his last three starts. Workman, meanwhile, is 1-4 with a 4.08 ERA on the year and has never faced St. Louis.

The under is 4-0 in the last four meetings in St. Loiuis and 4-0-1 in the last five meetings overall, including the last two nights when the Cardinals won 3-2 on Tuesday and the Red Sox returned the favor with a 2-1 win last night. The under is also 5-0 in Workman’s last five starts versus a team with a winning record, 4-1 in his last five starts as an underdog and 4-0 in the Red Sox’ last four road games.

On the other side, the under is 8-2-1 in the Cardinals’ last 11 interleague games, 7-1 in their last eight interleague games versus a right-handed starter and 7-2 in their lsat nine games versus AL East opponents. The under is also 17-8-2 in the Cards’ last 27 home games, 5-1-2 in Wainwright’s last eight starts versus a team with a losing record and 11-3-3 in his last 17 starts as a favorite of between -151 and -200.
