MLB FREE PICK: Take St. Louis. According to latest MLB trends, the Cardinals are 5-2 in Wainwright’s last seven starts, 10-4 in his last 14 starts on Sunday, and 4-1 in his last five starts versus a team with a winning record. The Cards are also 6-2 in their last eight games when Doug Eddings is behind home plate, while the road team is also 6-2 in Eddings’ last eight games behind the dish. Wainwright looked great against Arizona in his first start of the season until he was struck in the shoulder by a come-backer. The wheels fell off for him after that but look for him to bounce back against a Giants team that doesn’t score many runs. After the Giants came back from a 3-1 deficit in last year’s NLCS, the Cardinals can put a lot of demons to rest with a win today.
