MLB FREE PICK: Take St. Louis. According to latest MLB trends, St. Louis is 6-2 last 8 during game 4 of a series and 7-3 in Westbrook's last 10 starts as a road favorite. Philadelphia is 6-15 in Kendrick's last 21 starts with four days of rest, 1-4 last 5 overall, 1-6 last 7 vs. National League Central and 0-4 last 4 vs. a right-handed starter.

St. Louis (10-7, 6-5 road, 8-8 O/U) defeated the Phillies 5-0 on Saturday as they've taken two of the first three of a four-game series. Philadelphia (7-11, 4-5 home, 9-8 O/U) has now lost five of their last six games. The Cardinals got a strong pitching performance from Lance Lynn on Saturday, as he went seven innings and struck out eight while giving up just one hit and walking three. Carlos Beltran went deep for his fourth of the year in the fifth inning off Cliff Lee. That's all that Cardinals needed to get the win. The Cardinals send out another good pitcher in Jake Westbrook, who is 1-1 this year with a 0.00 ERA. He beat the Phillies 4-1 on August 11, allowing just four hits in 7 2/3 innings. The Phillies have to win this game just to even the series. They lost their last series at Cincinnati as they scored just four runs in three games. Philadelphia averages just 3.5 runs per game and produces a .244 batting average. That's not a good sign when facing a pitcher like Westbrook. The Cardinals meet the Phillies from Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia at 8pmET on Sunday.

MLB FREE PICK: ST. LOUIS CARDINALS -115
