LINE MOVEMENT: The Cardinals opened as -110 money line favorites but their odds have jumped to -114, while the Braves' odds have gone from +102 up to +105. St. Louis is 62-39 overall and 30-22 on the road, while Atlanta is 59-45 overall and 33-15 at home.

MLB FREE PICK: Take St. Louis. According to latest MLB trends, St. Louis is 4-1 last 5 as a favorite, 10-4 in Miller's last 14 starts and 20-9 last 29 vs. NL East. Atlanta is 3-7 last 10 as a dog, 1-6 in Medlen's last 7 starters vs. a team with a winning record and 2-8 last 10 vs.. a starter with a WHIP less than 1.15. 

St. Louis need a win to keep Pittsburgh from inching closer in the NL Central. They'll send out one of their best pitchers to the mound in Shelby Miler (10-6, 2.77 ERA) against Atlanta's Kris Medlen (6-10, 3.78). Miller did not pitch that well in June, posting a 4.31 ERA, but is 2-0 with a 2.65 ERA in July with 17 strikeouts in 17 innings. He takes on the 27-year old Medlen, who is struggling in his last three starts. Medlen is 0-3 with an 8.59 ERA in those starts. Miller has never faced Atlanta, while Medlen had one start last October against the Cards and gave up five runs (two earned) in 6 1/3 innings in a 6-3 loss in the NL wild-card game. St. Louis, the National League's best hitting team, has been held to just six hits and one run in 18 innings against the Braves. That will change on Sunday night against Medlen, who allowed four runs to the New York Mets in 5 1/3 innings in his last start on Tuesday.
