MLB FREE PICK: Take St. Louis. According to latest MLB trends, the Cardinals are 8-1 in Kelly's last nine starts and 6-1 in his last seven starts when they're favored. They're also 4-1 in his last five road starts, 6-0 in his last six starts following a team loss in their previous game, and 7-1 in his last eight starts versus a team with a losing record. Outside of his last outing Kelly has been one of the rocks in the Cardinals' starting rotation over the past months. Whenever they've needed to stop the bleeding, he's been there to pick up a win. He doesn't go very deep into games but he always pitches with confidence and swagger and he should once again pick up the pieces following the Cardinals' loss last night.
