According to oddsmakers from online sports book GT Bets, the Cardinals are -149 money line favorites over the Pirates, who have odds of +139 to win tonight's game. With J.A. Happ set to face Carlos Martinez in the pitching matchup, the total is sitting at 7.5 runs.

The under is 5-1-1 in the last seven meetings between these two teams in St. Louis and 5-0 in Happ's last five starts overall. The under is also 5-0-1 in Martinez's last six starts versus a team with a  winning record and 9-2-2 in his last 13 starts following a quality start in his last appearance.

Martinez is fresh after having his spot skilled in the rotation earlier this week. Expect a playoff-like atmosphere at Busch Stadium tonight and also a tight, low-scoring affair.
