Cardinals vs. Pirates Handicap Pick
With the NL Central Division title on the line, the Cardinals will send Michael Wacha to the hill tonight to take on Charlie Morton and the Pirates at 7:05PM ET.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book GT Bets, the Pirates are -107 money line favorites versus the Cardinals, who have odds of -103 to beat Pittsburgh. With Morton set to face Wacha in the pitching matchup, the total currently sits at 7.5 runs.
There's good value here in the Cardinals, who are 5-1 in Wacha's last six starts versus the Pirates. Pittsburgh is also 3-13 in Morton's last 16 starts versus St. Louis and 0-5 in his last five home starts versus the Cardinals. Usually you have to pay a significant price to take the Cards but with the Bucs as their opponent, this is a good night to jump on St. Louis.
