Cardinals' Wacha once again pitches well in no-decision

Michael Wacha gave up four hits and two runs (one earned) over 6 2/3 innings Wednesday in a no-decision against the Royals. Wacha recorded six strikeouts and didn’t walk anyone. Seventy of his season-high 102 pitches went for strikes. The right-hander served up a solo blast to Salvador Perez in the second inning, then gave up another run in the sixth on Whit Merrifield’s sac fly to center. Wednesday marked Wacha’s third straight quality start. He’ll try to keep that streak going in his next outing Tuesday against Milwaukee.

Brewers' Davies struggles in last start vs. Mets

Zach Davies allowed four runs on six hits over four innings against the Mets in his return to the rotation Thursday. Davies gave up six hits and walked two in his first start in close to a month. The right-hander fell to 2-4 with a 4.74 ERA and 1.34 WHIP with the loss. He's never going to be one to strike out a ton of batters or fire seven scoreless innings, but Davies has been serviceable for the Brewers and should be better than he was Thursday.

MLB Betting Trends

St. Louis

The Cardinals are 35-16 in their last 51 games played at Miller Park but are 0-4 in Wacha's last four starts versus the Brewers.

Milwaukee

The Brewers have won four of Davies' last five starts against the Cardinals.

Prediction:

I took a risk on the Cardinals yesterday because I liked the pitching matchup but the Brewers shoved that prediction right back in my face with an 8-3 victory. With how hot Milwaukee has been at the plate, I'm taking the over tonight. Wacha has faced this current Brewers roster for 95 plate appearances and they own a .326 batting average against the righty. On the other side, the Cardinals' current roster has faced Davies in 110 plate appearances and they've hit 3.27 off him. Given how well these offenses have fared against the opposing pitcher in tonight's matchup, coupled with the over being 4-0 in Davies' last four starts versus the Cardinals and 5-2 in Wacha's last seven outings versus Milwaukee, I see tonight being high-scoring like it was yesterday.

The Pick: Cardinals/Brewers over 9
