St. Louis Cardinals Fantasy Spin

Paul DeJong went 2-for-4 with an RBI in the Cardinals’ loss to the Athletics on Saturday. DeJong put the Cardinals on the board with line-drive RBI single to right-center field off Athletics starter Mike Fiers with two outs in the sixth inning. He also singled in the fourth inning to record his 25th multi-hit effort in 107 games this season. The 26-year-old shortstop remains a middle-of-the-order four-category fantasy contributor, hitting .255/.335/.458 with 70 runs scored, 18 home runs, 51 RBI and six stolen bases in 457 plate appearances.

Oakland A’s Fantasy Spin

Chad Pinder tattooed a pinch-hit, three-run homer to power the Athletics’ to an 8-3 victory over the Cardinals on Saturday. Pinder came off the bench to drive a majestic three-run tater -- his 10th round-tripper of the season -- to left-center field off Cardinals lefty reliever Tyler Webb in the seventh inning. He’s gone deep in back-to-back games to start the month of August. The versatile 27-year-old utility specialist hasn’t been able to carve out an everyday role for the Athletics, but there is still plenty of pop in his bat, which makes him relevant in extremely deep mixed leagues and AL-Only formats.

MLB Betting Trends

St. Louis

The Cardinals have won five of their last six on the road but did drop last night’s game in Oakland. They’re also 14-6 in their last 20 games overall.

Oakland

The A’s have now won five of their last six games overall and are 5-1 in their last six games versus a right-handed starter.

Prediction:

The Cardinals are 0-5 in their last five games versus the A’s and I see them dropping this one as well. Wainwright has been outstanding at Busch Stadium this season, posting a 5-2 record with a 2.26 ERA but has been dreadful on the road. In 10 starts, Wainwright owns a 2-5 record with a 7.16 ERA, has allowed 39 runs with eight home runs while walking 23 batters and striking out 43. The Cardinals are 0-6 in his last six road starts versus a team with a winning record, while the A’s are 9-4 in their last 13 games following a win.

The Pick: Oakland A’s -136
