Milwaukee Brewers Fantasy Spin

Lorenzo Cain (oblique) struck out as a pinch hitter Monday against the Cardinals. Cain missed his third straight start Monday with an oblique injury. That he was able to pinch hit is a good sign, but it's unclear when he'll be ready to return to the starting lineup. Trent Grisham handled center field duties again on Monday.

St. Louis Cardinals Fantasy Spin

Paul DeJong hit his 22nd homer Monday against the Brewers. Pretty much all of DeJong's offensive value in recent months has come in the form of homers; he had a .403 OBP in April, a .360 OBP in May, a .259 OBP in June, a .276 OBP in July and a .276 OBP so far in August. 22 homers isn't bad and he's still playing really good defense, but it'd be nice if he could get the OBP back up some

MLB Betting Trends

Milwaukee

The Brewers are just 2-5 in their last seven games overall.

St. Louis

The Cardinals have won five straight at Busch Stadium.

Prediction:

Wacha pitched well in Cincinnati but has been terrible otherwise. He’s been bounced out of the Cardinals’ starting rotation twice already and he probably would be better served as a reliever at this point than as the club’s fifth starter. Nevertheless, he gets another start tonight and while Milwaukee struggled to generate offense last night, I see the Brewers rebounding tonight. The Cardinals are 2-5 in Wacha’s last seven starts versus the Brewers, who are 5-1 in Gio Gonzalez’s last six starts overall and 4-1 in his last five outings on the road.

The Pick: Milwaukee Brewers -110
