The Cardinals are 16-5 in their last 21 road games. St. Louis is 7-2 in Gomber's last nine road starts.


The under is 6-2 in Sanchez' last eight home starts. The over is 13-3 in the last 16 meetings.


Gomber has slowed down since a fantastic start to his MLB career, while Sanchez is usually consistent in giving Atlanta quality innings. Look for the Braves to have another strong offensive showing, but with betting pitching to go with it.
