Schule's MLB TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE *BLOCKBUSTER*
St. Louis vs. Pittsburgh,

Score: 6 - 7
Money Line: -150 Pittsburgh
This is an 8* play on the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Pittsburgh has been one of the hottest teams in the majors over the last month, coming into Game 1 of this home series versus St. Louis as winners of 14 of their last 18. I like the Pirates in the series opener.
Chris Archer will make his debut for the Pirates, and he's been sharp winning three of his last four starts. Archer (3-5, 4.31 ERA) has good numbers against the Cardinals in his career. St. Louis has hit just .185 over 27 at bats versus Archer.
The Cardinals hand the ball to John Gant, who has allowed five runs on seven hits, including three home runs in just 5 1/3 innings in his last two appearances. He faced the Pirates earlier this season, allowing three runs on four hits in 5 1/3 innings in a loss at PNC Park.
The Pirates have won six of their last eight home games against the Cardinals.
