Money Line: -124 St. Louis
*4 Star MLB Play of Day* The St. Louis Cardinals have been shut out in back to back games. I was on the Giants on Sunday when Tim Hudson shut out the Cardinals, and then on Monday Danny Duffy and the Royals beat the Cardinals 6-0. The Cardinals offense has underperformed this year, but I'm confident they are better than they have shown. I still believe the Cardinals are the team to beat in the National League this season. Jaime Garcia has been amazing at Busch Stadium throughout his career. The Royals have been terrible against lefties all year. Kansas City is averaging just 3.08 runs per game against left-handed pitching. James Shields is a solid pitcher, but he has been in bad form of late. This is a cheap price on the much better team.
The Cardinals are 4-0 in Garcia's last 4 Tuesday starts. They are 7-1 in their last 8 vs. a team with a losing record. They are 7-1 in their last 8 vs. Kansas City. An 18-2 angle. Take St. Louis.
