Even though the Rockies are 6-4 in their last 10 their postseason hopes are likely finished now as they sit a full 10 games back in the National League Wild Card. Colorado will need to turn around some of their road form (25-40) when they travel to St Louis to play the Cards.
The Rockies will go with Peter Lambert (2-3, 6.55 ERA) in this spot who is not having a good season so far. Lambert is, however, coming off a decent performance against the Marlins last time out. In that start he allowed 6 hits and 3 earned runs, but ended up with a no decision. It is unlikely, though, that he repeats that performance here as the Cardinals are a much better batting side then the Marlins.
St Louis Cardinals
The St Louis Cardinals have been on a great run lately going 7-3 in their last 10 and now sit in a competitive position in their division being only 0.5 games back of the Cubs. The Cards will be looking to build on their excellent home record of 36-24 in this crucial matchup. St Louis will go with Jack Flaherty (7-6, 3.46 ERA) in this game and he has been pretty unbelievable in his last 8 starts.
In those 8 games Flaherty has a 0.89 ERA and has struck out 61 batters over the 50 1/3 innings he has pitched in that time. I would expect much of the same here from Flaherty who has been untouchable and don’t see a good reason why that would stop in this game.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Rockies are 1-6 in their last 7 games vs. a starter with a WHIP less than 1.15.
- Rockies are 2-9 in Lamberts last 11 starts.
- Cardinals are 4-0 in their last 4 home games vs. a team with a losing record.
- Cardinals are 6-1 in their last 7 home games.
- Cardinals are 5-1 in Flahertys last 6 starts.
Free Colorado Rockies vs. St Louis Cardinals MLB Prediction:
I am not sure anyone should want their money placed against Flaherty right now and I don’t see a good reason to back the Rockies here. I would expect the home side to be a prohibitive favorite here in the -200 range. With that in mind, I am going to go with the runline as I can’t see the Rockies keeping pace with the Cards here.
