The Cardinals are at +114 at the Cubs today. Are you fucking kidding me with that? This is absolutely a double or nothing your bank account bet.
First off, the Cards have an enormous advantage in starting pitching today. They have their #1 in Lackey vs the Cubs #4 in Hammel, who has been absolutely atrocious since the all star break.
Second, it’s an elimination game for a veteran team that’s played and succeeded in this situation countless times throughout the past decade.
Third, did everyone just forget that the Cards are the best top-to-bottom team in the National League? They’re not losing to the Cubs today, especially with Addison Russell out of the lineup.
Take the Cards moneyline as well as the over for their team total of 3.5 runs. Too eeaassyyyyy!
