Score: 7 - 4
Money Line: -144 St. Louis
4* MLB *Afternoon Delight* on Cardinals -144
Off back-to-back losses to the Braves, expect the Cards to leave it all on the field in order to salvage a game in the series. St. Louis will certainly be in good hands with Lance Lynn toeing the rubber.
Dating back to last season, Lynn is 7-0 in his last 7 starts. He hasn't allowed more than 2 earned runs in any of those outings and has allowed fewer than 2 in 6 of them. The Cardinals have won these games by an average of 5.1 runs. Expect Atlanta to struggle as they see Lynn for the first time this afternoon.
The Braves are 2-8 in their last 10 games as a road underdog. The Cardinals are 20-9 in their last 29 games as a home favorite and 20-6 in their last 26 home games vs. a right-handed starter. The Braves are 2-7 in the last 9 meetings in St. Louis. Take the Cards.
