4* Sunday Night Baseball SMASH (ESPN) on Cardinals -156
This is normally a little more juice than I like to pay, but I believe a St. Louis club that is 4-0 in its last 4 games as a favorite of -151 to -200 is worth it tonight.
The Brewers have struggled on the road all season (3-13 in their last 16 road games), and they haven't had much luck against the Cards (7-17 in the last 24 meetings, 1-5 in the last 6 in St. Louis). They are 0-4 in their last 4 games versus a team with a winning record and 0-4 in Estrada's road starts this season. He has an ERA of 5.87 in those games.
The Cardinals, meanwhile, are 4-0 in Lohse's last 4 home starts and 5-0 in his last 5 starts on regular rest (4 days). In all, the Cards have won 8 of Lohse's 10 home starts this season, during which he has posted an ERA of 2.61. Bet the Red Birds.
