St. Louis Cardinals Host Hudson, Atlanta Braves

Two teams that are trying to make it to the postseason in the National League will duke it out on Sunday at Busch Stadium, as the St. Louis Cardinals face off with the Atlanta Braves.

MLB betting festivities get started at 2:10 p.m. (ET) in the Gateway to the West, and there will be live television coverage on FOX Sports Midwest and FOX Sports South.

It wasn't that long ago that the Cards probably thought they were out of the postseason, but with a little over two weeks to play, perhaps they aren't out of it quite yet. St. Louis was six games behind the Milwaukee Brewers in the loss column in the NL Central entering Saturday, and the same distance back in the loss column of the Braves for the NL Wild Card.

Meanwhile, Atlanta's once very, very comfortable lead in the NL Wild Card has dwindled just a bit; getting swept in this series would be devastating and would make things a lot less comfortable down the stretch.

The Braves' Tim Hudson looks like he could be running out of gas. In his last three starts, he has thrown 18 1/3-innings and allowed nine runs on 22 hits.

The good news is that his splits are still fantastic for the season. Hudson is 14-9 with a 3.14 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP. Batters are only hitting .231 against him.

Hudson hasn't pitched well against St. Louis is his career, allowing 35 runs in 60 innings of work. His 3-3 record in 10 starts is also nothing to write home about.

The Cardinals have won three straight and eight out of 11 with Saturday's matchup still pending, and that's what has gotten them back into the postseason picture. In this stretch, they have only allowed more than four runs once, and are scoring 4.73 runs per game.

Jake Westbrook hasn't pitched very well since being traded to St. Louis from the Cleveland Indians at the deadline last year. However, over the course of his last four starts, he has been the pitcher that the Cardinals thought they were getting.

Westbrook has allowed just 10 earned runs in his last four starts, averaging six innings of work in those outings.

He has only started against the Braves three times in his career, going 0-1 with a 4.24 ERA. He allowed two runs in six frames against Atlanta in his one start this year in April.

The Cardinals have won four of the last five and nine of the last 12 in this series coming into the weekend. The Braves have scored three runs of fewer in four of the last five.

In respect to the total, the 'over' is 7-2 in the last nine clashes, and 6-2-2 in Hudson's 10 starts against the Cardinals.

Showers are in the forecast in St. Louis, as there is a 40 percent chance of rain. Temperatures should be in the low-to-mid 80s with relatively light winds.

Matt Garza, Chicago Cubs At New York Mets

There are certainly more compelling matchups on Sunday's MLB schedule, such as the Red Sox at the Rays or the Phillies in Milwaukee. But ESPN is going to squeeze every bit of drama it can out of the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11th attacks with the Chicago Cubs in New York to take on the Mets.

The prime-time telecast begins at 8:00 p.m. (ET) and features a starting pitching matchup between Matt Garza and Miguel Batista.

Assuming the 30 percent chance of rain in the forecast for Queens doesn't get in the way, Sunday's contest will bring the season series between the clubs to a close. The Mets knotted things up 2-2 Friday night thanks to Justin Turner's walk-off double in the bottom of the ninth to give New York a 5-4 win laying -140 on the MLB money line.

Game 2 of the set was still in progress at press, with the Mets -130 and an 8½-run total in a battle between Chris Capuano and Cubs right-hander Randy Wells.

It's been one of those seasons for Garza (12-15, 3.52) who will be making his first career start against the Mets. A lack of run support has been a huge part of his disappointing season with Chicago averaging 3.81 runs per game when Garza takes the mound. A closer look reveals that 33 of those runs came in just three of his 27 starts, and the Cubs have plated two runs or less in 11 others.

Life on the road has been another stumbling block for the former Fresno State star. Garza's 4.84 ERA away from Wrigley Field is more than two runs higher than his mark at the friendly confines. Chicago is 4-8 in his dozen assignments outside of the ivy-covered walls.

There has been marked improvement since the end of July for Garza who has a 2.23 ERA his last seven outings. The Cubs are 5-2 in those games, including 3-0 on the road.

The fact that Batista (3-0, 2.25) is part of the Mets' rotation should tell you how thin their mound corps is. Released in June by St. Louis, New York signed the 40-year-old journeyman and stuck him at Triple-A Buffalo for a couple of months before calling him up to take the spot that opened when Jon Niese Intercostal strain) went to the disabled list.

Batista worked almost exclusively out of the 'pen for the Cardinals, his lone start simply to bide some time that rainy evening in St. Louis for Kyle McClellan. Batista walked the only Reds batter he saw in the top of the first before a rain delay halted things for a while.

It's hard to argue with results, however. The Cardinals won that game and the Mets have won both of Batista's starts since he joined their rotation on Sept. 1. He's allowed 18 baserunners in his 12 innings so far, all against the Marlins, but was able to work out of jams with only three runs scoring.

Batista has also dominated the hitters in this Cubs lineup with the exception of Carlos Peña (4-for-13, 2 doubles).

Sunday's man behind the plate should be Paul Schreiber whose games are on a bit of an 'over' kick after beginning the season on the low side of the betting totals. A closer look at the stats reveals he worked several games with 9-run or higher totals early on while most of his recent games have been 8½ or less. Schreiber is 10-9-1 'over' when you add it all up.

New York remains at home to begin a series with the Nationals on Monday while the Cubs head west to Cincinnati to meet the Reds.

Montreal looks to settle the score with Hamilton

HAMILTON TIGER-CATS (5-4)

at MONTREAL ALOUETTES (5-4)


Kickoff: Sunday, 1:00 p.m. EDT
Line: Montreal -5, Total: 57

Montreal will get a great shot at payback on Sunday when it faces the Hamilton Tiger-Cats for the second half of a home-and-home series. Less than a week ago on Monday, Hamilton put a hurting on the Alouettes in a 44-21 victory.

Hamilton has had problems on the road this year going 1-3 SU (2-2 ATS) and scoring just 24.0 PPG compared to 32.8 PPG at home. The Tiger-Cats defense also has suffered away from home, allowing 30.3 PPG and 416.7 YPG. The Alouettes, on the other hand, are 3-1 SU (2-2 ATS) at home and their defense is substantially better in Montreal, allowing only 18.5 PPG compared to a horrid 32.8 on the road. The Alouettes are 73-32 (70%) since 1996 when revenging a same-season loss versus an opponent, off an upset loss as a favorite. Montreal also has handled Hamilton well, going 33-18 SU overall (65%) and 21-6 SU at home (78%) against the Tiger-Cats since 1996. Expect MONTREAL to bounce back on Sunday and take down Hamilton by at least a touchdown.

The FoxSheets provide a four-star coaching trend siding with the Alouettes.

Marc Trestman is 11-1 ATS (91.7%, +9.9 Units) in home games after 1 or more consecutive losses against the spread as the coach of MONTREAL. The average score was MONTREAL 38.9, OPPONENT 14.8 - (Rating = 4*).

Hamilton had a dreadful 1-3 start but has won four of five and looks to gain sole possession of second place. The Tiger-Cats had both the running and passing game going last week against Montreal. Running back Avon Cobourne rushed for 102 yards and two touchdown as quarterback Kevin Glenn went 14-of-18 for 237 yards, a touchdown and no interceptions.

Montreal’s quarterback Anthony Calvillo had a bad game according to his standards, connecting on 17-of-30 passes for 215 yards and no touchdowns on Monday. Calvillo’s favorite target was Jamel Richardson, who caught 10 passes for 199 yards. Some of Richardson’s yards were in part to back-up quarterback Adrian McPherson who went 7-of-12 for 92 yards. Richardson has recorded 100 yards in five games this year, including a current run of three straight games. The Alouettes also have the top running back in the CFL in Brandon Whitaker who has rushed for 670 yards on just 102 carries. Whitaker was not able to get anything going last week against Hamilton, rushing for only 56 yards on eight carries. Montreal needs to get Whitaker off and running on Sunday to get its high-powered offense going.

Sunday’s betting tips: Foster a game-time decision

Who’s hot

NFL: The Lions were 5-0 ATS in their last five overall last season and 4-0 ATS in their last four against the NFC.

NFL: The over was 8-2 in the Jaguars’ last 10 overall last season.

NFL: The Falcons were 4-0 ATS in their last four road games last season and 7-2 ATS in their last nine overall.

MLB: The Cardinals are 8-3 in their last 11 overall and the under is 5-0 in their last five overall.

MLB: The Tigers are 4-0 in their last four home games and the over is 7-1 in their last eight overall.

WNBA: Indiana is 6-1 in its last seven home games and the over is 5-1 in its last six overall.

Who’s not

NFL: The Browns were 0-4 ATS in their last four overall, last four home games, and last four against the AFC last season.

MLB: The Padres are 3-13 in their last 16 overall.

MLB: The Red Sox are 1-5 in their last six overall and 1-4 in their last five road games.

WNBA: Phoenix is 1-4 ATS in its last five home games.

Key stat

0 – Number of times the Washington Redskins sacked Eli Manning in two games last season. Not surprisingly, the Giants won both contests. Not even Redskins’ defensive end Brian Orakpo could get to the quarterback. Orakpo has 19.5 sacks in two seasons, seventh most of anyone in the NFL in his first two years in the league since 2000.

Injury that shouldn’t be overlooked

Texans' running back Arian Foster continues to be the big injury story heading into Sunday of Week 1. Foster is officially listed as questionable and he confirmed on Friday that he is a game-time decision for Sunday's home date with Indianapolis. The former University of Tennessee star assured that he did not have pain "or any kind of hindrance" while running on Friday. According to the Houston Chronicle, though, Foster also said, "The coaches and I both know...if you rush back a hamstring it's going to bite you again, and it's going to keep biting you." Derrick Ward will get the start with Ben Tate coming off the bench if Foster cannot go.

Biggest game on the slate

Pittsburgh Steelers at Baltimore Ravens (-1, 36)

Notable quotable

“I'm supportive of Kerry Collins. I was never against Kerry Collins coming here. I think you guys or one guy, I'm not going to say who it is, kind of turned it around on me. Kerry's our guy, and we're going to rally behind him and play football.” – Indianapolis Colts’ wide receiver Reggie Wayne, who had previously expressed doubts when his team signed Collins in the wake of Peyton Manning’s neck problem. Collins will get the start at Houston on Sunday afternoon.

Tips and notes

The Phillies were once again without Chase Utley and Jimmy Rollins in Saturday’s road game against Milwaukee. Utley recently sustained a concussion and Rollins is dealing with a sore groin. Neither one is expected to take the field on Sunday and Utley could be out until the middle of next week. The second baseman reportedly has no post-concussion symptoms, but Philadelphia is prepared to play it safe.

What's new? The Broncos do not have a running back rotation that is set in stone. Both Knowshon Moreno and Willis McGahee will be featured during Monday night's home game against Oakland. "We're going to roll them," offensive coordinator Mike McCoy told the Denver Post. "They're going to play, and if one of them is tired, the other one is going in. Then we'll just keep them going. Both of them are going to play plenty of snaps, but we're not going to worry about counting snaps with them." Sounds like Denver is once again going with whoever has the hot hand.

Sunday's six-pack

-- Tampa Bay Rays are now only 4.5 games behind Boston in race for AL Wild Card; Angels are only 1.5 games behind Texas in AL West.

-- In his last seven starts, Cliff Lee has allowed four runs in 56.2 IP. It says here he's more than earned his money.

-- Mariners have score total of two runs in Michael Pineda's last three starts; they had two hits Saturday, both solo home runs.

-- Doesn't happen often, but Colorado rookie Alex White was winning pitcher Saturday, despite giving up five homers against the Reds.

-- Red-hot Dodgers are only 2.5 games behind the Giants; race isn't for a playoff spot, but teams are rivals. Rough September for the Giants.

-- Arizona held a 10-year reunion of its 2001 World Champs Saturday; they capped it off by tying game with two runs in 9th, then winning it in the 10th. Magical 2011 season for the Diamondbacks.


***************


Sunday's List of 13: Wrapping up a college football Saturday

13) The last 1:12 of the Michigan-Notre Dame game was great theater, as long as you're not a Notre Dame fan. 114,804 fans paid to see an exciting but not great game- there were eight turnovers and Michigan averaged just under 31 yards a completion. Not the best defense, but for tension and excitement and bad throwback jerseys, this game was fun to watch.

12) As far as Wolverine QB Denard Robinson goes, we need a bowl game with him and Robert Griffin III of Baylor, just for the hell of it.

11) Then there was the bizarre end of the Utah-USC game, which is going to take a little time to explain. Utah tried a 41-yard FG to tie the game with 0:11 left to play, but it was blocked, and USC ran the ball back for a TD that put them ahead 23-14 with no time left on the clock.

One small problem, there was a flag on the USC bench for celebrating too much, so the referee and the Versus TV people went off their air with the final score 17-14, USC. The betting line? Trojans, minus-8.5 points. You get the idea that there might have been some chaos in Las Vegas, eh?

10) The kicker is that a little while after the game, the Pac-10 comes out and says that the celebration rule that nullifies a TD only applies to the guys who are IN THE GAME, so the celebration penalty on substitutes didn't nullify the TD, and USC was officially declared a 23-14 winner.

As far as I know, and please correct me if I'm wrong, Vegas paid out on a 17-14 USC final., which made Utah backers the winners. Must have been quite a scene in the sportsbooks.

9) Oh lost in all of this, South Carolina beat Georgia 45-42 and Auburn upset Mississppi State 41-34, stopping the Bulldogs at the 1-foot line on the last play of the game. The SEC doesn't lack for drama, either. I mean, South Carolina scored two defensive TDs and had a 68-yard TD run by a defensive end on a fake punt, and they only won by three points. Damn.

8) Yes, Melvin Ingram is a defensive end for the Gamecocks; not only did he score on the fake punt, he scored a clinching TD on defense with 3:12 left to play, and he recovered Georgia's onside kick with 2:15 left. Yes, he is a defensive end on the hands team. Go figure.

7) Army ran the ball for 403 yards against San Diego State; Rutgers had a +5 turnover ratio against North Carolina. They both lost. Weird day.

6) Colorado's Paul Richardson caught 11 passes for 284 yards and couple of TDs as he did his best Jerry Rice imitation in the Buffs' 36-33 OT loss to the Cal Bears, who whacked Colorado 52-7 last year. You get the idea that the Colorado coaches will be good recruiters, and in a couple years, they're going to be a very tough out in the Pac-10.

5) Penn State completed just 12 of 39 passes in an ugly loss to Alabama; they're now 1-10 vs spread in their last 11 games as an underdog. It begs the question, it just has to, at what point does recruiting get hurt because the head coach is going to be 85 in December? Joe Paterno is an icon, one of the best coaches ever. Who decides when it is time for him to retire?

4) UCLA pulled away from San Jose State late, winning 27-17, but they allowed 202 rushing yards, the 8th time in their last nine games they've given up 150+ yards in the ground. Thats a very glaring weakness.

3) ESPN.com had this headline on a story from Friday's night's game out in the desert: "Arizona State stuns #21 Missouri." Maybe its me, but I'm expecting freakin' ESPN to know that Arizona State was favored to win that game by 10 points. Only stunning outcome was if ASU lost.

2) Biggest upset of the day was New Mexico State (+20) upsetting the Golden Gophers 28-21 in Minnesota. Gophers' coach Kill had a seizure on the field in the last minute of the game, brought on by dehydration. He was in stable condition Saturday night. We wish him well.

1) Ten years ago today our country was stunned by the hideous acts that took thousands of innocent lives. You can't forget that day, you just hope it never happens again, and that the world will become a more sane place. We pray for those who lost loved ones, and hope they stay strong.

Canadian Bacon: CFL Week 11 odds and picks
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hamilton Tiger Cats at Montreal Alouettes (-5, 57)

The Alouettes are still plagued with injuries; it’s obvious that the chemistry that made this team so tough to beat over the last three seasons has been seriously put to the test by each loss.

But if this team still has a bit of pride, it will bounce back this week in front of the fans at Percival-Molson Stadium.

It is the second time this year that the Alouettes are on a two-game losing streak. Anthony Calvillo, although shut down by Hamilton’s defense, remains one of the most efficient QBs in the CFL with a TD-INT ratio of 17-4.

You have to think that coach Marc Trestman will run the ball more often with Brandon Whitaker, who leads all rushers. The attack becomes somewhat predictable, despite all of his tricky patterns on offense.

The return of DT Eric Wilson should slow down former Alouette Avon Cobourne, who rushed for 102 yards and a pair of touchdowns on 19 carries in the Tiger Cats' win.

Pick: Alouettes


Saskatchewan Roughriders at Winnipeg Blue Bombers (-5.5, 47.5)

The Roughriders are better than their 1-7 records indicates. Although it will be tough in Winnipeg, they should prevail again against a Blue Bombers team that is starting to show some weaknesses and vulnerability.

The acquisition of Dallas Baker and the return of Adam Fantuz (released by the Chicago Bears last week) will give QB Darian Durant two prime targets.

Defensively, the Blue Bombers have become more predictable after dominating the league in sacks. They only have one in their last two games.

Pick: Roughriders
