Monday's MLB Free Pick: St Louis Cardinals -138

The Cardinals come into this game having won 8 of their last 11 games overall and are currently an NL-best 28-15 on the season. St Louis has got off to a strong start behind one of the best starting rotations in baseball. One of the big surprises has been how well youngster Shelby Miller has performed early on. In eight starts, Miller is 5-2 with a 1.40 ERA and 0.877 WHIP. What's important here is he has been equally dominant on the road, where he has a 3-1 record with a 1.87 ERA. In his last three starts combined, Miller has allowed one earned run on a mere 12 hits over 21 2/3 innings of work.

San Diego will counter with Jason Marquis, who has pitched well of late with a 2.37 ERA over his last three starts. However, I think Marquis has been extremely fortunate in the early stages of the season. His 1.347 WHIP is extremely high and for a pitcher who doesn't strike out a lot of batters, its only a matter of time before he gets torched for a big number. Given how the Cardinals are swinging the bats, there's a good chance that comes tonight. St Louis has scored 15 runs on an impressive 32 hits over their last 3 games. That adds up to an average of 5 runs and nearly 11 hits per game. With Miller on the mound, if they come anywhere close to that they should win this game easily. BET THE CARDINALS!
