1* Free Play “under” Cardinals/Nationals.
100% PERFECT IN NHL PLAYOFFS: "The Wizard Of Ice" was up to his old tricks on Thu, EASILY nailing the "over" in LA/SJ (6-3 final); he's now 3-0 (100%) in the Playoffs and a MONSTER 156-107 +$22,989 NHL Y-T-D! He also swept his MLB card (2-0) and is a MASSIVE 22-9 (71%) +$9,850 Y-T-D at ballpark! "Sub" time?!
The last time these two pitchers squared off it was a 2-0 win for the Cardinals. I think this contest sets up nicely as another low scoring game. The Nationals will send Gio Gonzalez (2-1, 3.50 ERA) to the hill and the Nats are looking to bounce back from yesterday’s drubbing at the hands of the Cards. Gonzalez is looking to bounce back himself after giving up six runs to the Braves in a loss on Sunday. Gonzalez has always been stingy in games vs St. Louis though, a career 2.42 ERA with a 1-1 record against it. The Cardinals will counter with hard throwing right hander Michael Wacha (2-0, 1.89 ERA). Wacha has pitched well this season, giving up just 4 runs in 19 innings pitched. The youngster delivered a gem the last time he faced the Nationals, giving up zero runs in a playoff game last season. The Nationals couldn’t get to Adam Wainwright yesterday but it hardly mattered as the Cards beat up on the Nats worst pitcher. While it doesn’t get much easier today with Wacha, I think Gio will keep this one competitive. Two of the last three games Gonzalez has pitched against the Cards the lower number has hit. Look for another low scoring game here. Consider the “under.”
