Sport: MLB | Star Rating: 7.0 Evaluation: Loss (-1295) - Final Score STL 3 at SD 5
Pick
1.5 STL (-185) @ bet365

I'm playing ST. LOUIS on the run-line (+1.5 runs) After eking out a 1-run win in Friday's opener, the Padres pounded the Cards yesterday. This is a tough matchup for them though and I expect them to have their hands full this evening. The Cards are a perfect 5-0 when Kim has taken the mound this season. In fact, since last year, Kim's team is 8-0 his past eight starts and 11-2 in his 13 career starts overall. Note that both losses came by a single run. In other words, if getting +1.5 runs in each of Kim's starts, as we're able to do here, one would be a perfect 13-0 for his career. He's allowed one run in each of his last four starts, keeping the ball in the park in each of his past three. Weathers hasn't started a game since April, when he left after an inning, due to arm fatigue. He's still 21 and has made only three career starts. Cardinals have score more runs on the season and are the healthier team right now. Tatis (and others) still out for SD. I say the Cards earn AT LEAST the "run-line cover" here.

FAQs

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
