T.M. Selection: Rockies/Cards OVER (10* TOTAL MONEY-MAKER).

St. Louis won 5-0 yesterday. While that game stayed well under the number, I believe we'll see a much higher-scoring slug-fest between these two hungry clubs this afternoon. The Cardinals go with Carlos Martinez (2-4, 3.72 ERA), who went eight shutout vs. the Pirates in his last start. While he's 4-1 in 13 career appearances vs. the Rockies, he owns just a 5.57 ERA in that span. Chi Chi Gonzalez (1-0, 4.38) counters for the visiting side; he most recently was shelled for four runs off five hits over four innings in what turned out to be an 8-4 road loss to the D-Backs. Everything points to a similar final combined score here as well in my opinion; this number is low, the play is the over!

T.M. Prediction: 7-6 St. Louis.

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.
