Pick Details

(911) St. Louis vs. Pittsburgh (912) 7:05 PM | Thu, Sep 17 2020
Sport: MLB | Star Rating: 8.0 Evaluation: Loss (-1240)
STL (-155) @ pinnacle

This is an 8* play on the Cardinals.

With a win today in Pittsburgh, the Cardinals can get back to .500 on the season. The starting pitching matchup certainly favors St. Louis.

Dakota Hudson will toe the slab for the Cardinals, and he's been on a good run. The right-hander has appeared in four straight wins, allowing two runs or fewer in four of his last five starts.

Pittsburgh will hand the ball to Steven Brault, who has trended in the opposite direction. Four of his last five appearances have been losses for the Pirates, and he's allowed three or more runs in three of his last four starts.

The Pirates have hit a combined .199 over 63 at bats in previous meetings versus Hudson.

Take STL.

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.
We are constantly evaluating online sportsbooks and line feeds to ensure accuracy with our Expert picks. We typically have between 5-10 legal and reputable sportsbooks for our handicappers to select lines from. They are required to select the current line from these featured books so authenticity can always be confirmed – no stale lines!
