He did not walk a batter while he struck out four. He is 3-0 with an ERA of 0.44 and 25 strikeouts in 4 appearances against the Cardinals in his career.
St. Louis Cardinals are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games on the road.
St. Louis Cardinals are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games when playing on the road against Atlanta.
Atlanta Braves are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games when playing at home against St. Louis.
The total has gone UNDER in 10 of Atlanta's last 15 games against an opponent in the National League.
The Cardinals have now lost 5 of their last 6 games and 6 straight against the Braves. They'll now have to face the Braves ace Max Fried who has absolutely dominated them. Mikolas will start for the Cards who has also been great against the Braves so expect a great pitching duel on this game and even when I like the Braves to win this game I think the best play is the under.
PICK: Under 8.5 (-110)
