In his last 3 starts against the Cardinals he has a 3.17 ERA and only 6 strikeouts across 14.2 innings pitched. 

BETTING TRENDS

St. Louis are 2-6 SU in their last 8 games on the road.

St. Louis are 7-3 SU in their last 10 games when playing on the road against Milwaukee.

The total has gone UNDER in 8 of Milwaukee's last 12 games against St. Louis.

Milwaukee are 1-7 SU in their last 8 games at home.

Prediction

The Cardinals had their revenge on Tuesday game as they beat the Brewers 6-2 and even without their best player Paul Goldschmidt who was held out for precaution but should be back for the 3rd of the series. Adam Wainwright has lost the last 2 games against the Brewers this season so he should be motivated to beat them this time. Eric Lauer allowed 2 runs and earned the win against the Cards earlier this season. Expect a close game where both pitchers should provide quality starts. Take the under.

PICK: Under 8.5 (-110)
