Ben Rolfe picks his best bet for tonight's MLB playoff action
ANALYSIS

After the Astros tied things up in the ALCS last night, the Nationals and Cardinals meet for a third time on Monday. A win for the Nationals puts them 3-0 and within grabbing point of the World Series. However, the Cardinals and pitcher Jack Flaherty might have something to say about that.

Here are Today’s MLB Picks:

St. Louis Cardinals @ Washington Nationals

1u – Under 7 Total Runs @ -110

1u – Under 3.5 Runs in the First 5 Innings @ -112 (Can be backed today at **(http://wlfanduel.adsrv.eacdn.com/C.ashx?btag=a_15540b_1985c&affid=11171&siteid=15540&adid=1985&c=FDGR))**_

- Jack Flaherty had a 0.91 ERA in the second half of the season and has allowed just four earned runs through 13 innings in his first two playoff starts.

- Stephen Strasburg has a 3.21 ERA at home, and 2.91 in the second half of the season.

These two pitchers have been fantastic in the second half of the season and are off to a solid start to the playoffs through two starts. This series has got off to a sluggish start offensively and I am not sure I see that changing with these two on the mound. Additionally, both have been good in the early part of games. Strasburg has a 2.92 ERA the first time through an opposing order, while Flaherty sits with an incredible 0.99 ERA the first time he faces opponents in a game.
