When two high-quality pitchers face off you can approach a game with so many different angles. I’ll roll with what’s hot for us lately though and not stray away from a winning formula. Here's my best MLB pick for tonight's Brewers vs. Cardinals

Milwaukee Brewers vs. St. Louis Cardinals Prediction: Should You Trust the Veteran Starting Pitchers?

I don’t believe in banned lists but if I did the Brewers would be on it. We’ve had good fortune with almost every team but both Burnes and Woodruff sold for me on separate occasions. I’m now in collector mode. I know they feel bad for taking our coins and they know it’s only right to give them back. Woodruff and Wainwright take the mound tonight. These are two pitchers I definitely respect and I would expect a nice low-scoring game tonight. Woodruff got absolutely shelled in his first start but I expect a bounceback performance and Wainwright looked very sharp allowing no runs through 6 innings regardless of his 40-year-old age.

No Runs Second Inning (-134) (Bet $134 to win $100)

So why are we on this NRSI? Woodruff will likely be facing DeJong, Pujols, Molina, Bader, and Edman who are a combined 14-65 against him with no homers and 3 total RBI’s. Wainwright will likely faceoff against Tellez, Narvarez, and Cain who are 12-49 lifetime against but haven’t proven they could hit him for extra base hits. This game just has the makings of a pitching duel and no matter who is in the batter's box I’m confident they will get routine outs.

Woodruff had a 2.3 ERA last year at home and Wainwright on the road has opponents batting a low average than his home splits. I think people will be wary of Woodruff because of how poor he looked in a smash spot on his opener but I have too much faith in him to believe he’ll be that bad twice in a row. Funny enough, even in his awful start he had last week he didn’t allow a 2nd inning run. The Cardinals have failed to score a 2nd inning run in 3/4 games and the Brewers have failed to score a 2nd run in 5/6. That would mean this bet has a 62.5% implied chance of winning which is worth the juice we have to pay. Lets ride it!
