Cardinals vs. Braves Line Movement

St. Louis Cardinals vs. Atlanta Braves Prediction

St. Louis has been on fire since the break and all the storylines are coming out in full fashion. I have mentioned it multiple times this season, but I will reiterate it. This team loves its city and this city loves this team. Cardinals fans are die-hard and create an atmosphere unlike any other in baseball and this season has been even more than normal.

With Adam Wainwright, Albert Pujols, and Yadier Molina all in their farewell season the emotions and energy are high. This team is always good at home but they have been stellar this season and really want to win right now in front of their fans. What is even more remarkable is how well those veterans are playing.

Albert Pujols had the 700 mark in mind heading into the season but by the break, it looked like a lost cause however suddenly he is well in the chase for it after having one of the best months of any hitter in the league. The rest of the lineup is strong and guys like Nolan and Goldy are doing wonders but having him hot too just really lights a fire for this lineup and team.

Adam Wainwright has the ball today and is one of the best starting pitchers to bet on in all of baseball. That is no joke, in his career he has been incredibly profitable as far as wagers go and that is a testament to the way he throws the ball. The man loves to win and has been pitching incredibly well at home in his later years specifically.

Wainwright has had success against Atlanta before and should be motivated in a primetime matchup at Busch Stadium against a rival. In the past, he has held current Atlanta hitters to a .176/.263/.235 slash line for a poor .499 OPS. He allowed just nine hits and struck out fifteen on 51 ABs.

I am riding with the Birds at home tonight to take the series.
