NL Central-Leading Cardinals Look To Take Advantage Of Three More At Home Versus Cubs

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 6/17/2013 7:16:26 PM

The St. Louis Cardinals are among three National League Central teams in contention for a division title this season. The Chicago Cubs aren’t one of them. St. Louis will look to take advantage of three more games against the Cubs after opening their four-game set on Monday night, and it will be an excellent chance to try and build some more distance between themselves and both Cincinnati and Pittsburgh at the top of the division. Chicago entered this online betting series five games below .500 on the road, while the Cardinals have been a much better team regardless of where they have played.

St. Louis is among the most complete teams in the majors this online sports betting season, ranking in the top-five in both runs scored and runs allowed. The Cardinals will have one of their best on the mound in the second of this four-game set, as Adam Wainwright looks for his sixth-straight win. Wainwright has established himself as an early NL Cy Young award candidate at 10-3 with a 2.18 ERA this season, and while Jeff Samardzija hasn’t been bad at all this season for the Cubs with a 3.46 ERA, he is just 3-7 on the year thanks to inconsistency and a lack of run support.

It’s not going to get any easier for a Chicago team that hasn’t been very good on the road at all this season, as Edwin Jackson takes his 5.40 ERA to the mound Wednesday looking to avoid his ninth loss. Jackson is 3-8 on the year, and that’s after back-to-back wins over the Pittsburgh Pirates and New York Mets after starting 1-8. The Cardinals will counter with Jake Westbrook making just his eighth start of the season. Westbrook is just 2-2 on the year, but his 2.05 ERA is actually better than Wainwright’s and he should feel more comfortable in his second start since coming off the DL, especially with all of the run support he should get opposite Jackson.

The sports betting series wraps up with Lance Lynn chasing his 10th win of the season, although he will likely have to be better than he was in his last start to have any shot at getting it. Lynn improved to 9-1 despite giving up seven earned runs in just five innings of work against the Miami Marlins thanks to the St. Louis offense exploding for 13 runs, but that marked the first time all year he allowed more than four earned runs so he should bring that number back down in this contest. Scott Feldman has pitched well for the Cubs this season despite some inconsistent work, and while he gives Chicago a better shot than Jackson did, it likely won’t be enough to salvage a win.
