Predictions For Betting On Cardinals Braves – Braves Move On To NLDS

St. Louis Cardinals @ Atlanta Braves – Friday October 5, 2012 5:00PM EST

Now that the new “wild card” playoff round consisting of one game is actually here, all of the hype seems almost kind of silly. How about a best of three series where a double-header is played in one ballpark and a single game is played at the other? However you slice it, the online sportsbook experts now have a one-game playoff round on their hands to see which team moves on to the National League Divisional Series. Considering how things have gone the last two weeks of the NL season, the Cardinals have its work cut out for it.

The St. Louis Cardinals is a very talented baseball team with a strong bullpen and clutch hitters. But the legal online sports betting experts feel like the Braves have the edge in this game because of its starting pitching and the red hot bats the Braves have been wielding lately. The momentum of this game has been going back and forth all throughout the month of September. The Cardinals was hot to start the month and then the Braves took off like a rocket. It all comes down to this one game, and it should be a very good game for fans to watch.

St. Louis Cardinals (Kyle Lohse, 16-3, 2.86 ERA)

There is absolutely no doubt in anyone’s mind that the Cardinals are putting its best pitcher on the mound for this game. The only drawback to putting Lohse on the mound is that he has no complete games this year and the Cardinals will want a pitcher to sustain a rhythm for at least seven to eight innings in this game. But Lohse usually comes out by the middle to end of the sixth inning, and that may be something that could affect the outcome of this game.

Atlanta Braves (Kris Medlen, 10-1, 1.57 ERA)

The online betting experts have to be loving the way that the mainstream media is throwing a betting statistic around for Atlanta pitcher Kris Medlen. The Atlanta Braves are 23-0 in games that Medlen has made an appearance. That is such a betting statistic that you will not find it on the MLB website anywhere, but it is significant. However, it is important to note that Medlen has only started 12 games this season. So that statistic is a bit skewed, as many betting statistics are. But it still holds a tremendous amount of significance because Medlen is 8-0 in his last 10 starts.

The Bottom Line

Kyle Lohse is the best pitcher that the Cardinals have right now with Chris Carpenter still recovering from injury. But as good as Lohse is, he is not going to be enough to slow down an Atlanta Braves team that enters this game winning seven of its last 10 regular season contests.

Pick: Atlanta Braves
