Kansas City is 4-1 in their last 5 interleague road games and 4-10 in their last 14 games as an underdog. The over is 4-1 in Kansas City’s last 5 Wednesday games. St. Louis is 5-1 in their last 6 interleague games and 37-18 in their last 55 games. The over is 5-2 in St. Louis’ last 7 Wednesday games. The over is 5-2-1 in these two teams last 8 head to head meetings in St. Louis.

This should be a very good matchup between two pitchers that have had very good careers. Both pitchers on the home stretch of their playing days but started out the season strong in their first games. I like the under in this game as I think this will be a pitchers duel.
