St. Louis is 6-0 in their last 6 games against the NL West and 10-4 in their last 14 road games. The under is 5-1 in St. Louis’ last 6 games. San Diego is 7-0 in their last 7 games against the NL Central and 7-2 in their last 9 Tuesday games. The over is 5-0 in San Diego’s last 5 home games. St. Louis is 6-0 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings.

San Diego is currently sitting in the second wild card spot in the NL, while the Cardinals have a healthy lead in the NL Central. San Diego will start Mike Clevinger, who has allowed 15 runs over his last 13.1 innings pitched. For the Cardinals, Adam Wainwright has allowed nine runs over his last 15 innings pitched. I am taking the over in this game with both pitchers having some shaky starts recently and having to face very explosive lineups in this matchup.
