The Pirates are 16-39 in their last 55 road games and 21-48 in their last 69 overall. The Cardinals are 39-16 in their last 55 home games and 38-18 in their last 56 overall. The over is 5-2 in Pirates last 7 road games. The under is 4-0 in Cardinals last 4 overall. The Pirates are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in St. Louis and 15-39 in the last 54 meetings.

Luis Ortiz has been solid through 3 starts, but he has just 15.1 innings under his belt for his career. Jordan Montgomery has been terrific since over from the Yankees, as he has a 3.12 ERA and 1.11 WHIP in 57.2 innings with his new team. The Cardinals are simply the more trustworthy team here, and I need a larger sample size from Ortiz to trust him. Give me the Cards and the RL for max betting value.
