St. Louis Cardinals vs Milwaukee Brewers Prediction

I have a rule about not betting pitchers making their big league debut because we have no idea what to expect with no sample size. With that said, Robert Gasser is a quality prospect in the Brewers system, so talent is clearly there. Also, the St. Louis Cardinals are racking up the losses and the offense isn't producing. I'd need decent plus money to side with the Cardinals to get in the win column, and we're just not getting it at this price point. So, I have to side with the Brewers and the reasonable price at home, as the Cards lose their sixth straight game.
