Fargo's MLB Saturday Afternoon Dominator (134-90 MLB Run)
2018-09-15 13:05:00

This is a play on the ST. LOUIS CARDINALS for our MLB Saturday Afternoon Dominator. St. Louis has dropped the first two games of this series to make it three straight losses and with the dodgers three-game winning streak, the two are tied for the second Wild Card spot in the National League. The Cardinals had won three in a row prior to this but with a chance to fall out of the playoff picture, we expect a rebound on Saturday, at an underdog price. The Cardinals are 4-1 in their last five games after scoring two runs or less in their previous game. Los Angeles also moved to within a half-game of Colorado in the National League West as the winning streak comes on the heels of a 3-5 run but we feel that the wrong team is favored today. John Gant looks to stop the bleeding and he is having a great season with a 3.16 ERA and 1.21 WHIP through 16 starts. He has allowed two runs or less in seven straight starts, posting a 1.60 ERA in the process and despite what is thought to be a scary Dodgers offense, they are hitting just .223 in their last 10 games against right-handed pitching. Rich Hill is having a similar season to Gant yet comes in as the favorite despite tossing just two quality outings over his last seven starts. He has a 4.35 ERA over this stretch and the Cardinals are 7-1 in their last eight home games against left-handed starters. 9* (952) St. Louis Cardinals
