Sunday Baseball Bet
The Cardinals are playing at home vs the Astros today. So far both games in this 3 game series have been close. The Cards lost the first game when their closer blew it in the 9th. They then won yesterday off a single in the bottom of the 9th. I don't expect today's game to be as close.
Pitching for Houston is Brandon Backe with a lifetime ERA of 5.64 vs the Cards. Starting for the Cardinals is Kyle Lohse sporting a 3.95 lifetime ERA against the 'Stros.
The real reason I like this game is the season that both these pitchers are having. Lohse has had a great start and doesn't should signs of slowing down. He has the best ERA on the Cardinals (who are 9-5 at home). Backe has started the year with a 4.15 ERA and a 1-2 record playing for a team that's 6-8 on the road.
Good Luck today.
