MLB:

Cubs / Cardinals Under (9) - Baseball is back! If you look at the recent games for these teams they have been going over 9. However, the Cubs and Cardinals have played 5 head to head games this season that have pushed or gone under 9. One of those games was the same starting pitching matchup that we have tonight between Kyle Hendricks and Carlos Martinez. Kyle Hendricks went 6 innings and only allowed 3 earned runs against this Cards lineup. He has held them to a .254 avg in 130 at bats. Carlos Martinez pitched 5 innings and allowed 3 earned runs to this Cubs lineup. He has held them to a .261 avg in 238 at bats. Both pitchers come in with earned run averages below 4 and I’m expecting both guys to come out fresh after the All-Star break and have quality starts. Let’s also keep in mind that the hitters who were not at the All-Star game probably weren’t waking up and taking swings on their 3 days off, they were probably drinking beer, laying by the pool, and relaxing. First game back from vaca could mean their timing is a little off. Advantage - pitchers. Give me the under.
