Probable Pitching Matchup
Lynn has been really good for St. Louis this season, as he has a 2.69 ERA. He hasn’t gotten much help from the offense, as his record is just 5-3. He gave up nothing last time out to the Brewers but he went just five innings. He is 1-0 in his last three starts with a 1.76 ERA. Lynn has faced the Orioles just once and that was in 2014 in an 8-3 St. Louis win.
Asher is 2-5 with a 5.05 ERA. He has really struggled in his last two starts giving up a total of 11 runs.
Before this series began, the Cardinals and Orioles had not played since 2014. The Orioles took two of three at home in 2014 with all three games going over the total. The teams also played a three-game series in Baltimore in 2011 with the Cardinals winning all three games, with two of the three going under.
Cardinals vs. Orioles Free Picks
Lynn has been excellent all season but it is hard to take the Cardinals on the road because they simply don’t score many runs. Asher hasn’t been that great for Baltimore this season but this should be a favorable matchup against a weak hitting St. Louis team. The Orioles go under the total a lot more than you would think and I think this could be a low scoring game, so I will take this contest on Sunday afternoon under the total.
