St. Louis Cardinals vs Houston Astros MLB Betting Free Pick

St. Louis Cardinals: Look to extend NL Wild Card lead

After going ice cold at the start of September, St. Louis is one of the hottest clubs in baseball as they have reeled of a 8-1 record while feasting on the likes of the Chicago Cubs and tonight’s opponent, the Houston Astros. It’s a rare a occurrence when a stud starting pitcher makes his second start of the season in game 156. That’s the case tonight as RHP Chris Carpenter heads to the bump for the Cardinals.

Houston Astros: Thinking can we just get this over an done with

When a team’s record sits at a horrible 50-105, one has to wonder how much fight they have left in the tank. The Houston Astros are closing out their 51st and final season in the National League (they move to the AL West in 2013) and they’re going out with a whimper rather than a bang. RHP Bud Norris (5-13 ERA 5.05) is slated to start for the ‘Stros but that could change as he is dealing with a blister and the flu.

St. Louis survived their early September swoon and appear locked in the second Wild Card spot with a 4.5 lead over the Dodgers and Brewers. The defending World Series Champs can’t take anything for granted as a pair of series against the divisional leaders Washington and Cincinnati loom to close out their season.
