Tonight the Phillies travel to St Louis to play the Cardinals. Jake Arrieta for the Phillies and Michael Wacha for the Cardinals. Arrieta has dominated this collection of Cardinals but has struggled with the Phillies. Don’t let his 2.59 ERA fool you; his 4.22 xFIP means there could be some negative regression in store. On the other hand his counterpart Wacha has a 3.09 ERA and 4.20 xFIP and has been solid at home. Neither of the offenses are lighting the world on fire as the 7.5 total indicates. Philadelphia does have the better bullpen but I don’t think it’s going to come to that.
Play the Cardinals at -115 on the money line.
