After getting no-hit by the New York Mets Friday en route to a 0-8 loss, you can bet the St. Louis Cardinals are fuming right now. They’ll want to take out their frustration on R.A. Dickey and the Mets Saturday. They’ve lost three straight, so motivation will be on their side today.
Lance Lynn is one of the most underrated starters in the big leagues. He has been St. Louis’ best starter, going 8-1 with a 2.54 ERA and 1.068 WHIP in 10 starts while striking out 60 batters in 63 2/3 innings. Dickey has been solid this season as well, but he’s 1-1 with a 7.32 ERA and 1.626 WHIP in three career starts against St. Louis.
The Cardinals are 29-12 against the money line after having lost 3 of their last 4 games over the last 2 seasons. St. Louis is 9-1 in Lynn’s last 10 starts with the total set at 7.0-8.5, including 6-0 in his last 6 road starts with the total set at 7.0-8.5. The Mets are 3-8 in their last 11 games following a win. Bet St. Louis Saturday. -Jack Jones
