Kansas City Royals vs. St. Louis Cardinals
MLB Pick: Cardinals -125 odds (August 9th 2017)

At 8:15 pm, our complimentary selection is on the St. Louis Cardinals over the Kansas City Royals.  The latest installment of the Midwest I-70 series probably won’t garner much interest outside of Missouri as both the Royals and Cards have tread water for most of the season (although the Royals have come alive somewhat as of late).  RHP Mike Leake will get the start at home for the Cardinals and it will be his 23rd of the season. Since boasting the league’s best ERA (1.91) on May 24, Leake has won just two of his next 13 starts and he has an ERA during that stretch of 4.54.  He has, however, allowed three or fewer runs in eight of his last nine starts. His only previous effort against the Royals was a good one, as Leake allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits in seven innings although he took a tough-luck loss.  He will try for a little revenge tonight at home where he boasts a 3.20 ERA in 12 starts, even though he has a losing record here at 3-6 on the season.  The Royals will go with RHP Trevor Cahill, who they acquired about a week before the trade deadline in a deal that many people didn’t notice.  Cahill hasn’t been able to get on track since arriving in Kansas City as he is 0-0 with an ugly 7.27 ERA in two starts covering 8 2/3 innings.  Take the Cards.  As always, good luck…Al McMordie.  And don’t miss my MLB Roadkill Winner today, as I’ve cashed 6 straight days (and 40 of my last 61 releases).  Or, better yet, join right now for a week or month to get all of my award-winning plays.  Football subscriptions are also available, and I was 86-55 in College Football last season (and also 345-263 the last 4 years in Pro Football), so hop on board.
