MLB 10/14

comment : 0

Sat things out yesterday in the ALCS but I’m ready to hop back in there tonight as the NLCS resumes. Currently on a little 8-2, +10.41 unit heater in my last 10. Granted of course a very small sample size but feeling very confident in my plays right now. Here’s what I’ve got for Monday…

Cardinals (+117) Risking 1.19 to win 1.39 (Flaherty/Strasburg):¬†For as great as Stephen Strasburg has been this year right now outside of Gerrit Cole I’d say Jack Flaherty is pitching better than anyone in baseball. In his last 16 regular season starts he had an ERA of 0.93 and in the playoffs he hasn’t been much worst putting up a 2.77 ERA to go with a 1.08 WHIP and 16 K’s with just 2 BB’s. The Nationals absolutely crush left handers but are a bit easier to handle for right handers and that should work in Flaherty’s favor. Now of course the elephant in the room is the Cardinals just aren’t hitting whatsoever. They were anemic offensively in games 1 and 2 and oddly enough I think a day off and then hitting the road could actually help them. Clear your mind, eliminate distractions, just go out and play kind of thing. Up to 2-0 I don’t think we’ll see anything too crazy out of the bullpen from the Nats like we did in the Dodgers series. That leaves them with guys like Rodney, Doolittle and Hudson at the back end. Not saying those are horrible options but it’s fair to say they aren’t exactly shut down relievers. We’re probably looking at a 3-2, 4-3 type game but with Flaherty on the mound and their backs against the wall I’ll take the Cards at this price.
