Cardinals Going UNDER With Relative Ease

The UNDER has been a profitable play when the St. Louis Cardinals take to the diamond lately, as the team has failed to top the closing total in nine of its past 11 games. Those 11 games have seen an average combined score of 6.2 runs per game with only one managing to hit double digits. The Cards continue their series with the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field on Tuesday.

SHARK BITES
  • Matt Carpenter is 0-for-12 in his career against Jorge De La Rosa.
  • The Cardinals are 7-2 SU in their last 9 games against the Rockies.
  • The Rockies are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games at home after a loss at home.

Adam Wainwright has been terrible on the road this season, as the righty has a 6.15 ERA away from Busch Stadium – which is the second-worst mark in the majors. In Wainwright’s past six road starts, he has allowed 35 hits and 18 runs in 30.2 innings of work.

Jorge De La Rosa has been hard to watch if you’re a Rockies fan. De La Rosa has allowed 24 hits and 16 runs in his past three starts while lasting just 14.1 innings.
