The St. Louis Cardinals have lost 11 of their last 15 at Busch Stadium but will try and buck that trend on Saturday against the Miami Marlins.
The OVER is 7-2 in the Marlins last 9 games following a win.
The UNDER is 9-3-1 in the Cardinals last 13 games.
The Marlins are 2-6 in the last 8 meetings.
Tom Koehler and Adam Wainwright are the probable starters for both teams. Koehler (6-7, 4.50 ERA) saw his winless stretch extend to four in the wake of Sunday’s defeat against the Cincinnati Reds. The 30-year-old has stifled Cards’ slugger Matt Holliday, as the outfielder is .171 in his life against Koehler.
Wainwright (8-5, 4.49) recorded back-to-back dominant outings into the All-Star break. Wainwright owns a 4-2 career record against Miami.
Kevin Harvick remains ahead of Kyle Busch at the top of the Sprint Cup odds list as the two driver’s lines have not budged since our last update. It does look like there’s some value on the board here, with some of the drivers down the list starting to heat up.
Kyle Busch has seen his position in the standings dip a little recently due to his twelfth place finish at the Quaker State 400 and will have to overtake Harvick if he wants to win his second career Sprint Cup a year after he won his first.
Pela primeira vez em um confronto principal, brasileiro não deu chances para Michael McDonald, que ficou de pé por menos de três minutos no octógono
Ele não é conhecido como “Mãos de Pedra” à toa. Aos 2m43s do primeiro round, John Lineker nocauteou o norte-americano Michael McDonald na luta principal do UFC Fight Night 91, disputado, na noite de quarta-feira (13/7), em Sioux Falls (EUA). Foi a maior vitória da carreira do lutador paranaense, que superou, de forma arrasadora, o número cinco da categoria peso-galo (até 61kg).
Definida a grande final da Libertadores 2016: Atlético Nacional-COL x Independiente del Valle-ECU vão disputar o principal título do futebol sul-americano nas próximas duas semanas (20 e 27 de julho). De todas as possibilidades de final essa era a menos provável, visto que as duas equipes enfrentaram dois gigantes da América do Sul nas semifinais. Surpresa do torneio, o time equatoriano venceu o Boca Juniors por 3 a 2 e calou um La Bombonera lotado na última quinta-feira (14).
With the addition of Kevin Durant, the rich got richer in the NBA during the offseason. But will the Golden State Warriors, coming off a record-setting season, become one of the greatest dynasties the league has ever seen? It’s hard to argue against it.

The Washington Nationals and Pittsburgh Pirates were both seen as playoff-caliber teams prior to the beginning of the 2016, but only one has emerged as a real postseason threat at the All-Star break. Five games under .500, the Pirates will try and turn the ship around when they travel to D.C. to take on the Nats on Friday.
The Pirates are 9-2 SU and 10-1 ATS in their last 11 games.
The total has gone OVER in the Pirates' last four games with Francisco Liriano as the starting pitcher.
The total has gone OVER in 12 of the Nationals' last 13 games with Stephen Strasburg as the starting pitcher.
Francisco Liriano and Stephen Strasburg are slated to get the ball for the Pirates and Nationals, respectively. Liriano (5-8, 5.15 ERA) has rebounded from a terrible stretch to allow four runs in his last two outings.
Strasburg (12-0, 2.62) opted to skip the All-Star Game due to nagging injuries, but he’s been lights out all year long. Strasburg is 2-2 with a 2.83 ERA in five career starts against the Pirates.
When the Nats and Pirates collide, the OVER is red-hot. In the last four matchups between the squads, the OVER is 4-1.
In case you haven’t been betting the bases this summer the story of the major league season so far has been the rise in scoring.
Scoring has catapulted to 9.01 runs per game heading into the All-Star break, which is way up from last year’s average of 8.21 runs per game at the same time.
You can thank the long ball for the boost in runs because MLB teams are each averaging 1.16 home runs per game this season. That’s the highest home run rate since 1.17 per game, which came in 2000 at the peak of the steroid era.
The Toronto Blue Jays entered the All-Star break playing some fantastic baseball, and they’ll look to keep up the torrid pace on Friday against the lowly Oakland A’s. The Jays are sitting in the second wild-card spot in the American League and trail Baltimore by two games in the AL East.
The total has gone UNDER in five of the Blue Jays' last seven games against teams with losing records.
The Athletics are 1-5 SU in their last six games with Daniel Mengden as the starting pitcher.
The Blue Jays are 9-2 SU in their last 11 games on Friday.
Marcus Stroman and Daniel Mengden are the probable starters for both teams. Stroman (7-4, 4.89 ERA) has given up only three runs over his last 14.5 innings after surrendering 11 over 8.5 in his previous two outings.
Mengden (1-4, 4.54) will start in place of Rich Hill, who was scratched with a blister. Mengden has been pitching very well of late but allowed six earned runs in his most recent outing before the break.
When travelling to the Bay Area, the Blue Jays are and UNDER machine. Toronto is 5-2 in its last seven on the road against the Athletics.
