Best bets for Cardinals-Dodgers NL wild-card game

By VSiN Staff  ( 


The Los Angeles Dodgers won 106 games this season, going over their season win total of 104.5 and accomplishing something just 22 other teams have done in the history of Major League Baseball.  And yet somehow, improbably, the San Francisco Giants won 107 games and NL West crown, which means the Dodgers are in the wild card with a single game deciding their fate.

Here are our best bets for the NL-wild-card game:

St. Louis Cardinals (+ 200) at Los Angeles Dodgers (-220)

Total: 7.5

Burke: The Dodgers are a massive favorite and deservedly so against the Cardinals in Wednesday’s NL Wild Card Game. Scherzer has been virtually unhittable since the Dodgers acquired him at the Trade Deadline and there are some real concerns about Wainwright on the road, even though his home/road splits have been significantly better this season.

Maybe there are some concerns about the last two starts for Scherzer, who allowed 11 runs on 17 hits after allowing just six runs on 31 hits in his first nine starts with the Dodgers, but there probably shouldn’t be. The Cardinals are a great story for their long winning streak and for making the postseason, but this was still a below average offensive team with a 97 wRC and a .312 wOBA for the regular season.
