MLB BREAKFAST CLUB! (1:05 ET)
St. Louis vs. Pittsburgh,

Score: 6 - 5
Point Spread: +1½/-180 St. Louis
'm playing ST. LOUIS on the run-line. (+1.5 runs.) The Cards, who lost by a run yesterday, are 6-1 the last seven times that Wainwright started against Pittsburgh. The lone loss came by a single run. Speaking of Wainwright, the veteran was outstanding in spring training and enters the season in excellent form. In four spring starts, he had a 2.51 ERA and 0.91 WHIP. Opposing batters hit just .192 against him. Archer, on the other hand, had a 4.63 ERA and 1.47 WHIP during the spring. Archer has made two starts vs. the Cards, one with the Rays and the other with the Pirates. His teams won both of those games by a single run. While I like the Cards' chances of winning this one 'outright,' I'm grabbing the extra +1.5 runs.
