MLB Free Play: St. Louis Cardinals at Atlanta Braves

Matt is 14-6 in MLB freebies this season. He turns his attention to Atlanta on Tuesday night for a National League clash between the Braves and the visiting St. Louis Cardinals.

Event: (957) St. Louis Cardinals at (958) Atlanta Braves
Sport/League: MLB
Date/Time: May 14, 2019 7PM EDT
Play: Total Over 9.0 (-101)

Mike Foltynewicz is 0-2 with a 5.94 ERA in three starts for the Braves. Folty has allowed 15 runs and 19 hits in just over 16 innings with 10 strikeouts to just five walks. In his career he’s 2-3 with a 8.06 ERA and a WHIP of 1.925 in five starts against them. The Cardinals are averaging five runs per game this season and have gone over in 10 of their 18 road games. Atlanta’s bullpen has a 4.86 ERA at home and three saves in seven chances. Jack Flaherty has lost two straight starts and is 0-2 with a 8.52 ERA in three road starts. Flaherty has allowed 21 runs and 40 hits in his eight outings overall. The righty lost to the Braves last September giving up five runs and five hits in just over four innings. Atlanta is averaging nearly five runs per game and have an offense that should be able to get theirs. The Cardinals bullpen has seven losses and five blown saves this season. These two have gone over in 10 of their last 12 meetings. I think this one does as well.
