Why St. Louis Cardinals are a good bet at +100?
The St. Louis Cardinals had the game won until the dreadful ninth inning. The Cards won’t implode again while pitcher Dakota Hudson ended the regular season with a decent 16-7 record and 3.35 ERA. Hudson should pitch deep into this one.
Because this could be St. Louis’ final game of the season, expect them to do whatever it takes to win. The Cardinals won’t leave anything in the tank. St. Louis has a great shot of getting it done in Game 4.

Braves vs Cardinals NLDS Game 4 MLB Betting Analysis
It’s likely that Julio Teheran picks up the baseball for the Atlanta Braves. Max Fried has moved to the bullpen because Chris Martin is hurt. Manager Brian Snitker added Teheran after Martin’s injury. Unless Snitker starts Dallas Kuechel off short rest, Teheran should get the call.
During the season, Teheran posted a 3.81 ERA and 1.32 WHIP. St. Louis only hits .245 against him. The Braves bat .323 against Dakota Hudson. Granted, that’s only from 31 at-bats, but Atlanta is flying high right now after the comeback win on Sunday night. It’s hard to see St. Louis picking themselves up mentally and physically enough to get the job done on Monday. Atlanta closes out the Cards on Oct. 7.
