MLB Picks, October 3rd

The divisional playoffs begin in Atlanta and St. Louis today

$20 on St. Louis (Wainwright) over Pittsburgh (Burnett) -1 1/2 @ +155
Wainwright has surrendered only 7 runs in his last 5 starts, including 7 innings of 2 hit ball against Pittsburgh last month. Burnett has fared well against the Redbirds when pitching at home, but on foreign soil he has been popped for 10 runs in 7+ innings in his last two starts in the "Show Me" state. The Cardinals have beaten the Pirates 4 straight times at home.
$65 on St. Louis (-160) to win series over Pittsburgh
Both teams have strong pitching, but St. Louis has the better offense, featuring 5 hitters averaging .296 and above. That should be enough to put them over the top against the Pirates.
$65 on LA Dodgers (-160) to win series over Atlanta
The Dodgers have too much pitching for the Braves to overcome in a short series.
Starting Bankroll                          $1,500.00
Profit/Loss                                     $140.75
Current Bankroll                          $1,640.75

Action is considered dead unless both listed pitchers start.
