St. Louis Cardinals: 2011 Champs Battling for Playoffs
St. Louis, counting tonight, has just two games left on its schedule before the regular season comes to an end. Between the two leagues there is only one playoff spot up for grabs and it is the second NL Wild Card spot. The Braves have secured the top spot and the right to host the one-game play-in at the end of the week. The Cardinals are hoping to knock off division rival Cincinnati tonight to claim that second spot.
Cincinnati Reds: Playing for Best Record in NL
Cincinnati clinched the NL Central title weeks ago but has been playing for the best record in the National League since then. Should they clinch the best record they would host the winner of the NL Wild Card game. Mat Latos takes the mound Tuesday night for the Reds as he goes for his 14th win of the season. Last time out Latos retired 14 of the first 15 hitters he faced in a no-decision against the Brewers.
Baseball in the final week of play can be so exhilarating and we think that the Cardinals-Reds game Tuesday night will offer the most excitement on the MLB schedule. Sportsinteraction.com has the Cardinals as -1.5 (+155) home chalk over the Reds. With the playoffs right around the corner, back the Cardinals over the Reds in this contest of NL Central teams as St. Louis works to defend their 2011 World Series crown.
