St. Louis Cardinals vs. Pittsburgh Pirates. The MLB pick for this game is the Pittsburgh Pirates. It may be unusual to match up a playoff-bound team like the Cardinals with a bottom-dwelling one like the Pirates.


But in this instance, it seems like a smart wager. The Cardinals basically have nothing to play for, but they are trying to set up their rotation for the postseason and will want to rest their workhorse relievers because they did not pick a starter yet.


This suggests that we might see a number of pitchers from the bottom of the staff in this one. The Pittsburgh Pirates will win to a predicted score of 5-3.
