  • Ron Raymond’s Premium Picks: Purchase Here

The St. Louis Cardinals are slight favourites in this one at -130 and Vegas clearly has no faith in the pitchers in this game with a O/U line stuck at 9.5.  Both teams have struggled lately with the Cubs dropping 2 out of 3 to the Astros, and the Cardinals losing three straight.

Today’s Pitching Preview

There’s not much to say about Yu Darvish right now.  Everyone knows what he’s capable of, the questions simply resides around whether or not he can find it again.  The Cubs are surprisingly 5-6 when Darvish starts and should be worse considering how badly he gets knocked around.  Mile Mikolas on the hand leaves the Red Birds in good hands often as the Cardinals are 4-2 when he starts.

The Chicago Cubs are coming off a 2-1 win over the Houston Astros and are currently coming off a 3 Game Road Trip. Furthermore, the Chicago Cubs are currently 31-23 SU on the season and are coming off a 1 game winning streak. Plus, the St Louis Cardinals are currently 27-28 SU on the season, won their last game over the Philadelphia Phillies and allowed 3 runs against in their last game. Also the Cardinals be playing the Chicago Cubs on Saturday.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? (NBA,NHL & MLB)
C.O.W. = (Chances of Winning) – The ‘C.O.W.’ percentage is based on a teams win/lost record using their short and long-term win/lost record. After we process it through our ‘math predictor’, we then provide a ‘CHANCES OF WINNING’ percentage for their next game, which let’s you know if there’s any value on betting that team.

C.O.G.O. = (Chances Game Going OVER) – The ‘C.O.G.O.’ percentage is based on both teams OVER/UNDER record, using both teams short and long-term OVER/UNDER records. After we process it through our ‘math predictor’, we then provide a ‘CHANCES OF COVERING’ percentage for that game, which let’s you know if there’s any value on the OVER in that game.
*Note: If there’s a 60% chance of the game going OVER, that means, there’s a 40% chance of the game going UNDER.

DMVI = (Daily Market Value Index) – The DMVI is our researched and calculated line compared to the bookmaker’s line. When calculating the DMVI, we look for the margin of error between the bookmaker’s line, the final result of a game and then produce the value of what the line should be in the next game for both teams. The DMVI is a tool to find value vs. the current line.

VI = (Value Index) – The Value Index is the current psychology of the betting public, based on a teams 7-game cycle.

  • BULLISH = Team is either (7-0, 6-1, or 5-2) in their last 7 games.
  • NEUTRAL = Team is either (3-4 or 4-3) in their last 7 games.
  • BEARISH = Team is either (0-7, 1-6 or 2-5) in their last 7 games.


L.O.A. = (Law of Average) – The “Law of Average” edge is based on the 50/50 theory. Play on a team that lost against the spread (ATS) or straight up (SU) in their last game, vs. a team that won against the spread (ATS) or straight up (SU) in their last game.
