10* TOTAL COACHS CORNER (OFF SUCCESSFUL 2-1 SATURDAY!)
(MLB) St. Louis vs. San Diego,
05/16/2021 7:08 PM, Score: 3 - 5
Total: 7.00 | -107.00
The set-up: The first two games of this series have flown "over" the number, but a couple of red hot starters collide in the third game, and I expect runs to be at a premium. Kwang Hyun Kim (1-0, 2.74 ERA) gae up one run and struck out six over six innings in unfortunate no-decision to the Brewers in his last outing. Over 20 innings of work he's allowed just four runs.
The pick: Ryan Weathers (2-1, 0.81) has been superb whenever the Padres have needed him. Dinelson Lamet is set to come in if Weathers falters as well. Finally, note that the Padres have seen the total go "under" the number in seven of their last nine after playing to back-to-back "unders" at home. This number is high.
This is a 10* TOTAL COACHS CORNER on the UNDER Cardinals/Padres.
