Wainwright allowed one earned run, six hits and no walks with five strikeouts across seven innings in a no-decision against the Chicago Cubs Wednesday.
He has actually faced the Indians this season yielding just two runs, three hits and no walks with six strikeouts across seven innings in a win June 9 in St. Louis.

Money line (ML)
The CARDINALS (-110) are the play in this interleague opener against the Indians (-110). It’s all about pitching, and Waino dominated the Tribe earlier this season. Quantrill pitched well last time, and this one will be tough, but look for the road team to win it here.

Run line/Against the spread (ATS)
CARDINALS -1.5 (+140) is a great value on the run line. The Indians +1.5 (-165) have had difficulty scoring runs lately posting just 3.6 runs per game across the past 10 outings. Wainwright shut them down in early July in a start in St. Louis. Look for the Cleveland bats to remains cool.
The UNDER 9 (-105) is the play here, as again, the Indians have had trouble pushing runs across the plate lately. The Cardinals have allowed three or fewer runs in six of the past 11 outings, and they’ll do it again here.
