Los Angeles will send their ace to the mound on Tuesday night in the hopes that he can get past his ugly post-season history to move the series back to California. Clayton Kershaw has been unbeatable in the regular season, but is not a playoff performer in the least bit. He has a career post-season record of 1-4 with an ERA of 5.20. Shelby Miller will take the mound for St. Louis, which is just one win from the NLCS yet again, which is why we like the Cardinals.
Cardinals hoping for celebration at home on Tuesday
St. Louis will ask Shelby Miller to send the Cardinals back to the NLCS as they look to hold off Los Angeles in this series. The Cardinals moved a step closer with the victory in game three on Monday night behind a two-run homer from second baseman Kolten Wong, who was the scapegoat of the playoffs last year for St. Louis. This will be the first playoff start of Miller’s career after pitching in relief last year.
Dodgers down to their final hope in Kershaw tonight
Los Angeles is pinning its playoff hopes on Clayton Kershaw once again, and he has yet to bring anything to the table for the Dodgers in the post-season during his career. In his last three playoff starts, all against St. Louis, Kershaw has an ERA of 8.10. His game one start was going swimmingly until he imploded in the seventh inning, allowing the Cardinals to rally for the lead and the victory.
Los Angeles and St. Louis meet for game four of their NLDS on Tuesday night in Missouri. These two teams have met quite often in the playoffs over the past couple of years and this series has been very exciting. We will place our wager at TopBet.eu, where the Cardinals are underdogs at home. We still like St. Louis to win, which is why we will bet 10 percent of our bankroll on the UNDER 6.5 total runs scored.
