Latest Odds : ATL -105 Total 8
The Cardinals are definitely looking to be a team that can bounce the Braves out of the playoffs. However, the last game between the Cardinals and the Braves was a battle that saw the Cardinal come out on top in the 10th inning and that was a tremendous challenge for the Cardinals who actually ended up letting the Braves get back into the game late in the game.
Heading back to Atlanta could really help the team out, though, as the Braves are better playing at home than on the road. What else can help the Braves out at home is the fact the Cardinals are a team that has had some struggles on the season so far when playing on the road. Those road struggles is what really cost the Cardinals early on in the series here.
