St. Louis is 6-0 as a favorite, 17-5 in their last 22 home games, and 1-6 in Miller’s last seven home starts. Colorado is 14-44 as an underdog, 10-43 in their last 53 road games, and 1-6 in Morales’ last seven road starts. Colorado is 8-21 in their last 29 games with St. Louis.
I don’t love Miller at night but he’s the better option here and the Cardinals are the pick.
