On Monday the free play is on the St. Louis Cardinals. Game 951 at 7:05 eastern. The Cardinals fit a nice system that plays on certain road favorites off a home favored win by 5 or more runs vs an opponent that is off a home dog win. St. Louis has taken 5 of the 6 games this season. On Monday nights the Cards have won 10 of 12 this season. The Pirates have lost 16 of 21 in August and are averaging just 2 runs per game the past week. Look for St. Louis to take game 1 of the series tonight. On Monday I have a Deep card that features the MLB Divisional Total of the Month backed with a 100% Totals system as well as 2 MLB Dogs with bite that will win outright. Both are backed with dog systems that are well over .500. I also have a side play in the NFL game. Those looking for an addtional free pick I will have one on the Monday night radio show at 7:30 eastern at 88.9 For the free play take the St. Louis Cardinals. RV
