I like the braves tonight for a few reasons. I often target pitchers who I feel are going to face regression but I feel like Julio is going to progress this game because the line up of the cards favors his game. The first three batters in the cards LU have high ISO and that's where he seems to struggle the most but he also holds righties to a .269 wOBA. He's facing 6 righties and he strikes them out at a 26.5% rate compared to the 19% rate he does to left handed bats. His control is always an issue but when he's on, he's on and I like this game for him. On the other side Wainwright has been getting tattooed by lefties and his velocity is down at this point in his career. I think the braves will get to him and I'll ride them as my play today80%

Wainwright has struggled at the start of this season but not completely lost. I think facing the braves tonight he gets a chance to settle in. Teheran on the other side of the coin has had lapses in control and he is still battling with that. I look for the Cardinals to take advantage of it.60%

This should be a fun pitching battle, but Im giving a slight edge to Wainwright and Cards at even money in what should be a close game.

Free Betting Prediction: St. Louis will Win and the Total will go Under .
After getting off to a hot start, the St. Louis Cardinals look to be in a funk. They've dropped 10 of their last 13 games and will lean on Adam Wainwright to right the ship tonight vs the Atlanta Braves. The Braves counter with Julio Teheran, who owns a 3.00 ERA in three home starts this season, but Atlanta has been hit-or-miss at Turner Field with an 11-11 SU record in 22 games in Georgia.The Braves opened as slight -105 favorites with a total of 10.

St. Louis Post-Dispatch: Cards trampled by Braves 10-2, lose fourth consecutive series
ATLANTA -- Manager Mike Shildt almost always looks for a positive spin he can put on a Cardinals defeat, if there is one. And there have been plenty lately, 11 losses in 14 games, which would test even college graduate Shildt's ample vocabulary.
There was little upside apparent to the naked eye Thursday night, for instance. Poor starting pitching. Equally as unsteady relief pitching. Scant offense. A couple of grounders that could have been had scooted by for run-scoring singles.
There was that jumping catch that center fielder Harrison Bader made near the wall to end the eighth.
Talking Chop: Braves seek series victory in finale against Cardinals
Though Tuesday evening was an adventure in a negative sense for the Atlanta Braves, Wednesday night was delightful. Mike Soroka was fantastic, Austin Riley produced a home run in his Major League debut and, on the whole, things went quite well for the Braves against the St. Louis Cardinals. On Thursday evening, Atlanta will look to follow that up behind Julio Teheran, as the team seeks a second straight win and, by proxy, a series victory.
Teheran arrives on the heels of back-to-back quality outings, providing some level of optimism before first pitch on Thursday evening.
Fansided: Three takeaways: Atlanta Braves, Mike Foltynewicz hammered by Cardinals
Why don't we pretend like this one never happened for the Atlanta Braves?
In my series preview, I said this was the game to be worried about because Mike Foltynewicz has been struggling (to say the least) and the Cardinals have had significant success off the right-hander.
I was right, unfortunately.
Foltynewicz was hammered for eight earned runs on seven hits over 4.2 innings.
Marcel Ozuna got the party started early with a three-run home run in the first inning, then Yadier Molina and Dexter Fowler also got in on the fun with bombs off Foltynewicz.
