Yankees at Cardinals picks and predictions

Prediction

Cardinals 5, Yankees 4

Money line

The Cards are on a roll, and there is more to like about Montgomery.

German is coming off 90 pitches in his last, and he's backed by a Yankee bullpen that has fallen from what were lofty heights the first 3 months of the season.

TAKE ST. LOUIS (-115).

Run line/Against the spread

PASS. The Redbirds plus 1 1/2 is pricey and doesn't make as much sense with the Over lean.

Over/Under

On a warm and humid night in St. Louis - and with a couple fly-ballers on the mound -BACK THE OVER 8.5 (-120).
