Coming off of another positive day in which we landed the Cincinnati Reds at massive odds, we go into the last few games of the season with a ton of momentum and a ton of profit. Here are your MLB Picks of the Day for Tuesday.

Cincinnati Reds vs St. Louis Cardinals

Cardinals Have the Incentive
Just because the St. Louis Cardinals (81-75) have all of the incentive in this game as they're 1 1/2 games behind the New York Mets and 1 games behind the San Francisco Giants for a wild card berth, doesn't mean that they're going to win this game and the Cincinnati Reds (66-90) are of great value. The Reds have won 3 straight and the Cards have lost 2 straight games. I'm inclined to go with the hot team which is the Reds in this case as this method of betting has provided me with a ton of success.

 

Wainwright Gets the Start
The starting pitching matchup is a little concerning as Adam Wainwright (12-9, 4.57 ERA) gives the Cardinals the clear cut advantage. This is a career 133-76 pitcher with a 3.15 ERA. Those are awfully impressive numbers, but Wainwright has seen a slight drop off in the last couple of seasons.

In his last 9 starts, Wainwright really hasn't pitched well as he's allowed 4 runs or more in 6 out of those 9 starts. Add in the fact that he's pitched 16 1/3 innings against Cincy and allowed 11 runs on 17 hits and I'm feeling a bit more confident in looking for the value in this game if we look at the MLB betting odds according to 5Dimes an A+ Rated Sportsbook.

 

Never In Doubt
We picked the Reds at long odds yesterday and mentioned the red hot season that Joey Votto was having. On cue, Votto slammed his 27th home run of the season in a 15-2 beating of the Cardinals. In this game, Adam Duvall and Brandon Phillips each had 4 hits apiece with Duvall picking up his 100th RBI of the season with a 4 run, 5 RBI game.

Add in the fact that Joey Votto continues to be red hot and get on base after a 2 for 4 performance in which he got on base 60 % of the time and that makes the Reds a real threat in this game. I had mentioned how Votto's ability to get on base was amazing at .435% and we can expect this Canadian superstar to continue to play well as he's established himself as one of the elite players in the majors.

N.Y. Mets vs Miami Marlins

The Shock Has Wore Off
The shock of the loss of Jose Fernandez has certainly not worn off for the Miami Marlins as they will never forget this pitching great. That said, the shock will have worn off for the New York Mets (83-74) as they have a wild card spot to secure.

Last night, it almost appeared as the result of the game was an after thought to New York as the Marlins handed them a 7-3 loss in a feel-good win that saw Dee Gordon blast his 1st home run of the season and 7th home run of his career in the first at bat for the Marlin since Fernandez's death. It was a very memorable moment, but today is a new day and the Mets should be a team possessed with Noah Syndergaard (13-9, 2.63 ERA) taking the mound.

 

Big Game For "Thor"?
The Mets have been lucky as their competitors for the wild card have been losing lately, but this is a big game for New York as their best pitcher, Noah Syndergaard, get's the start and he's coming off of disappointing outing against Atlanta in which he allowed 5 runs on 8 hits in 3 2/3 innings. That said, that's only one start and I expect Syndergaard to pitch well as he's been the bright star on this Mets pitching staff. Syndergaard has also held the Marlins in check this season, allowing just 3 runs in 14 innings pitched. The Mets have the right guy that they want getting the start and I expect the Marlins to come back down to earth. (as sad as the situation is)

 

Leader of the Mets
Most people are going to say that it's Yoenis Cespedes as he brings the power and the timely hitting.  I say it's the player that he shares a .283 batting average within Asdrubal Cabrera. Make no mistake about it; Asdrubal Cabrera is the MVP of this Mets squad (on the field and in the clubhouse).Cabrera has been red hot as of late, hitting .444 with a 3 HR and 12 RBI's in his last 27 at-bats. Cabrera also has a favorable matchup against Marlins starter Tom Koehler (9-12, 4.02 ERA). Against Koehler, Cabrera is a career 5 for 10 with 2 HR and 3 RBI. It's back to business tonight for the Amazins and I like them in this matchup for my MLB pick.
