Great American BallparkSt. Louis Cardinals vs. Cincinnati Reds Monday Free MLB Pick: It’s Labor Day, and that means there is plenty of big time baseball on the docket for the holiday. The day starts off on the MLB Network, where the Cincinnati Reds are going to try to close the gap on the St. Louis Cardinals in a battle of aces on the bump. Cincy is deservedly a -110 favorite on the MLB odds, and we are set to make our baseball picks on it on this holiday.

MLB Odds at BetOWI (150% Deposit Bonus): Cardinals +102 / Reds -110 (Total: 7.5)

The Cardinals have somehow managed to hold on to the lead in the NL Central with the Pirates, but we still have some big time issues with the way that they are playing right now, especially on the road against good teams. They haven’t won a series against a team with a winning record on the road since June 7-9 (ironically, here in Cincinnati), and in that stretch, they are a pitiful 5-12. Yes, St. Louis has RHP Adam Wainwright on the bump in this one, but he was bombed for nine runs in just two frames in his last outing (again, ironically against these Reds), and he has a lot of work to do to get back to his winning ways. RHP Mat Latos has generally been a rock this year for Cincinnati, and if there is a man that can win this game and take the Reds back to within just a few games in the NL Central, this is the one. We think that this is going to be a big series for the hosts, and it starts with a Labor Day licking of the Cards.

Cardinals vs. Reds Free Pick for September 2nd: Cincinnati Reds -110
