Ryu DodgersLos Angeles Dodgers vs. St. Louis Cardinals Thursday Free MLB Pick: The Los Angeles Dodgers might no longer be in search of the longest road winning streak in the history of professional baseball, but they are still in search of the postseason in the National League. They continue that quest in the last game of a four-game series against the St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium on Thursday night.

MLB Odds: Dodgers -101 / Cardinals -109 (Total: 8.5)

Pretty much any chance that we get to make the Dodgers a 50/50 proposition, we’re going to take it. LA is simply on fire, and that one loss to the Cards on Tuesday isn’t going to deter us. We know that every night out there, this is a team that has at least a 55% chance of winning any given game, even on the road, and even in the toughest of environments. RHP Carols Martinez is considered one of the crown jewels of the farm system in St. Louis, and he is going to be making his MLB debut as a starter in this game. Normally speaking, these young pitchers for the Cardinals are ones to back, but in this situation, we just aren’t buying in. LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu has led the Dodgers to wins in each of his last seven starts, four of which have come on the road. The southpaw is being picked up by his team, and he is doing everything that he can to lead the Dodger Nation to victory. Expect to see yet another game of at least five runs out of the Dodgers, and if that turns out to be the case, Ryu will make sure that those runs stand up.
