Sportsbook.com Line & Total: St. Louis -135, Milwaukee +125 & 8.5

The Cardinals can move one game closer to avoiding a return trip to Milwaukee when they host the Brewers for Game 4 of the NLCS Thursday night.<P>

With St. Louis’ Game 3 win, the Brewers’ road losing streak ran to four and they fell to 39-45 (-8.1 Units) away from home of the year. But this was a team that went 4-4 in St. Louis during the regular season, and Game 4 starter Randy Wolf has had back-to-back excellent road starts against the Cards. He and Cardinals righty Kyle Lohse make the pitching matchup in this game very even, especially with both bullpens throwing well.

Wolf (13-10, 3.69 ERA in the regular season) was knocked around in Arizona in his Game 4 NLDS start, allowing seven runs and 11 base runners, including two home runs, in just three innings. It was a third straight ugly outing for Wolf, who’s now allowed 17 runs and 34 base runners over his past 14.2 innings (10.43 ERA, 2.32 WHIP).

But the lefty threw a great game in St. Louis a month ago, holding the Cardinals to one run over eight innings in a victory. He also threw eight innings of one-run ball in a victory at Busch Stadium in August and has won four of his past five starts in St. Louis.

Lohse (14-8, 3.39 ERA in the regular season) finished the regular season strong, but did not pitch well in the NLDS, allowing six runs (five earned) over 5.1 innings in Philadelphia.

Lohse’s overall track record against Milwaukee is not good (4-8, 4.89 ERA in 17 career starts) but the results in St. Louis have been more encouraging. His six innings of shutout ball on September 6 was the Cards’ first Busch Stadium win over the Brewers with Lohse on the mound. But he’s made five quality starts in six outings against the Brewers in St. Louis, posting a 2.77 ERA and 1.10 WHIP in these 39 innings against Milwaukee.
