This is an 8* play OVER St. Louis-Washington

Max Scherzer is from St. Louis, so getting to face the Cardinals will always hold a special meaning for him. But the bottom line is that in 2019 Scherzer has not looked like the same pitcher we're used to seeing. His first month of the season produced a 1-5 team start record as well as a 4.12 ERA. That the Nationals are 0-4 at home with him on the mound is really surprising. Now Scherzer has pitched better in D.C. than his record would suggest. He's also still striking out plenty of hitters. Regardless of how well Scherzer pitches Wednesday, we feel this game is set to go Over due to the Nationals hitters facing Miles Mikolas, who has not been very sharp for the Cardinals. Six starts have brought a 5.29 ERA for Mikolas and the Over is 5-1. The road is where he's been at his worst as the Over is 3-0 and he has a 6.60 ERA and 1.53 WHIP. In three games vs. Washington, Mikokas has a 6.43 ERA. Both offenses are averaging more than 5.0 runs/game this season. This should be an easy Over as St. Louis is 14-3 Over after giving up two runs or less in its last game. Play OVER St. Louis-Washington
