  • The Cardinals and Braves will settle their NLDS series on Wednesday.
  • The Action Network's tools reveal how sharps are betting this moneyline.

Ah, Game 5. The best two words in sports (besides Game 7, of course).

After a walk-off win at home on Monday, the Cardinals forced this afternoon’s elimination game in Atlanta (5:02 p.m. ET) and will get to send second-half magician Jack Flaherty to the mound.

Still, most bettors aren’t convinced that St. Louis can pull off back-to-back wins to close out this series. Fifty-nine percent of bets have landed on Mike Foltynewicz and the Braves, who finished six games up on the Cardinals in the regular season.

This game isn’t attracting just recreational bets, though.

Sharps are opinionated on this game as well, as evidenced by money percentages, a bit of line movement and, of course, Sports Insights Bet Signals.
