The St. Louis Cardinals will start a three-game set with the Atlanta Braves this Monday from Busch Stadium. Atlanta won four of seven matchups last season, but St. Louis did win the last two meetings at home.
Braves Betting Preview
Atlanta is 2-1 after dropping the final of their three-game set to Washington. The Braves flamed out at the plate after giving up a big first inning to the Nats, and they’d fall by three, 4-1. Matt Olson homered twice in the game two win over Washington, and he could be in line for another big season.
Charlie Morton will get the call for Atlanta. The ageless wonder took a small step back after capturing the Cy Young Award in 2021, but he was still beyond serviceable. Uncle Charlie went 9-6, with a 4.34 ERA, and 205 strikeouts through 31 starts last season.
Cardinals Betting Preview
St. Louis comes in at 2-1 after dispatching Toronto in the final game of their set. The Cardinals came out and blitzed the Blue Jays early, scoring nine runs in the first four innings, and crushing to a five-run victory, 9-4. The Cards are getting it done early at the plate with production coming from all through the lineup, and second-year infielder Nolan Gorman leads the team in RBI (6) after homering twice Sunday.
Jake Woodford will start for St. Louis. The third-year pitcher may be making his move into the starting rotation this season after being one of the best spot pitchers in baseball last year, posting a 4-0 record, with a 2.23 ERA over 27 appearances.
Atlanta vs. St. Louis Trends
Atlanta is 2-1 against the spread this season, with a 2-1 over/under record. St. Louis is 3-0 ATS, with a 2-1 O/U record.
Corey's Free Pick
This spot puts a talented Cardinals team in another profitable position, and I like taking the shot with them here. Charlie Morton at 39 could still represent one of the more disciplined pitchers in the game, but the Cards have come out swinging, and they might not be silenced here. It should be a very good series, and possibly an NLCS preview, but roll the dice here with the worthy host in a profitable position. Take St. Louis to win Monday night.
