The St. Louis Cardinals will start a three-game set with the Atlanta Braves this Monday from Busch Stadium. Atlanta won game one last nite after leading throughout the contest, 8-4. 

Braves Betting Preview

Atlanta is 3-1 after defeating St. Louis last night. The Braves hopped back into the win column after jumping on the Cards early, and they’ll look to double down here. Atlanta is batting .268 at the plate, with a 2.83 team ERA. Ozzie Albies has recorded a hit in each of the first four games, and he hit his first home run versus STL yesterday.

Dylan Dodd will make the start for Atlanta. This will be the first taste of action in the majors for the young left-handed pitcher, and he’ll have his hands full at Busch Stadium this Tuesday.

Cardinals Betting Preview

St. Louis comes in at 2-2 after losing to Atlanta last night. The Cardinals couldn’t overcome a fast start from the Braves, and they’ll look to avoid dropping a second straight here. St. Louis is batting .356 at the plate, with a 5.75 team ERA. Paul Goldschmidt has recorded multiple hits in all four games so far, and he homered against Atlanta yesterday.

Steven Matz will start for St. Louis. The ninth-year pitcher was solid in his first season with the Cards, despite missing a chunk of action. Matz went 5-3, with a 5.25 ERA, and 54 strikeouts. 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 3-1 against the spread this season, with a 2-2 over/under record. St. Louis is 3-1 ATS, with a 3-1 O/U record.

Corey's Free Pick

Dylan Dodd could end up becoming Atlanta’s 2023 version of Spencer Strider, but this isn’t an ideal first game test. With St. Louis coming off a loss, I feel good trusting them to win this game at home against a first-year pitcher. Nolan Arenado, Paul Goldschmidt and company should be able to muster up enough offense here and there’s some security with their ML, so back the Cards here at home.
