The Milwaukee Brewers will host the St. Louis Cardinals for the first of their three-game divisional set this Friday from American Family Field. Milwaukee and St. Louis each won four meetings between each other last season.

Cardinals Betting Preview

St. Louis comes in at 2-4 after being swept by Atlanta. The Cardinals trailed the Braves throughout the third matchup, and lost by three, 5-2. The St. Louis offense is 4.83 scoring runs per game, while batting .324, with a .380 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 5.33 ERA, with a 1.57 WHIP. Nolan Gorman and Nolan Arenado have both recorded hits in each game so far this season, while Paul Goldschmidt leads the Cards in batting (.450). 

Jack Flaherty (1-0, 0.00, 4 Ks) will start for St. Louis. The seventh-year pitcher looked healthy in his season debut, tossing five shutout innings and earning the decision. 

Brewers Betting Preview

Milwaukee is 5-1 after sweeping New York at home. The Brewers stole the final game in the bottom of the ninth to beat the Mets by one, 7-6. The Milwaukee offense is 6.33 scoring runs per game, while batting .281, with a .371 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 2.72 ERA, with a 1.06 WHIP. Brian Anderson has recorded a hit in each of his first six games with Milwaukee, and he leads the Brew Crew in homes (3) and RBI (10).

Brandon Woodruff (1-0, 1.50 ERA, 8 Ks) will take the mound for Milwaukee. The seventh-year pitcher looked strong in his season debut at Wrigley Field versus Chicago by striking out eight in six innings to earn the decision.

St. Louis vs Milwaukee Trends

St. Louis is 3-3 against the spread this season, with a 3-3 over/under record. Milwaukee is 4-2 ATS this year, with a 4-2 O/U record.

Corey's Free Pick

Two of the top lineups in the NL will face off this weekend, and I think the Brew Crew comes out strong in game one with Brandon Woodruff on the mound. Milwaukee has it going at the plate right now, and after tossing seven walks in game one, Jack Flaherty might struggle with this lineup on the road. It may cut close, so roll with Milwaukee’s moneyline Friday night.
