Cardinals Betting Preview

St. Louis comes in at 2-5 after losing to Milwaukee last night. The Cardinals have lost four straight games, and with their next five games being on the road, they’ll look to stop the bleeding early. The St. Louis offense is 4.83 scoring runs per game, while batting .305, with a .368 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 5.23 ERA, with a 1.65 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 (.391). 

Jordan Montgomery (1-0, 5.40, 3 Ks) will start for St. Louis. The seventh-year pitcher held his own versus a tough Toronto lineup, only allowing three runs in five innings, and earning the decision.

Corey's Free Pick

It’s very hard to ignore the type of momentum both teams carry into game two here. Milwaukee has found a groove early, while St. Louis just can’t seem to figure things out right now. The Cards lead the league in batting average, but after dropping four straight it remains to be seen if they can be trusted as road favorites against a streaking Brew Crew. Spot Milwaukee the runs for this NL Central battle.

Corey’s Pick Brewers +1.5
