The St. Louis Cardinals will host the Los Angeles Angels for game two of their three-game set this Wednesday from Busch Stadium. LAA took game one last night after a fast start, 5-1.
Angels Betting Preview
Los Angeles moved to 16-14 after defeating St. Louis. The Angels capitalized on the skidding Cards, and they’ll look to double up here. The LAA offense is scoring 5.63 runs per game, while batting .251, with a .330 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 3.77 ERA, with a 1.25 WHIP. Mike Trout went off for two homers and five RBI in the game two loss to the Brewers, and he leads LAA in batting (.297). Shohei Ohtani is right behind him at .294 after producing their lone win over the Brew Crew. Hunter Renfroe only went 1/12 in Milwaukee, but he still leads the team in RBI (20).
Shohei Ohtani (4-0, 1.85 ERA, 46 Ks) will get the ball for Los Angeles. The two-way superstar surprisingly found some trouble with Oakland last week, but he’s been in full control on the mound this season. Ohtani has cleared eight strikeouts in four of five starts, and he’s only given up two runs in three road appearances this season. Shotime is also hitting .294, with seven homers and 18 RBI on the year.
Cardinals Betting Preview
St. Louis fell to 10-20 after losing to Los Angeles. The Cardinals have now dropped nine of their last ten games, and they have to fix things swiftly. The St. Louis' offense is scoring 3.46 runs per game, while batting .258, with a .329 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 4.47 ERA, with a 1.44 WHIP. Paul Goldschmidt has a hit in eight of the last nine games, and he leads the Cards with a .304 batting average. Nolan Gorman leads the team in RBI (22), despite failing to produce one in eight straight contests.
Miles Mikolas (1-1, 5.97 ERA, 29 Ks) will start for St. Louis. The eleventh-year pitcher finally went and delivered a quality start last weekend in the Bay versus San Fran. Mikolas struck out six over 6.1 scoreless innings, and he’ll attempt to build on that in a return to Busch Stadium here.
Anaheim vs St. Louis Trends
Los Angeles is 14-16 against the spread this season, with a 13-15-2 O/U record. St. Louis is 12-18 ATS this year, with a 12-17-1 over/under record.
Corey's Free Pick
St. Louis’ recent stretch of play is alarming with Shotime set to take the mound Wednesday, and I like leaning on a strong outing from him again her. Aside from the start against Oakland last week, Ohtani has been in peak form, while the Cards find themselves in a free fall early. Even with Miles Mikolas coming off of his best start of the season, trust Ohtani and the Halos here on the road.
