The St. Louis Cardinals will host the Milwaukee Brewers for game one of their divisional series this Friday from Busch Stadium. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Brewers vs Cardinals Prediction.

Milwaukee Brewers Preview

Milwaukee comes in at 11-6 after defeating San Diego, 1-0. The Brewers used a strong pitching effort to snap a three-game skid, and they’ll look to build on that result here in divisional play this weekend. Milwaukee is batting .188, while scoring 3.6 runs per game, with a team ERA of 3.60.

Milwaukee’s Player Props

  • William Contreras has recorded at least one RBI in each of the Brewers' last four road games.
  • William Contreras has scored at least one run in each of the Brewers' last nine Friday night games.
  • Christian Yelich has recorded at least one hit in each of his last eight appearances after not playing the previous day.

St. Louis Cardinals Preview

St. Louis comes in at 9-10 after losing to Oakland on the road, 6-3. The Cardinals couldn’t get anything going down the stretch, and they’ll try to get back over the .500 line here against the Brew Crew. St. Louis is batting .219, while scoring 3.84 runs per game, with a team ERA of 3.99.

St. Louis’ Player Props

  • Willson Contreras has hit a home run in three of his last four appearances against NL Central opponents.
  • Nolan Arenado has recorded at least one RBI in seven of his last eight Friday appearances with the Cardinals as underdogs.
  • Brendan Donovan has scored a run in each of his last four home appearances against opponents that held a winning record.
  • Kyle Gibson has recorded five or more strikeouts in six of his last seven appearances against NL Central opponents.

Milwaukee’s Team Facts 

  • The Brewers have won each of their last 10 Friday night games.

St. Louis’ Team Facts

  • The Cardinals have trailed after 3 innings in each of their last five Friday night home games.

Brewers vs Cardinals Prediction 

It’s something about the Brew Crew on Friday nights, and with Freddy Peralta set to take the hill at Busch Stadium, I’m comfortable leaning on another strong effort from him here in game one. The Cardinals haven’t been the sharpest on the offensive end early on, and if Freddy P comes out in lockdown mode, it should come down to a matter of run support. The Contreras’ catcher parlay will be appealing this weekend, but let’s sway Milwaukee’s way for game one of this divisional series.
