MLB odds: Cardinals-Dodgers ratios
St. John’s St. Louis Cardinals +1.5 (-102) Los Angeles Dodgers -1.5 (-118) More than 8 victories (-115) Less than 8 wins (-105)
Why the Cardinals can close thegap.
The St. Louis Cardinals are 31-24, just one game behind the Chicago Cubs for the lead in the NL Central division. The Cardinals have won five of their last seven games and are certainly a serious contender for the National League title. With a full roster and a good pitching staff, this team is well-positioned to take a big step forward in 2021. The Cardinals are the better offensive team and have a better record against the spread, 18-12 on the road this season. The Cardinals send right-hander Carlos Martinez into the deciding game. Martinez is 3-4 with a 4.22 ERA in his first 10 starts of the season. In his last start against the Arizona Diamondbacks, the right-hander pitched six innings and scored three runs. Martinez faces a tough test against a Dodgers team that has scored the second most runs in baseball this season.
Why the Dodgers can close the gap on.
The Los Angeles Dodgers have started the season with mixed success, they are now 32-23. After losing the second game of this series by a puck, the Dodgers have lost 13 of the 20 games in which everything was decided by a puck. As the defending champions in 2021, Los Angeles will surely have the best version of any opponent. The Dodgers are grateful to have this game in Los Angeles, as they are 18-10 on their home field this year. The Dodgers are a club that has scored the second most runs and allowed the eighth most runs in the majors so far. Los Angeles will release Walker Buehler for the game. Bueller is 3-0 with a 2.66 ERA after 11 starts this season. The Cy Young candidate struck out 62 batters in 64.10 innings. In the last game against the Giants, the Dodgers’ righthander threw six innings and scored one run. Bueller has had plenty of success against a Cardinals team in the past. Nolan Arenado has hit just .172 in 29 appearances with the right-hander.
Ultimate Cardinal Dodgers Prediction and Selection
Many will be inclined to cheer for the Dodgers in this game, and rightfully so. Walker Buehler is one of the best pitchers in baseball, and he had great success against this Cardinals team. St. John’s St. Louis looks like a very different team this season, but they shouldn’t shy away from the Dodgers’ strong ace. With Carlos Martinez in the hot seat, St. John’s is the place to be. Louis can only assume they need to put points on the board to stay in the tiebreaker. The Dodgers have scored the second most runs in baseball and have an advantageous game. I like the odds in a game that should have the Dodgers’ first offense and the Cards’ last offense. FINAL PREDICTION FOR CARDINALS VS DODGERS GAME : More than 8 wins (-115)
