The St. Louis Cardinals and the Dodgers meet for game two of their series from St. Louis tonight. All odds for this game can be found at Top Bet sportsbook.
The Cardinals are fighting to stay in contention for the playoffs, but did little to help their cause with a loss on Monday. Joe Kelly did not pitch bad for the Cardinals, but they could not muster enough on offense to get the win. Tonight the Cardinals will start Adam Wainwright who looks like he may be rounding into form coming back from injury. Overall he is pitching to a 4.42 ERA in 116 innings of work.
The Dodgers look like they’re getting back on their early-season track and are making their playoff push. Chad Billingsley looked good on the mound yesterday returning from the DL and tonight the Dodgers will give the ball to Clayton Kershaw, their ace. Kershaw has struck out and impressive 132 batters in 134 innings of work this season.
St. Louis is 5-1 in their last six home games, 5-1 in their last six home games against a left handed starter, and 2-5 in Wainwright’s last seven starts. Los Angeles is 5-0 in their last five games overall, 6-11 in their last 17 road games, and 6-2 in Kershaw’s last eight starts against the N.L. Central. Los Angeles is 9-23 in their last 32 meeting sin St. Louis.
We really like Kershaw to have a great game tonight and think Wainwright is peaking at the right time. Give us the under for total runs scored in this game but before betting read a sports book review.
