Online Baseball Betting Odds:
Los Angeles Dodgers
The Dodgers enter tonight’s action sporting an 8-4 record that ranks them No. 1 overall in the NL West. But with the San Diego Padres being just one game behind Los Angeles, it’s clear the Dodgers need a win tonight in order to maintain the status quo. Looking over tonight’s odds however, it’s clear the online baseball betting odds don’t think Los Angeles can get the job done. Nevertheless, the Dodgers are tasking Kenta Maeda with the starting job tonight. Maeda is 2-0 so far this season and has a 3.09 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP to his name.
All things considered, it’s very surprising to see Los Angeles struggle so severely against St. Louis. After all, the Dodgers currently rank 2nd in the league in runs, second in team batting average and 1st in on base percentage. But their pitching does rank 17th in the MLB in team ERA and 10th in team WHIP. Notwithstanding that weakness, St. Louis has been beating the Dodgers by shutting them out offensively, not necessarily running up the score against them.
Players to Watch: AJ Pollock (1 HR, 9 RBI, .275 BA), Cody Bellinger (7 HR, 19 RBI, .440 BA), and Justin Turner (0 HR, 7 RBI, .295 BA).
St. Louis Cardinals
The Cardinals fly into tonight’s matchup flashing a 6-5 record that ranks them 2nd overall in the NL Central. After picking up the last two games against the Dodgers, St. Louis enter on a 3 game winning streak. Looking over the numbers, it’s unquestionably clear that the strength of this team lies in their pitching. At the present time the Cardinals rank 10th in the league in team ERA, 20th in WHIP and 9th in team BAA. While that might not be that impressive, it still beats out their batting numbers. With that in mind, it’s explicitly clear that the Cardinals should not be getting the better of Los Angeles. Tonight the Cardinals will be sending Jack Flaherty to the mound. Flaherty is making his first start of the season and boasts a 3.86 ERA and a 1.71 WHIP.
Players to Watch: Yadier Molina (0 HR, 4 RBI, .205 BA), Paul DeJong (3 HR, 7 RBI, .295 BA), and Matt Carpenter (1 HR, 3 RBI, .214 BA).
