Friday night we have what might be a preview of a playoff matchup between two divisional winners in the National League, when the St. Louis Cardinals head west to take on the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Dodgers have long since clinched a playoff spot and the NL West Division title, while the Cardinals have the ability to lock up the NL Central this weekend.

The Los Angeles Dodgers will have Andrew Heaney on the mound, while the Cardinals will counter with Jose Quintana. Heaney has a 3-2 record with a 2.66 ERA this season, while Quintana is 5-6 with a 3.16 ERA for the Cardinals. Pitchers from both sides will have tough matchups, as both lineups have all-stars in them. The Cardinals will throw Paul Goldschmidt, who is still in the running for the NL Triple Crown race. For the Dodgers, they go a bit deeper with Mookie Betts, Trea Turner, and Freddie Freeman in the heart of their order. The Dodgers are favored, as they are against pretty much every team they face, but we are taking them to cover the -1.5 run spread Friday night.

Tip Reasoning

Key Stat: Dodgers are hitting .259 as a team

  • The Dodgers have a slugging percentage of .449
  • Cardinals are hitting .253 as a team this season
  • Goldschmidt is hitting .321 on the season

Our second bet for the Cardinals-Dodgers matchup Friday night is the Over/Under. Currently, the Over/Under is sitting at 8.5 runs. Both teams have solid pitchers on the mound, but will they be able to contain the other side’s lineup throughout the entire game? The Dodgers have arguably more depth in their lineup than any team in baseball, while the Cardinals have depth too, but they are more dependent on their team’s MVP, Paul Goldschmidt. Because of the talent that will be at-bat tonight, we are taking the Over 8.5 runs for Cardinals-Dodgers.
