, , , , , , , , , , . Moneyline analysis The Milwaukee Brewers take on the St. Louis Cardinals during the second game of a 3-game set. Today’s slate includes a variety of games, but this is the game to be watching. Only 1.5 games separates the Cardinals from Milwaukee in first place in NL Central. St. Louis won a big win against the Brewer last night, moving them up from being 0.5 games behind Milwaukee to 1.5 games. Both teams will be determined by the outcome of these next games. The Cardinals will lead the Brewers by 3.5 games if they win, while the Brewers will be in first place with a series victory. However, the Brewers will still have sole control of the title, and they can take the Series by only 0.5 games.

The Cardinals 3-1 win last night was due in large part to Jordan Montgomery, their starting pitcher. Montgomery was able to throw six innings without a score and struck out eight. The Cardinals today will bring another strong pitcher to the plate. Montgomery isn’t as strong as him. Veteran Adam Wainwright will be the man of the hour. Wainwright is 40 years old and in the last few seasons of his career, but he is still putting up surprisingly good numbers for someone in his twilight years. With a record of 8-8, he has a 3. 42 ERA and 1. 24 WHIP. Although his ERA isn’t very high, his record of games won is remarkable. Wainwright averages just over six innings per start in an age when pitchers often get pulled.

The Brewers have a much better pitcher in Corbin Burnes. Burnes throws a little more than six innings per game, but puts up the most impressive numbers in the league. His 2. 45 ERA is the sixth-best in the MLB, his 175 strikeouts are the second-best, and his 0. 94 WHIP is the fourth-best in baseball.

These two teams share similar bullpens so their starting pitchers will make the difference. Milwaukee has better starting pitching, so I’m picking them to win the game at home. This is a battle for first place in the division between two teams, regardless of which team wins. Expect high emotions.

Over/Under analysis

The over/under runs are at a very low 7.5 runs. The pitching match that is expected to ensue in this tightly contested game may be the reason for this.

I don’t expect it to be high scoring, so I will go with the under. These teams are both skilled at hitting and average well over four runs per game. However, they only scored four runs last night. The under is the more likely bet when you consider last night’s performances and the fact Milwaukee’s ace gets the start.

Milwaukee Brewers vs St. Louis Cardinals Predictions

This will be a fun game to watch. This is a game that will be entertaining. These two teams are in the same division and are fighting for the Playoff spot. Although I won’t be there, I bet there will be a great deal of energy at Busch Stadium.

The situation is going to make for an exciting game. However, the pitching duel could only enhance that. Corbin Burnes just came off an impressive six-inning performance that only allowed one earned run. Burnes was awarded the NL Cy Young Award in 2013 and is back for the title this year. Adam Wainwright, a tougher Cardinals hurler, will challenge Burnes. Wainwright may have lost one step from his peak a few years ago but is still reliable. Waino, affectionately called “Waino”, has an 8-8 record. However, his 3. 42 ERA has helped keep St. Louis in many games.

That’s enough about pitching. Now let’s discuss the hitters. This game, I will be looking out for Nolan Arenado. You should not be surprised to see him hit another home run in this game. Willy Adames and Rowdy Tellez are the Brewers’ stars. Tellez is putting together his best season yet and has 71 RBIs, and Adames has a knack for getting hits at the right time; he has 64 RBIs in 89 games. Both teams’ major hitters will be responsible for most runs.

Bet on the Brewers moneyline and the Cardinals covering the spread.
