McCarthy was shaky in his last outing and although he couldn’t put in a quality start, he was able to pick up his sixth win of the season in a 7-3 victory over the Baltimore Orioles. He went five innings giving up five hits, three earned runs, and two home runs while he struck out five and walked none.
McCarthy has been a tad ineffective in his last three outings (15.1 innings) as he’s given up 18 hits, nine hits, and a high six home runs. Although he’s been getting hit up, it is still encouraging to see that he posted a solid 13:2 K:BB in that span.
Atlanta has been playing losing baseball in the past week only winning two of their six contests. During that span their lineup is slashing .275/.358/.378 to go with 19 extra-base hits and 29 RBI.
St. Louis Cardinals
Weaver was solid in his last outing for his standards as he was able to pick up his fourth win of the season in an 8-2 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers. He went 5.2 innings giving up five hits, two earned runs, and one home run while he struck out nine and walked two.
Before his last outing Weaver had been struggling in three consecutive outings putting in 15.1 innings of work while he gave up 22 hits, 12 earned runs, and two home runs. He also had a porous 11:10 K:BB ratio in that span as well so it is encouraging to see the nine strikeouts.
St. Louis has been playing solid baseball in the past week as they’ve won four of their six contests. During that span their lineup is slashing .239/.320/.401 to go with 18 extra-base hits and 27 RBI.

4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Cardinals -1.5
Weaver has the stuff to be good in this league, and although he has been struggling, he last outing was promising enough for me to trust him in this outing. McCarthy hasn’t been too effective and I like St. Louis potent lineup to have their way with him. Back the home team to cover the run line.
