Los Angeles Dodgers vs. St. Louis Cardinals MLB Prediction:
I look for the Dodgers to start off the season in good fashion. I feel they will be too much for the Cardinals to handle.
Los Angeles is the better team and I feel they will take care of business. I do not have much confidence backing the Red Birds here.
I feel that Scherzer will keep up his good pitching and the Dodgers will do enough against Mikolas.
I like the Dodgers straight up and the total to go over 7 runs.
