MLB Moneyline Odds: OFF
MLB RunLine Betting Odds: Phillies -1.5 , Cardinals +1.5
MLB Baseball Gambling Total: OFF
These are a couple of teams with enough talent to contend. Neither has gotten off to a great start to the season though. Nor have they sunk their chances either.
Rhys Hoskins has 8 homers already, and Bryce Harper 6, but the offense is still in the bottom third of the league. Other than those two and JT Realmuto the team has struggled.
Aaron Nola has looked as sharp as ever this season. His best game of the season was two starts ago too when he held the Cardinals to just two hits in a complete-game shutout. The bullpen has been alright and they can be better when they finally get Archie Bradly healthy.
St. Louis Cardinals
The Cardinals have the statistical profile of a team that is just over .500 (heading into Wednesday action). There is nothing glaring about this group though the potential seems there. Paul deJong leads the team in homers with Yadier Molina but is hitting under .200. Molina has actually been their best bat this season but he is currently out with a foot injury.
Kwang-Hyun Lim made his 2021 debut against Philly. The Cardinals won the game but he only pitched three innings. He was up to five in his next start and may not have any restrictions for this one. He is solid but I does not dominate. The St. Louis bullpen can though They have as many power arms back there as any team in the league.

Free Phillidelphia Phillies vs. St. Louis Cardinals MLB Prediction:
Nola is one of those pitchers where I start with looking to back him. He can be terrific and has some recent success against the Cardinals. This game is on the road but that is no deterrent. The Cardinals are mostly a righty hitting team which is another reason to think that Nola can have continued success.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Phillies ML
I am not sure what to make of Kim. Against a lesser pitcher I would consider him but these teams are about even overall and Nola easily puts the Phillies over the top.
