St. Louis Cardinals
St. Louis is hoping that having Monday off doesn’t kill their momentum. The Cardinals just finished up an impressive sweep of the Pirates over the weekend, scoring 20 runs in three games. Sure the Pirates are bad as they’ve lost 8 straight games – but so are the Royals, who are just 3-7 in their last 10.
This will actually be the 2nd series of the year between the in-state, albeit interleague, Missouri rivals. The two squads split back in late May with Kansas City scoring a 10-3 win and dropping a 2-8 decision in a doubleheader.
The Cardinals need to get their road game swag going in this one. The sweep over the Pirates was nice – but it also came at Busch Stadium. St. Louis dropped 5 in a row in their last road trip, scoring a total of 7 runs. That was also on the West Coast though.
St. Louis goes with Jack Flaherty on Tuesday. The reason the Cardinals are such huge -213 favorites in this one is because Flaherty has been one of the best pitchers in the league since the all-star break. Over his last six starts, Flaherty’s ERA is just 0.94.
Kansas City Royals
Do the Royals get any offense going vs. the Cardinals starter and if not is this a contest that is destined to go ‘under’ the 9.5 listed? The KC bats came alive in a 4-game series vs. Detroit scoring 7+ runs in three of the games. That was against the Tigers though.
One batter who is a threat to the ‘under’ is definitely the Royals’ Jorge Soler as he is 6 for his last 11 with 4 HR’s. Only four KC hitters have ever faced Flaherty however.
Glenn Sparkman goes for Kansas City in this tilt looking to break a streak of four straight poor outings. Over that span Sparkman has allowed 22 ER in 19.2 IP allowing 7HR in the process.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Cardinals are 0-5 last 5 road games
- Cardinals are 4-11 in Flaherty’s last 15 road starts
- Under is 6-0-1 in Flaherty’s lasts 7 starts
- Royals are 4-12 last 16 overall
- Royals are 1-5 in Sparkman’s last 6 starts
- Cardinals are 21-7 in last 28 in Kansas City
Free St. Louis Cardinals vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction:
The Cardinals recent road record looks bad, but they also played two quality West Coast teams in the Dodgers and Athletics. The Royals looked solid in their last series – but it was against the Tigers.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Cardinals -1.5
Flaherty should continue to dominate and Sparkman is just a wild card on the mound right now for KC.
