MLB Baseball Gambling Total:
The Kansas City Royals will welcome in the St. Louis Cardinals to Kauffman Stadium this Friday, as the two meetup for an interesting inter-league contest.
St. Louis Cardinals
The St. Louis Cardinals will find it very tough to climb back into this divisional race, as they are now 11 games back of the lead, but they have been doing their part recently winning 5 of their last 6 contests.
It is nice that the Cardinals do not need to travel very far at all for this road series, and it is not like the Royals are lighting up the league here in 2021, so they should be in a good spot to continue picking up more wins.
I would continue to look out for Nolan Arenado on this offense, as the Cardinals have to be quite happy with his play since coming over from Colorado and he has proven to a lot of people that he did not need the altitude to put up great numbers.
The big worry for the Cardinals in this spot is the guy they send to the mound, as Jack Flaherty gets the call to the hill and he has just not been able to get the job done this year and this will not be an easy matchup against this Royals batting lineup.
Kansas City Royals
The Kansas City Royals are going to be an interesting team to watching going into next year, as they are not nearly as bad as their record would suggest and I can see them pulling off some upsets down the stretch.
The Royals offense does get a nice matchup here, and I expect this offense to look a lot better towards the end of the season, as they are finally getting a bit healthier and it will be interesting to see what management does to this unit going into next year.
Mike Minor will head to the hill here and he is another guy who has not been all that impressive, so we could have a higher scoring matchup here, as it also looks like the weather will be on the side of the hitters.

Free St. Louis Cardinals vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction:
The Cardinals are the slightly better team, but I think the Royals have a big enough advantage on the mound that they will be able to get the job done in the end. It is tough to trust Flaherty at this point, and this Royals offense can be sneaky good at times and I think we see them shine here in what should be a high scoring matchup that the Royals eventually get the upper hand in.
