St Louis Cardinals
The Cards are neck and neck with the Chicago Cubs for the NL Central title with the Cardinals only trailing the Cubs by 1.5 games. Most of this division has struggled for consistency as of late and the Cardinals are no different posting a 5-5 record in their last 10 outings. St Louis is also a far better home team than road team sporting a losing record on the road this year. Taking this into account, the Cards might count themselves a bit unlucky to have this road series against the best team in baseball at such a critical juncture of the season.
The Cardinals will send Miles Mikolas (7-11, 4.00 ERA) to the mound, who in his only career start against the Dodgers, ended up beating them. The rest of Mikolas’ season though, has been the definition of mediocre with the Cardinals going 11-11 when he starts. Mikolas and the Cards will be looking for a repeat of his first outing in this one and to prevent going further behind the Cubs, he will need to.
Los Angeles Dodgers
The Dodgers are absolutely cruising in the NL West with all competition at least 17 games back at this point. Despite the division being a mere formality at this point, not all motivation is lost. A 2017 rule change gives home field to the team who has the best record in the league and considering the Dodgers are very likely to play the Yankees, or Astros, they very much still have motivation to win.
And win they just might do with Clayton Kershaw (10-2, 2.85 ERA) heading to the mound to defend home turf in LA. Kershaw has had another great season, but he truly has shined at home, where he is 7-0 with a 2.35 ERA. Kershaw apparently was not pleased with his last outing (5 walks/6 innings/2 runs) and I expect him to bounce back in a big way on Tuesday.

- Cardinals are 0-5 in Mikolas’ last 5 starts with 5 days of rest.

Free St Louis Cardinals vs. Los Angeles Dodgers MLB Prediction:
The minute I read Kershaw was a little ticked off about his previous outing I thought it would be very dangerous to fade him. When you read more into the stats and trends it becomes almost impossible.
