St. Louis Cardinals
In his first season back in Major League Baseball since 2014, Miles Mikolas is giving St. Louis both quality and quantity.
Mikolas, who has one complete game this season, is averaging between six and seven innings per start (he’s made 13 of them).
He’s also maintained a WHIP under 1.00 because he hardly ever walks anybody (he has 9 walks compared to 63 strikeouts on the season).
As a result, he’s 7–2 with a great chance to make the all-star team if he stays healthy and continues doing exactly what he’s been doing.
Aaron Nola wasn’t at his best on Sunday in Milwaukee but the Phillies still beat the Brewers, despite giving up four runs in the ninth inning, 10–9.
By winning the final two games in the series, the Phillies paid the Brewers back for beating them two out of three in Philadelphia the weekend before.
The Phils are four games back of Atlanta in the NL East and just half a game short of Washington, which struggled in Toronto this last weekend.
Twenty-Five years old out of Victoria in Canada, Nick Pivetta will take his below-.500 record (4–6) and his strong WHIP (1.20) and K rate (10.1 per 9 innings) to the hill at Citizens Bank Park.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:

Free St. Louis Cardinals vs. Philadelphia Phillies MLB Prediction: Mikolas.
I actually like both starters but fear the under in Philly. This is a slight lean and I think I’m generally passing on this game.
