St. Louis Cardinals
Weaver was rocked in his last outing and was tagged with his seventh loss as Cardinals lost to the Atlanta Braves 4-11. He only went 4.2 innings giving up 10 hits, eight earned runs and two home runs while he struck out five and walked two.
In 17 starts, Weaver owns a solid strikeout (8.29 K/9) to walk (3.44 BB/9) rate, but has been a tad susceptible to the long ball (1.21 HR/9) and has had some trouble stranding base runners (68.3% LOB%). The end-result is a high 5.16 ERA, but has a more respectable 4.23 FIP.
St. Louis has been playing losing baseball in the past week as they could only muster one win out of six contests. During that span their lineup is slashing .217/.283/.323 to go with 13 extra-base hits and 19 RBI.
San Francisco Giants
After spending nearly two months on the DL dealing with an elbow injury, Cueto will be making his first start since April 28th. He’s put in two starts in Triple AAA Sacramento prior to getting the call up.
Cueto was on fire before he hit the DL as he put in a quality start in all five of his starts. In those five starts he’s only given 16 hits and three earned runs total in 32 innings of work. That is a 0.84 ERA and 2.73 ERA.
San Francisco has been playing winning baseball in the past week as they’ve won four of their seven contests. During that span their lineup is slashing .254/.320/.385 to go along with 20 extra-base hits and 30 RBI.

4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Giants +117 & OVER 7.5 Runs
Weaver has been too inconsistent to trust on the road and St. Louis’ lineup hasn’t been hitting the ball too well. Backing Cueto is a little risky as well, but before he hit the DL he was pitching well so I expect an okay performance from him. Back the home team and the total to creep over the threshold.
