Cardinals vs Dodgers Betting Lines




Cardinals vs Dodgers Best Pick: Dodgers -1 1/2 (-115)

An MLB bet on the Dodgers to beat the Cardinals and cover the -1 1/2 run line is an intelligent play from where I sit. Following a rocky start, Yamamoto is poised for a strong comeback against a Cardinals lineup that lacks significant power besides Paul Goldschmidt and Nolan Aranado.

Expect a more composed performance from the highest-paid pitcher in MLB history, with nearly eight days of rest and time to iron out his first-start jitters.

Meanwhile, the Dodgers’ offense, featuring power hitters like Mookie Betts, Freddie Freeman, and Shohei Ohtani, seems primed to exploit Lynn’s vulnerability to home runs.

Given Lynn’s struggles with long balls last season, the Dodgers’ formidable lineup is set to shine, making them a solid bet to cover the MLB spread.

Cardinals vs Dodgers Prop Pick: Max Muncy Over 0.5 Total Bases (-152)

Regarding my MLB picks for player props, I like Max Muncey at -152 to go over 0.5 total bases on hits. The talented third baseman is hitting .313 this season with a stellar .743 OPS in four games. He’s hit safely in all four games and is 4-0 when his total bases are O/U 0.5.

Muncy has recorded at least a single in his last six appearances at Dodger Stadium against opponents with a losing record. He also leads the team in strikeouts with eight, which isn’t great. But, Like Yamamoto, Muncy will settle in on Saturday, limit those mistakes, and cash our MLB bet picks today.
