Brewers vs Cardinals Pick

St Louis Cardinals (4-2) @ Milwaukee Brewers (4-4)

Brewers Moneyline -120 at DraftKings

This is a pretty tight matchup, which could give a better picture of who’s in charge of the NL Central by the end of the series. Steven Matz was a nice signing for the Cardinals but you have to be worried by his awful performance in his first start, giving up 7 runs in 3 innings to the Pirates. He had a really nice season last year with the Blue Jays but he’s at risk of regressing back to the pitcher he was on the Mets. He may find it today but I wouldn’t count on it.

On the flip side, Houser hasn’t exactly looked like an ace himself for the Brewers, getting pulled in the 4th against the Orioles, but I trust the Brewers gap guys and the rest of the bullpen more than the Cardinals, if these two starters do struggle. Paired up with the home field advantage, I think the Brewers have a very good chance to come out with a win tonight.

Pirates vs Nationals Pick

Washington Nationals (4-5) @ Pittsburgh Pirates (3-4)

Nationals Moneyline +100 at DraftKings

Is anyone else surprised to see this line leaning towards the Pirates? Rogers is on the mound for the Nats after a great first outing, vs Bryse Wilson who struggled in his first game and only made it through 4 innings. The Nationals have been hitting as well as anyone lately, putting up an insane 46 runs in the last 5 games. They’ll have a good chance to exploit the subpar starter and bullpen of the Pirates tonight.
