FREE MLB PICK St. Louis Cardinals vs. Milwaukee Brewers
The St. Louis Cardinals have struggled as a team hitting on the road at Miller Park. They have a .236 batting average overall and a .255 average during day games. The few bright spots in this Cardinals lineup is Paul Goldschmidt and Kolten Wong. Goldschmidt has produced extremely well so far this year against Milwaukee. He currently has 5 HR with 8 Hits and 9 RBIs, with an incredible .421 batting average. Kolten Wong currently has 2 HR with 8 Hits and 4 RBIs, while hitting .421. If the Cardinals are going to end this losing streak, the other players in the lineup are going to have to help these two out and produce.
Michael Wacha (0-0) is the projected starter for todays game. Although he has struggled this year with a 5.28 ERA, he pitched extremely well against Milwaukee in the beginning of the year. He went a solid 6 innings and gave up 4 hits and 1 ER. If he can duplicate that effort again, look for him to finally pick up his first win of the season if the bullpen doesn’t let him down again.
Who is hotter than Christian Yelich against the Cardinals? He has single handily owned St. Louis so far this year. The reigning NL MVP has 7 HR, including the 3 Monday night, with a ridiculous .563 batting average in 5 games against the Cardinals. Someone else to keep an eye on is Mike Moustakas. He quietly has 3 HR with 4 RBIs and a .400 against St. Louis this year. Look for the two guys to keep up the hot hitting. As a team, Milwaukee is hitting .300 at home and .240 in day games at home.
Corbin Burnes (0-1) is the projected starter for Milwaukee. He has gotten off to a very rocky start with a 10.05 ERA so far this year. The last game he pitched against cardinals, he went 5 innings and gave up 6 hits and 4 ER.

FREE MLB PREDICTION Milwaukee Brewers vs. St. Louis Cardinals
The St. Louis Cardinals needs a win in a bad way to avoid being swept by their division rival. I just can’t bet against the hot hitting Christian Yelich, who is by far the best player in this series. Until the Cardinals can show me they can slow him down, I like Milwaukee straight up in this game. The real value in this game is the run total. When these two teams play, expect a ton of runs to be scored. The pick for this game is over 9.5 runs.
