Top Baseball Daily Predictions are winning at a remarkable rate and will continue through the 2018 World Series. The (68-57), third place St.Louis Cardinals ended a seven-game homestand Sunday, August 19th with a 2-1 loss to Milwaukee but are climbing into the race for October. St.Louis takes on the Los Angeles Dodgers who are returning from a six-game road trip which they went 3-3. It’ll be the first time in 2018 the storied franchises have met. A pair of lefties will be on the mound Monday as Austin Gomber who’s won his last two starts will get the start for St.Louis. The Florida Atlantic University alumni has an impressive 2.89 era, not allowing a run in his previous eleven innings. Monday’s Game time is 10:10 PM EST at infamous Dodgers Stadium in the Chavez Ravine section of Los Angeles, California. Local Television Networks will be broadcasting. The Opening Betting Line has St.Louis as a +150 road underdog. The betting odds total is eight runs for Monday’s contest.
A month after the firing of manager Mike Matheny, Mike Shildt may be on the way to getting the interim label removed based on how they’ve been performing lately. After a rocky beginning post-All-Star break, the Cardinals are 14-4 in August to close within four games Chicago in the National League Central and a half game out of a wildcard spot. Injuries to center fielder Dexter Fowler along with starting Pitchers Michael Wacha and Adam Wainwright, who’ll all be out until late in September has forced other players to perform. Especially in the pitching rotation where Miles Mikolas has thirteen wins to his credit while Bud Norris and Jordan Hicks are coming out of the bullpen in relief to close games. First Baseman Jose Martinez who leads the batting order with a .308 average and sixty-nine RBI’s is questionable tonight with a sore hip; he’s’ missed the last two games. St.Louis will travel the Mile High City for another three-game set against a surging Colorado Rockies team on Friday, August 24th which could determine a lot in the postseason hunt. Bovada.Lv, list the St.Louis Cardinals at +700 to win the 2018 NL Central division.
The (67-58), Los Angeles Dodgers have lost six of ten while falling two games out of first place in the competitive NL West and are a game and a half behind Monday’s opponent in the wildcard race. While having the third rated pitching staff in baseball manager, Dave Roberts wants more production in the batter’s box. Justin Turner (13) and Cody Bellinger(12) are on extended hitting streaks, but more runs need to be manufactured from the likes of newly acquired Manny Machado, Matt Kemp, and Yasiel Puig. It’s been an injury-riddled season for the reigning NL Champions, and it’s beginning to rear its ugly head, but Roberts can’t let it be an excuse for failure. Left-hander Alex Wood get the will be on the hill for the Dodgers who are 2-1-1 his last four starts. The betting odds under is 5-2 between the teams dating back to 2017 which could entice bettors with two hot hurlers on the hill Monday.

Top MLB Expert Picks are winning at a remarkable rate and will continue through the 2018 World Series. After taking two of three from Seattle, the Houston Astros spent Thursday, August 2nd in Los Angeles with business as usual on their minds in a rematch of the 2017 World Series. The Astros beat the Dodgers 2-1 the next day without Carlos Correa and Jose Altuve who are nursing minor ailments, but Justin Verlander was outstanding allowing four hits with a run in seven and two-thirds innings. Right-hander Lance McCullers Jr.(10-6) with a 4.06 earned run average will get the call tonight, the Tampa, Florida native should be in his comfort zone after beating the Dodgers in both of his starts in the 2017 World Series. On the other hand, the Los Angeles Dodgers need a win as they are now in a first-place tie with Arizona. Los Angeles is 2-3 on their current homestand which ends Sunday with a six-game road trip against surging Oakland and Colorado on the slate it’s crucial for the Dodgers to perform at a high level. Game time is 9:05 PM EST at Dodgers Stadium in the Chavez Ravine section of Los Angeles, California. Local Television Networks will be broadcasting. The Opening Betting Line has the Dodgers as a -140 home favorite. The betting odds total is seven and a half runs for Saturday’s contest.
Manager A. J. Hinch watched in disgust as his team got swept at home by their in-state rivals Texas Rangers getting outscored 22-8 in the span of three games. The reigning World Champions then lost game one of a series in Seattle before righting the ship, and they are now on a three-game winning streak as fans breath a sigh of relief showing why they have the best road record in baseball. Despite their previous homestand, the Astros have the top pitching rotation in baseball with the bullpen being just as effective. Although Hinch watched his team perform at a maximum level last night they aren’t the same without their infield battery of Altuve and Correa, their return is paramount for the stretch run primarily with the red-hot Oakland A’s. The Astros have beaten Los Angeles 4 of their last six meetings with the betting odds under coming in three times over the previous four contests. The total could be tricky tonight with McCullers who got shelled the last time he pitched in Southern California allowing five runs in four innings to the Angels; he’s also lost his three previous starts overall. Bovada.Lv, list the Houston Astros at +450 to win the 2018 World Series.
The Dodgers will send right-hander Kenta Maeda who usually last five to six inning to the pitcher’s mound. Manager Dave Roberts likes the direction of his team that’s why management didn’t make any significant moves at the trade deadline but the absence of shortstop Cory Seager who’ll miss the remainder of the season could be felt as the season progresses. Left Fielder Matt Kemp is in a bit of a slump in the batter’s box with a single hit in the last ten games, right fielder Yasiel Puig missed last night’s game after driving in four runs batted in the finale vs. Milwaukee, his status is uncertain Saturday. As good as Houston’s pitching staff is the Dodgers are just as productive ranking third in the MLB landscape with a 3.48 earned run average. As usual, Kenley Jansen is one of the best coming out of the bullpen, but the rest of the relievers are having their share of problems this season. Making the under more enticing for bettors is the Dodgers staying under the total seven of their last eight interleague games. Bovada.Lv, list the Los Angeles Dodgers at +500 to win the 2018 World Series Championship.
