A handful of early games to start the day before heading to LA for the Wolf’s best of the day.
Miami Marlins at St. Louis Cardinals (10:15am)
The Marlins took the first game of this series 7-4 and basically ruined the return of beloved Cardinal Yadier Molina. But the home side should have the advantage in game 2. They send Jack Flaherty to the hill and he’s pitched well all season. He holds an overall ERA of 2.62 and team’s are batting under .200 against him at this ballpark. Meanwhile, Marlins starter Wei-Yin Chen has been absolutely terrible in away games. In 4 starts, he’s 0-3 with a massive ERA of 12.21. In 14 innings pitched, he’s allowed 21 hits and 6 home runs. His latest start was over in the 2nd inning as the Padres got to him early. So the Wolf can see the Cardinals enjoying a rebound game on Thursday. In the betting, the Cardinals team total at 5 runs seems good value. They’re 5-3 against it when playing the Marlins since 2017. With Chen struggling on the road, the Cardinals should easily pass this total.
Kansas City Royals at Los Angeles Angels (12:07pm)
The Angels will look for the sweep with game 3 of this series slated for Thursday morning. With Japanese star Shohei Ohtani on the hill, the chances are high. He’s proving hard to get past for opposing batting lineups and the Royals will likely suffer the same fate. At home this season, he’s dominating with a 2.35 ERA and team’s have batted just .171 against him. With the Royals coming off a shut-out, the Angels should easily win this contest. Especially as they face the struggling Ian Kennedy of the Royals. He’s holding a 1-6 win-loss record on the season. While in road games, his ERA is sitting at 7.01. His last overall start saw 3 home runs allowed and it won’t be any easier against this Angels lineup. So in the end, the Wolf can’t see how the Royals can get within 2 runs of the Angels and will be getting on the handicap as the best bet. He also likes the over 5 runs total for the Angels as a value bet.
