Baseball Betting on the Cardinals at Dodgers

May 20th, 2024 Betting on MLB Baseball

Baseball betting on Monday is highlighted by the ESPN 2 game between the St. Louis Cardinals and Los Angeles Dodgers. It could be a great pitching matchup if the starters are ready to go as Chris Carpenter is on track for Monday against Chad Billingsley. That could make this an under for those who bet on baseball. Baseball has the Cardinals beginning a 7-game road trip with this game on Monday. The Cardinals have owned the Dodgers of late, winning 14 of the last 20 in baseball betting. They are a superb 7-3 in the last 10 at Los Angeles in baseball.

Billingsley is 11-6 on the season with a 3.73 ERA as baseball statistics indicate. If he makes this start as scheduled on Monday it would be his first in 10 days. He had a hamstring injury and missed his last start in baseball. He was great against the Cardinals last time until the sixth inning when he gave up six runs. If Carpenter goes as slated he would be looking for his 13th win. He is 12-3 on the season with a 2.27 ERA.

Six of the last ten meetings between the two teams at Los Angeles have gone under the baseball betting total at the sports book. The Dodgers and Cardinals have two of the top pitching staffs in baseball this season as bet on baseball stats indicate so this game on Monday could be a pitcher’s duel. The concern when taking Los Angeles under in baseball betting at the sportsbook is that they have a potent offense that has been in the Top 5 in the league for much of the season. St. Louis doesn’t have quite the offense Los Angeles does but it has improved since they got Matt Holliday.

This is the first meeting between the two teams this season in Los Angeles as bet on baseball schedule info tells us. Last year at L.A. the Cardinals won two of the three games and all three went under the baseball betting total at the sports book.

The marquee baseball matchup on Monday could have Albert Pujols going against the Dodger’s Chad Billingsley and Manny Ramirez up against Chris Carpenter.
