Tampa Bay Rays vs St. Louis Cardinals Prediction

For any new people, I will explain how to place this bet. Under “Same Game Parlay” you will head over to “Innings” and select u0.5 runs when hitting “Total Runs 2nd Inning”. After that, you will continue scrolling to the right and go to “Game Props” and select u7.5 Tampa Bay Total Runs to reduce the juice a little. This same bet can be done on MGM as well so we have options of where to look at prices after we move the odds. This game starts within two hours so let's right into the business.

Miles Mikolas and Shane Mclanahan take the mound today, both outstanding pitchers. I’ve been waiting to bet our boy Miles because I knew he was due to negative regression and we were right. I now feel like he’s in a position to have another good start again. Tampa Bay doesn’t have the largest history against him but of the people in the lineup, they are 1-11 against him. Mikolas has only pitched in one game this season where the opposing team scored 8+ so our second leg feels pretty safe. This game has a seven-run total for the whole game so if St Louis scores 8+ on their own then so be it.

Mikolas is 9/11 at pitching scoreless second innings and faces a Rays team that hits .225 against righties. Mclanahan faces a Cardinals team that crushes lefties but we just need three outs from him, and we’re such a fan of his talent. Luckily we won’t have to face Arenado or Goldschmidt more than likely so it's the perfect pivot from betting an NRFI. Mclanahan is 9/11 just like Mikolas and faces the easier part of the Cardinals lineup, Mclanahan is a dog who has a 2.10 ERA for a reason, I believe in him. NRSIs haven't been the kindest to us the last few times betting them but that just means they owe us! We are here to collect our coin, let's roll!
