Likely Pitching Matchup: Luke Weaver vs. Steven Matz


According to oddsmakers from online sports book YouWager, the Cubs are -152 money line favorites to beat the Mets, who are +188 on the money line to pull off the upset. The total, meanwhile, sits at 8 runs.


The Cardinals opened as -111 money line favorites but their odds jumped to -152, while the Mets opened with -109 odds and saw their line drop to +137. As for the total, it hit the board at 8 and that’s where it currently sits.

As of this writing, 61% of the betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Cardinals to win on the money line. Meanwhile, 61% of the betting tickets are on the over.


The Cardinals have had a rough go of things thus far in the Big Apple but I see them picking up their first victory of the season behind Weaver. The youngster dominated this spring and brings with him an elite strikeout rate. Yoenis Cespedes might have some success against him today but otherwise, I expect Weaver to carry his excellent spring into the regular season. On the other side, Matz isn’t going to get blown up but the Cardinals should do enough damage against him to earn their first victory.
