Cardinals vs. Brewers Prediction
The Cardinals couldn’t ruin the Brewers’ home opener yesterday at American Family Field but will St. Louis at least even its series with Milwaukee on Friday night when the NL Central rivals clash at 8:10 p.m. ET?
957 St. Louis Cardinals (+135) at 958 Milwaukee Brewers (-160); o/u 8.5
8:10 p.m. ET, Friday, April 15, 2022
American Family Field, Milwaukee, WI
St. Louis Cardinals DFS SPIN
Batting ninth, Tommy Edman homered for the Cardinals' lone run Thursday against the Brewers. Less good was that he sac bunted with two on and none out in the third, and the Cardinals failed to get any runs out of it. With a .471 OBP and two homers already, Edman is currently running circles around the guy who replaced him in the leadoff spot this spring, Dylan Carlson. He deserves another chance at the top of the lineup.
Milwaukee Brewers DFS Spin
Omar Narvaez went 2-for-4 and hit his first homer Thursday versus the Cardinals. Narvaez delivered a solo shot off Adam Wainwright in the second inning and drove in another run with a double an inning later. Those were his first two extra-base hits of the season.
