St. Louis Cardinals DFS SPIN

Harrison Bader went 2-for-4 with a homer on Saturday in a blowout loss to the Padres. The Cardinals hit three homers in this contest, which is good. All of them were solo shots and they were the only runs in the game, which is less good. Bader has swung the bat well since coming off the injured list, and has his fourth homer of the season in just 15 games. Bader hasn't shown this kind of offensive prowess in the past, but at the age of 26, it's not completely out of question that this is the breakout season for him. It'd be a mistake to bet on it right now, however.

San Diego Padres DFS SPIN

Trent Grisham went 3-for-5 with a run scored on Saturday in a blowout win over the Cardinals. Grisham picked up singles with all three hits. Not that there's anything wrong with that, and Pham has shown plenty of pop as seen in his .492 slugging percentage. Grisham was considered a volatile fantasy option coming into the 2021 season, but so far, the 24-year-old has been an excellent option with a .304 average, five homers and six steals in 31 games.

Cardinals vs. Padres Betting Prediction

The Cardinals are winless in their last four games versus the Padres and are now 3-7 in their last 10 games as a road underdog. They’re also 3-8 in their last 11 games versus a left-handed starter, while the Padres are 5-1 in their last six games overall. San Diego has also cashed in four of its last five games versus National League Central opponents and is 11-2 on its last 13 games played on Sunday.
