New York Yankees vs. St. Louis Cardinals Betting Prediction
The Yankees send RHP Domingo German to the mound against St. Louis’ seventh-ranked scoring offense on Saturday night (4.64 RSPG), who’s having an underwhelming return from injury sitting 1-1 with a 6.39 ERA across his first three outings of the year (1.82 WHIP), despite posting a win against Seattle in his latest appearance (5 IP, 2 ER).
On the other hand, the Cardinals send LHP Jordan Montgomery to the hill against New York’s top-ranked scoring offense tonight (5.33 RSPG), who’s making his first appearance for St. Louis after going 3-3 with a 3.69 ERA across 21 starts for the Yankees before getting dealt at the trade deadline (1.10 WHIP).
I’ll back New York here, and Montgomery has been incredibly inconsistent as of late, considering he surrendered four runs or more in four of his last eight starts prior to getting traded (5.36 ERA, 1.36 WHIP); setting the stage for an unfavorable matchup against the Yankees and German, who’s 1-0 with a 3.72 ERA across his last two outings (9.2 IP, 4 ER).
Score Prediction: Yankees 6, Cardinals 4
Best Bet: Yankees ML (-105)
