MLB Betting Odds, Picks & Predictions for Friday: Cardinals vs. Dodgers (9/23)
St. Louis Cardinals vs. Los Angeles Dodgers
Andrew Heaney will take the mound for the Dodgers tonight. He’s a lefty earning 37.7% of strikeouts over the last 30 days. However, Heaney has struggled against righties, allowing a wOBA of .327 and an ISO of .308 to his last 84 righties.
On the other hand, the Cardinals are hitting a .314 ISO with a wOBA of .382 in the last 30 days against lefties as a projected lineup. The lineup will be all right-handed, giving the Cardinals a real chance at beating up Heaney.
Meanwhile, Jose Quintana will take the mound for the Cardinals. He’s also a lefty but has just 17.3% of strikeouts over the last 30 days to batters faced.
Quintana has allowed 25.6% of line drives over the last 30 days and will take on a Dodgers lineup with a .227 ISO and wOBA of .380. Los Angeles has also hit 26.4% of line drives against lefties when the ball is in play over the last 30 days.
We’ve essentially got two lineups that have had significant success against lefties. Let’s take the over in this game.
Bet: Over 8.5 (-105 at DraftKings)
