Starting Pitchers

Miles Mikolas came within one out of a no-hitter as he pitched 8.2 innings with six strikeouts and no earned runs surrendered in a 9-1 Cardinals win over the Pittsburgh Pirates last Tuesday night. Mikolas is 5-4 with a 2.62 ERA, a 0.97 WHIP and 66 strikeouts this season.

Corbin Burnes improved to 4-4 with a 2.52 ERA, a 0.95 WHIP and 100 strikeouts last Wednesday by pitching six innings and allowing two earned runs in a 10-2 Brewers win over the New York Mets. Burnes owns a 3.33 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP in 48.2 career innings against the Cardinals.

St. Louis Seeks Better Pitching To End Current Slump

The Cardinals gave up six runs for the third time in their last four games in Sunday’s 6-4 loss on the road to the Boston Red Sox. Prior to going 1-3 and allowing five runs per game over their last four games, St. Louis went 5-1 and gave up only three runs per game in its previous six games.

St. Louis is now 1-5 over its last six road games after dropping two of three to Boston over the weekend. Bettors taking St. Louis as their Cardinals vs Brewers prediction will be looking for a better road effort in Monday night’s series opener.

Milwaukee Returns Home With Some Momentum

The Brewers lost the final six games of their first homestand in June and went on to lose the first two games of the following nine-game road trip to compile an 0-8 losing streak. Milwaukee finally snapped that skid with a 4-1 win over the Washington Nationals on June 12, and the club is now 5-2 over its last seven games after sweeping the Cincinnati Reds this weekend.

First place in the NL Central will be on the line in this four-game series as the Brewers and Cardinals enter the series with matching 38-30 records. Milwaukee had opened up a big lead atop the division with a 32-18 record through its first 50 games, but the Brewers are just 6-12 since then.

Cardinals vs Brewers Pick & Insights

Cardinals: Keys To Victory

Miles Mikolas has faced the Brewers twice this season, allowing only one run in 6.1 innings in a 10-1 win and allowing six runs in 5.2 innings in an 8-0 loss. Mikolas will need to pitch like he did in the first outing to give St. Louis a shot as a Cardinals vs Brewers prediction underdog facing Corbin Burnes.

Brewers: Keys To Victory

Corbin Burnes pitched seven shutout innings and struck out 11 batters in that 8-0 win over the Cardinals last month. Milwaukee should cash in as a Cardinals vs Brewers pick on Monday as long as they can produce a few runs to give Burnes and the bullpen the chance to take care of the rest.
