Cardinals Host Dodgers Tuesday Night (July 12, 2022)

Cardinals Host Dodgers Tuesday Night (July 12, 2022)

At the onset of his Los Angeles arrival, Mookie Betts faced high expectations.  Betts is a 6-time All-Star and 2018 American League Most Valuable Player.  Betts was the MLB betting odds catalyst for the Red Sox 2018 World Series championship.  Thus, he was touted as the missing link for the Dodgers’ World Series hopes in 2020.  Sure enough, Los Angeles won the 2020 World Series, ending a 32-year drought.  This year Betts is in the conversation for National League Most Valuable Player.  Most important of all, Betts is putting the Dodgers in the payout window consistently.

Dodgers vs. Cardinals CashBet Odds Analysis – Passing in the Night

On this best sportsbook online occasion, we have two teams going in opposite directions.  Los Angeles is bossing the cashier’s cage with their best period of success in 2022.  Counter to that is a Cardinal club giving new meaning to the term “Redbirds.”  St. Louis is drowning gamblers in red ink.

Dodgers Take Command of NL West Division

First place in the National League West belongs to Los Angeles.  LA has a Betting on baseball record of 55-29 with 30-44-10 under the total.  In away games, the Dodgers are 26-16 with 14-24-4 under the total.  Overall, the Dodgers have MLB ranks of 2nd for run production, 9th for home runs, 1st for earned run average, 8th for fewest errors committed, and 6th for bullpen earned run average. Los Angeles has paid in nine of its most recent ten games.  At the same time, only one of those ten games went over the total.

Cardinals Struggle to Keep Pace

Second place in the National League Central is where the Cardinals reside.  St. Louis has a record of 45-42 with the MLB betting lines and is 40-34-4 under the total.  At Busch Stadium, St. Louis is 24-18 with 22-18-2 over the total.  MLB rankings show the Redbirds 12th for run production, 16th for home runs, 11th for earned run average, 3rd for fewest errors committed, and 9th for bullpen earned run average.

Last year the Cardinals scapegoated manager Mike Shildt after a wild card round loss.  Shildt led the Redbirds to the baseball betting playoffs in his final three seasons.  Also, he was named 2019 National League Manager of the Year.  But the Cardinals believed that Shildt was tuned out.  And that a younger manager would spark their roster to play better.  Instead, the Cardinals have been exposed as a pretender.  Shildt likely got as much as anyone could out of St. Louis.

Oliver Marmol, age 36, is the youngest manager in baseball.  St. Louis is the first managerial assignment of his career.  Marmol was a coach under Shildt before his promotion.  Initially, he was the first baser coach before being promoted to bench coach two years later.  Overall, it is difficult to assess how much blame belongs to Marmol or general manager Mike Girsch.

Dodgers vs. Cardinals On the Hill

Mitch White is the scheduled starting pitcher for the Dodgers.  Thus far, White is 1-1 with a 3.38 earned run average and a WHIP of 1.15.  Craig Kimbrell has saved 15 games in 18 chances.  Overall, Kimbrel is 2-4 with a 4.66 earned run average and 1.52 WHIP.

Namely, Matthew Liberatore is the probable starter for the Cardinals.  Liberatore is 2-1 with a 4.74 earned run average and 1.74 WHIP.  Meanwhile, closer Giovanny Gallegos is 2-3 with a 3.27 earned run average.  He has saved nine games in 14 chances.
