The Washington Nationals and St. Louis Cardinals meet Saturday in MLB action at Busch Stadium. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.

Washington Nationals Betting Preview

The Washington Nationals have scored 17 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 6 of their last 9 games. The Nationals have won 5 of their last 8 games when scoring 4 or more runs. Lane Thomas leads the Nationals with 107 hits and 49 RBI, while Joey Meneses and Luis Garcia have combined for 181 hits and 83 RBI. Jake Irvin gets the ball, and he is 2-5 with a 4.60 ERA and 41 strikeouts this season. This will be Irvin’s first career game against the Cardinals.

St. Louis Cardinals Betting Preview

The St. Louis Cardinals have scored 14 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 6 of their last 10 games. The Cardinals have won 9 of their last 13 games when scoring 4 or more runs. Paul Goldschmidt leads the Cardinals with 97 hits and 46 RBI, while Nolan Arenado and Brendan Donovan have combined for 172 hits and 89 RBI. Steven Matz gets the ball, and he is 0-7 with a 4.65 ERA and 69 strikeouts this season. Matz is 1-8 with a 5.29 ERA and 80 strikeouts in his career against the Nationals.

Randy’s Pick

The St. Louis Cardinals are getting the benefit of the doubt because they’re at home and supposed to be the better team on paper. However, nobody should be willing to lay juice with Steven Matz on the mound, as the Cardinals have lost 10 of his last 11 starts. Also, Matz has been owned by the Nationals throughout his career. Give me the Nationals and the potential big payout.
