Cardinals vs Angels Prediction

It is an out West MLB showdown as the Los Angeles Angels take on the St. Louis Cardinals in what promises to be a thrilling contest. With both teams aiming to secure a crucial victory, this matchup is set to deliver high-stakes action and will hopefully be a profitable endeavour for us as bettors. Get in on all the action with our free MLB picks.

The Los Angeles Angels (15-27) are gearing up for a challenging game against the St. Louis Cardinals. The Angels will be without their superstar outfielder, Mike Trout. Instead, LA will rely on the likes of Logan O'Hoppe (.268 AVG) and Taylor Ward (24 RBIs). Pitching for the Angels will be Griffin Canning, who has not been able to get any momentum, with a 5.75 ERA on the year.

Meanwhile, the St. Louis Cardinals (17-24) will try to cap off a series that has been positive for them. Winning the opening game, the Cardinals have a chance to build off a series win. Paul Goldschmidt has uncharacteristically struggled in 2024, with .199 batting average. On the other hand, Nolan Arenado has been a consistent force for the St. Louis offense. Arenado is hitting a team-leading 21 RBIs. St. Louis is fading fast in the divisional race and would like a win to keep pace in the competitive NL Central.

Cardinals vs Angels Pick

The Angels have looked better in this series than their recent form suggests. However, with Lance Lynn on the mound for the Cardinals, LA is unlikely to score many runs. The Cardinals' offense is not great either, but we like them slightly better than the Angels. Take St. Louis to win. Prediction: Cardinals win 4-3.
