PIRATES VS CARDINALS *BEST BET ANALYSIS
The Pittsburgh Pirates take on the St. Louis Cardinals in game 2 of this series at Busch Stadium. The pitching matchup tonight is a very good one as Miles Mikolas takes on Trevor Williams. Both pitchers are having incredible seasons. Williams is 10-9 with a 3.44 ERA and Mikolas is 13-3 with a 2.94 ERA. Mikolas had a tough start his last time out giving up 4 earned in just 4.2 innings pitched. However, he was pitching at Coors Field which is the most hitter friendly ballpark in baseball. He should bounce back tonight pitching at home against a Pirates team that has been struggling really bad offensively lately.
Williams starts for Pittsburgh and he has impressed me a lot with his strong pitching and his consistency. In his last 7 starts he has only given up 4 earned runs and has beaten some very good offenses over that span including the Indians and Cubs. Also, in that span he has seen his ERA drop from 4.60 to 3.44. He should continue his extremely strong form and shut down the Cardinals tonight.
This game sets up to be a very low scoring affair. Back the under in our best bet of the day.
