St. Louis Cardinals vs Milwaukee Brewers Betting Preview

On May 10, 2024, the Milwaukee Brewers will face off against the St. Louis Cardinals in an exciting National League Central matchup at American Family Field. The Brewers, with a record of 22-15 this season, are having a great season, while the struggling Cardinals hold a record of 15-22.

The Brewers will have home-field advantage as they take on the Cardinals. They are projected to start left-handed pitcher Robert Gasser, who is considered below average according to our advanced-stat Power Rankings.

His ERA of 3.28 is great, but his xFIP suggests that he may have been lucky and could regress in future performances. Lynn is projected to pitch around 5.5 innings and allow an above-average 2.6 earned runs. He is also expected to struggle with hits and walks.

Quick Takes St. Louis Cardinals:

Lance Lynn has relied on his cutter 7% more often this year (30.2%) than he did last season (23.2%).

  • Because cutters are one of the most effective pitches to use, a pitcher who alters his pitch mix to use more of them will often see more success as a result.

This year, there has been a decline in Masyn Winn's footspeed with his Statcast Sprint Speed dropping from 29.13 ft/sec last year to 28.6 ft/sec currently.

  • Slow players tend to get fewer hits because they can't beat out groundballs, fewer extra base hits, and fewer stolen bases.

The St. Louis Cardinals have been the unluckiest offense in Major League Baseball this year, according to the leading projection system (THE BAT X), and are likely to perform better in the future

  • When teams underperform their projected talent level, markets may undervalue them even while they are likely to perform better in the near future.

Quick Takes Milwaukee Brewers:

Sal Frelick is an extreme groundball batter and faces the strong infield defense of St. Louis (#2-best of the day).

  • This player's skill set matches up poorly with the opposing team's defensive strength, which may lead to worse-than-usual performance.

Milwaukee's 88.3-mph average exit velocity since the start of last season ranks among the worst in the majors: #25 overall.

  • Hitting the ball hard increases the chances of either a home run or the ball landing in fair territory for a hit before a fielder can get to it.
