St. The Louis Cardinals and Milwaukee Brewers play Thursday with first pitch set at 2:10 p.m. ET. The game takes place at American Family Field in Milwaukee, WI and will only be available on local TV or via an MLB.tv subscription. Dakota Hudson will start for the Cardinals, while Jason Alexander gets the nod for the Brewers.
So far this season, the Cardinals have been in great form and the main reason for that success is Paul Goldschmidt. If the season ends today, he will win the NL MVP award. He hit .339 with 17 home runs and 60 runs hit in. Tommy Edman and Nolan Arenado were also very helpful to the Cardinals. At the mound, Dakota Hudson is great as she has a 5-3 record with 3.31 ERA.
Even though they’re not currently in, there’s a good chance the Brewers make it back into the postseason this year. They are currently 39-32 and just one game behind the Cardinals for first place in NL Central. Willy Adames and Hunter Renfroe have been swinging the bats well recently. Adames is hitting .290 with three home runs and seven runs over their last seven games, while Renfroe is hitting .292 with three home runs and seven runs as well. At the mound, Jason Alexander will start his fifth career. Earlier this year, Alexander performed superbly with the score 1-0 with an ERA of 2.42.

Odds, picks & predictions
Run Line: Cardinal -1.5
Run total: 9
Money line opportunities: Brewers -120, Cardinals +100
Moneyline Options: Cardinal +100
It was a tough choice, but I think the Cardinals lineup was hot today. After losing 2-0 in Game 1 of this series, St. Louis won twice in a row. They have scored 5+ runs in the last two games and they are up against a rookie who will be performing badly.
Player prop options: Dakota Hudson over 3.5 strikeouts (-135)
It’s a tough game because Hudson isn’t a big strikeout pitcher. I’m expecting great nipples from Hudson today. If Hudson can do six innings, I think he has at least four strikeouts. Look for him to have a quality outing and get the win.
