How to Bet Cardinals-Pirates
In addition to traditional bets like the moneyline, run line, and game total, several more bets are offered at FanDuel Sportsbook.
Will the Infusion of Young Talent Spark Cardinals?
Before the weekend series with the Pittsburgh Pirates, the St Louis Cardinals announced that top-prospects Nolan Gorman and Matthew Liberatore were called up from the minors. Brendan Donovan and Juan Yepez have already infiltrated the Cardinals’ lineup and provided a spark, but will Gorman playing every day at the major league level help get this offense going for more than a handful of games?
Cardinals Projected Lineup:
SS Tommy Edman
2B Nolan Gorman
1B Paul Goldschmidt
3B Nolan Arenado
DH Juan Yepez
RF Dylan Carlson
LF Corey Dickerson
CF Harrison Bader
C Yadier Molina
Starting Pitcher: Miles Mikolas
Can the Pirates Find Success Against Slumping Cardinals?
The Cardinals enter this series having lost three of four games vs. the New York Mets, and you can bet that Pittsburgh will want St. Louis to continue struggling. The Pirates lost two of three games against the Cardinals to begin their season, and they’ll be looking for payback this weekend at home.
Pirates Projected Lineup:
3B Ke’Bryan Hayes
CF Bryan Reynolds
2B Michael Chavis
DH Daniel Vogelbach
SS Rodolfo Castro
RF Diego Castillo
1B Yoshitomo Tsutsugo
C Tyler Heineman
LF Jack Suwinski
Starting Pitcher: Bryse Wilson
