Major League Baseball Top Exposure - St. Louis Cardinals

Gambling911.com has your top exposure early Saturday in Major League Baseball and that is with the St. Louis Cardinals. 


Despite the high price of -230, the public was all over St. Louis at a 95% clip.

The Red Sox are our second biggest exposure on the day with a late game against Oakland all ready seeing most of the lopsided action at -148.  Some books had the number as high as -162 and a few opened at -135.

The line movement alone seems to suggest concern of a Red Sox win. In fact, our sharpest books including BetOnline have inched close to -160 here (and BOL offers a dime line).  

Boston is 17-2 on the season compared to Oakland at 9-11, though we would be remiss to point out that Boston is 12-26 in the last 38 meetings in Oakland.

Red Sox LH Chris Sale (1-0, 1.23 ERA) has just one victory in four starts this season despite allowing a total of three runs over 16 innings.

He lasted only five while giving up one run and two hits in a no-decision against Baltimore on Sunday. Sale owns a 5-2 record and 2.60 ERA in eight starts and five relief appearances versus Oakland in his career.

Athletics LH Sean Manaea (2-2, 1.63) has been nearly as good as Sale this season, yielding five runs over 27 2/3 innings in four starts, which might explain why the line was still mostly under the -160 price early Saturday afternoon.

He is coming off a victory his last outing and has struggled against Boston in his career, going 1-2 in three starts while surrendering 18 runs and 26 hits (four homers) over 11 1/3 innings.

The Red Sox are 10-1 in their last 11 when their opponent allows 5 runs or more in their previous game and 6-1 in their last 7 games vs. a starter with a WHIP less than 1.15.  They are 6-2 in their last 8 road games vs. a left-handed starter.

The Red Sox are 14-3 in Sale’s last 17 starts vs. a team with a losing record, 17-4 in his last 21 starts after scoring 5 runs or more in their previous game and  22-10 in his last 32 starts.

The Athletics are 0-6 in Manaea’s last 6 starts with 5 days of rest.

The Athletics are 0-5 in their last 5 home games vs. a left-handed starter.

These teams have split wins and losses over their last ten.

The Los Angeles Dodgers come into this affair having clearly made their mark on the 2021 MLB season. With a 106-56 record to end the season, they easily beat out the Padres, Rockies, and Diamondbacks, in the NL West. The rest of baseball with exception of the Rays, (100 wins) were not close, not slightly in the ballpark, not even kind of!
