Cardinals vs. Dodgers Series Starting Pitchers, Betting, DFS Strategies June 4-6

Gambling911.com has your Cardinals vs. Dodgers series starting pitchers betting and Daily Fantasy Sports strategies for the period June 4 through 6.

Team Head-to-Head Synopsis:

The last three games in this series played a few days ago in St. Louis stayed UNDER 7.  The last two games in the 2014 post season played in St. Louis stayed UNDER 6 while a game in LA went UNDER 6 as well.  Another went OVER 10.  Three of four games played in Los Angeles last year stayed UNDER 7.

The last three games the Dodgers played in Colorado went OVER 6 but that’s Colorado.  That being said, half of the last six games the Dodgers played at home stayed UNDER 6, two of three were against San Diego.  Six of seven of the previous home games totaled 8 or more.  The trend definitely favors the OVER in games played in Los Angeles while this series favors the UNDER.

St. Louis, meanwhile, has kept games they’ve played in at 7 or UNDER in seven of the last nine.  11 of 13 overall have totaled 7 or fewer. 

The UNDER is 8-3 in this series during the last 11 meetings.

One will want to consider the UNDER in this series

Thursday June 4:

Mike Wacha (Cardinals) – You will want to be all over him for your fantasy roster as he is coming off a bad loss (his first of the season).  He’s only allowed 4 hits off of 22 at bats against the current LA roster in the limited appearances versus the Dodgers.

Carlos Frias (Dodgers) – He had one atrocious showing and that’s about it.   Otherwise he’s been solid but, in the limited appearances against this Cardinals roster, Frias has given up two of three hits to Matt Carpenter.

The total will likely come in around 6.5 and should one should still hone in on the UNDER.  St. Louis is probably a good play too here.

Friday June 5:

Carlos Martinez (Cardinals) – He is due for a bad outing after back-to-back starts with seven shutout innings and eight strikeouts.  Martinez hasn't surrendered a run in 21 consecutive innings, spanning more than three starts.  But beware, he allowed seven runs in two consecutive games back in early May.

This means, if you are Andre Ethier, you should have a decent night.  Ethier has hit in seven of his last ten games and is 3-for-8 against Martinez with a double. 

Even with Martinez’ solid pitching of late, prior to his last two starts, seven of eight totaled 7 or higher. 

Brett Anderson (Dodgers) – Seven of ten games he has started in have resulted in at least three runs being scored. 

Stay away from the total here.  This one scares us as likely bucking the trend we note above.

Saturday June 6:

Jaime Garcia (Cardinals) – He’s pitched at least 6 innings in his three starts this season.  Two of those stayed UNDER 6.  Garcia was the tough-luck loser Monday night against Milwaukee despite limiting the Brewers to one run on three hits over seven innings.

Nobody on the current Dodgers roster has hit over .300 against Garcia with 80 at bats.   Chris Heisey has gone 5 for 18 against Garcia with 4 of those doubles, but he’s had a cold bat this season. 

Clayton Kershaw (Dodgers) - Kershaw (4-3) held the Rockies to two runs on five hits and a walk while fanning seven over seven innings Monday in Colorado.

Kershaw was roughed up in one of the two Playoffs games last season but allowed three or fewer runs against St. Louis in the other three games he started in 2014.   He pitched 7 innings in two of those three.

Pull the trigger on the UNDER for this one if 7 or higher.  6.5 is still an option. 

Peter Bourjos has some value here.  He is 4-for-11 off of Kershaw with a homerun.
