Cardinals vs. Braves: MLB Pitcher Report Card, Preview, Picks and Predictions

NL Divisional Series Game 1

Even the Central Division champion St. Louis Cardinals will see the East Division champion Atlanta Braves to Start a best-of-five series to determine who will advance to the NL Championship Series to face the winner of the Washington Nationals vs. Los Angeles Dodgers series.
The teams last played in May together with the Braves winning equally series to get a 4-2 record all around.
The Braves needed a lead at the East Division for much of the second half of this season and could become position players and starters the needed rest. As a result, they are going with veteran left-hander Dallas Keuchel (8-8, 3.75) to pitch Game 1.
Keuchel is pitching well and has recently submitted a 3.07 ERA letting 14 earned runs on 43 hits including four home runs, 15 walks allowed and 31 strikeouts spanning 41 innings of work. He did not confront the Cardinals so those results are unworthy for this playoff game.
He has turned into a stud in road starts this year. Hes compiled a 2.74 ERA with a 1.155 WHIP in 10 starts spanning 62??2/3 innings of work.
There are only five current members and just Paul Goldschmidt includes a big sample size thats meaningful.
Hes batting only 0.167 (3-for-18) in 20 plate appearances without a home runs. Keuchel has a enormous edge going up from a lineup that has not faced him.
The Cardinals will hand the ball into right-hander Miles Mikolas (9-14, 4.16) for Game 1. Hes been a steady starter for the Cardinals this year.
Over his last seven starts he has compiled a 2-1 record with four no-decisions, a 3.67 ERA allowing 17 earned runs on 40 hits including six home runs, seven walks enabled, along with 38 strikeouts spanning 41??2/3 innings of work.
He has not performed in road games, however, making this pick by the Cardinals a head-scratcher. At 17 road starts this year he is 4-8 having a lofty 5.40 ERA plus a 1.415 WHIP spanning 88??1/3 innings of work.
The machine learning outline requires Keuchel to finish at least six innings of work, will complete innings than Mikolas, and will score in three or more innings. In past home games at which these performance measures have been met or surpassed by the Braves, theyve earned a 263-23 record for 92% winning MLB selections.
So, the bet is about the Atlanta Braves -136 preferred at 5Dimes Sportsbook.
