USA. Major League Baseball
The St. Louis Cardinals have already played thirty fights on their field, but they managed to win only eight victories, which is the worst indicator not only this season, but also in recent years. Before the start of the season, the Pittsburgh Pirates baseball club strengthened with several good players, but although the team began to play better, it is still not as much as the management would like to.
St. Louis Cardinals
St. Louis were very good last year. Hosts advanced to the playoffs from the fourth place in the conference and in the first round knocked out Atlanta (3: 2). In the semifinals, the Cardinals failed to show anything in the series against Washington (0: 4) and left the tournament.
The Missouri club played only one meeting before the start of the new season. At home, they beat Kansas (6: 3).
Jack Flaherty has significantly improved his performance last season compared to 2018. In 196.1 innings, he struck 231 with a 0.97 WHIP.

Pittsburgh dropped and finished last season in the penultimate spot in the National League. The Pirates won only 42.6% of their matches, finishing second in terms of missed runs (911).
In the preseason guests could not win a single meeting. They played three games against Cleveland (3: 5, 7:11 and 3: 5) and lost all of them.
Joe Musgrove is hardly a strong pitcher. In 2019 he played a lot, but won only 11 out of 23 matches.
Pittsburgh are one of the weakest teams in the National League. “St. Louis” is preparing to be in the leaders of the conference from the first matches. Now hosts look much more preferable than their rival. We believe that Jack Flaherty will start the new season with a win and we propose to bet on the first with a negative handicap.
Our prediction is that St. Louis will win with a -1 handicap for 1.69 in BC 1xBe .
