The St. Louis Cardinals (66-83) host the Milwaukee Brewers (84-65) on Monday for the opening game of a four-game set. The Cardinals lost their last series to the Phillies, while the Brewers were able to win two of three versus the Nationals this past weekend. The season series is even at 3-3 between Milwaukee and St. Louis, and we should expect a competitive next four games.

Brewers vs Cardinals Match Details
Fixture: Milwaukee Brewers @ St. Louis Cardinals
Date & Time: Monday, September 18, 7:45 p.m. EDT
Venue: Busch Stadium, St. Louis, MO
The Cardinals’ Adam Wainwright toes the slab tonight, coming in with a 4-11 record and a 7.95 ERA. It’s been a disastrous year for the veteran right-hander, but St. Louis keeps trotting him out there. Wainwright has been bad all-around, but this will be his first start versus the Brewers in 2023. Milwaukee hasn’t hit well on the road this year, but St. Louis has lost seven of Wainwright’s past eight outings, which has to give the Brewers a lot of confidence.
Milwaukee’s Freddy Peralta gets the start tonight, carrying a 12-8 record and a 3.79 ERA. Peralta has been very reliable over the last few weeks, but earlier in the year, the Cardinals were able to get to him. St. Louis scored six off of Peralta in five innings back in May, and they would go on to win 18-1. Peralta pitched well against the Cards at home in April, but overall he doesn’t have a great track record against his divisional rivals.
Milwaukee Brewers vs St. Louis Cardinals Betting Prediction
The Brewers have a comfortable 6.5 game lead in the NL Central, and they can inch closer to clinching tonight. Wainwright settled down in his previous start, but he’s been the worst qualified pitcher in baseball this year. St. Louis hit Peralta hard last time he was here, and everyone has hit Wainwright hard, so take the over in tonight’s series opener.
