Moneyline pick, best player prop for Cardinals vs. Braves on Saturday

We go over some of the best betting options for Saturday’s matchup between the St. Louis Cardinals and Atlanta Braves.

The Atlanta Braves will be looking for a third consecutive win against the St. Louis Cardinals when the two teams meet Saturday. The home team has struggled to get going this season and is 5.5 games out of the NL East lead while the Cardinals look to break out of a rut of their own. St. Louis was eight games above .500 May 13 and looking great, but has fallen back to .500 after some losing streaks.

Cardinals vs. Braves, 7:15 p.m. ET

Moneyline pick: Cardinals +104

Adam Wainwright has struggled for St. Louis this season, but Braves starter Drew Smyly has a 5.63 ERA. Expect the Cardinals to get after him in this game and snap their losing streak in the process.

Player Prop: Paul Goldschmidt to hit a home run (+325)

Goldschmidt has matched his home run totals for April and May so far in the month of June and seems to heating up. A matchup against a struggling pitcher gives him a great chance to deliver on this prop.
