Dodgers vs Cardinals: Major League Baseball NLDS Game 1 Prediction

An action packed day of Major League Baseball playoff action continues as Los Angeles hosts St. Louis in Game 1 of their National League Division Series. Aces are wild here as Adam Wainright leads the Cardinals against Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers. First pitch flies at 6:30 PM ET on October 3, 2014, at Dodger Stadium in sunny Southern California.

Los Angeles: Still backing up MLB preseason top chalk status

Posted as +700 MLB Championship chalk back in February, Los Angeles (94-68) took the first step towards the World Series by winning the NL West by six games over San Francisco. LHP Clayton Kershaw (21-3 ERA 1.77) gets the call for the Dodgers as he looks to get past the Cardinals after going 0-2 in the 2013 NLCS. Kershaw uncharacteristically gave up eight runs (seven earned) over ten innings pitched in those two contests. LA won both of Kershaw’s regular season starts vs the Cardinals as he shut them out 6-0 at home on June 29 and then gave up three runs in a 4-3 LA win on July 20 in St. Louis. It’s never wise to wager against the Krushinator.

St. Louis: Perennial contenders open another race to the Fall Classic

Back in the MLB postseason for the eleventh time in fifteen years, St. Louis (90-72) looks to win their third World Series Championship (2006 & 2011) in nine years. It took the Cardinals until the final day of the season to secure the NL Central pennant as they won the division by two games over Pittsburgh. 2014 MLB All-Star Game starter RHP Adam Wainright (20-9 ERA 2.38) opposes Kershaw and he won his last five starts of the season allowing just six runs over 39 innings pitched in September. Wainright went seven innings in the 2013 NLDS and gave up three runs in a 3-0 loss to Hyun-Jin Ryu at Dodger Stadium. The Cards ace gave up one run on five hits in a 1-0 loss at Chavez Ravine on June 26, 2014, in his only regular season start versus the Dodgers this season.

NLDS Game 1 Prediction: Clayton Kershaw and Adam Wainright have been like an ATM for us this year so we’re a little torn on this contest. In the end, we have decided to go with the Dodgers who we see as having the better offense in this match-up.
