The St. Louis Cardinals and Los Angeles Dodgers will continue their three-game set on Tuesday at 10:10 p.m. ET. John Gant will be on the mound for the Cardinals, while David Price will start for the Dodgers. We’ll go over some ideal picks on DraftKings Sportsbook centered around the game here.

Cardinals vs. Dodgers, 10:10 p.m. ET, ESPN+

Moneyline pick: Cardinals +180

The Dodgers got back into the win column on Memorial Day with a 9-5 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals, snapping their three game losing skid. Los Angeles got it done at the plate and on the mound, which did not help them in their last series against the San Francisco Giants.

They will need a similar offensive output with David Price getting the start on Tuesday night. Price will be the opener for the Dodgers as he tries to continue his dominance at home this season. The southpaw has a 1.04 ERA and 12 strikeouts in 8.2 IP at home. As an opener, he has produced scoreless 4.2 IP in two starts this season.

However, the Cardinals will be a tough out with Gant on the mound. He’s been St. Louis’ second-best pitcher this year behind the likes of ace Jack Flaherty. The 28-year-old is 4-3 with an ERA of 1.81 through nine starts. Gant has been tremendous on the mound on the road, with a 2-1 record and 1.13 ERA this season. The Dodgers are an overwhelming favorite at -220 odds, but with it being a bullpen game, the Cardinals should be able to capitalize.

Player Prop: Max Muncy over 0.5 hits (-139)

Since we do not have any pitching props for the Dodgers, we are going to instead look at some hitting props for tonight’s game. Los Angeles second baseman Max Muncy is one of the hottest hitters on the team, recording a hit in four out of five games. This season, Muncy is slugging .558 with 13 HRs, 30 RBI and a .995 OPS.
