St. Louis Cardinals 2024 Season Preview

The St. Louis Cardinals are hoping to have a better season in 2024 after a tough year in 2023, when they had their first losing record since 2007. The Cardinals finished the 2023 season with a 71-91 record.

The Cardinals made some changes in the offseason, including signing free agent pitcher Sonny Gray to help their starting rotation. However, Gray is already hurt and will miss the start of the season. The Cardinals will also be without a few other key players like outfielder Lars Nootbaar and utility player Tommy Edman when the season begins due to injuries.

When the Cardinals are at full strength, their lineup has some big stars like first baseman Paul Goldschmidt, third baseman Nolan Arenado, and top prospect Jordan Walker. The team is hoping that players like Dylan Carlson and Nolan Gorman can have better years to help the offense, which was below average in 2023. On the pitching side, the Cardinals will rely on veteran starters like Miles Mikolas, Kyle Gibson, and Lance Lynn, along with some younger pitchers like Zack Thompson.

The bullpen also has some question marks, with closer Ryan Hesley coming off an injury-filled 2023 season. Experts think the Cardinals will win around 85 games in 2024, which should put them in the mix for a playoff spot in the tough NL Central division. Let's see what the year will bring!

Betting on the St. Louis Cardinals

Check out below the betting options:

Cardinals Spread (Run Line)

When betting on baseball, you’ll be faced with three standard options: the moneyline, over/under and run line.

The run line is a bet on the margin of victory, like a point spread. But because baseball is low scoring, the spread will almost always be -1.5 for the favorite and +1.5 for the underdog. The payouts for each will just be adjusted based on each team’s strength.

Here’s a brief example of a run line for a hypothetical Cardinals game:

  • Los Angeles Angels (+1.5)
  • St. Louis Cardinals (-1.5)

As shown above, the Cardinals are favored by 1.5 runs against the Angels; the minus sign (-) indicates St. Louis is the favorite, while a plus sign (+) is used to denote the underdog. Bettors who wanted to back St. Louis here would be “laying” those 1.5 runs, meaning for their bets to cash the Cardinals would need to win by two runs or more. Bettors who selected the Angels +1.5 would win if Los Angeles won outright or kept a loss to 1 run.

Cardinals Moneylines

Many first time bettors are wary of run line bets, especially when riding with the hometown team. In that case, moneyline wagers are often seen as the safer way to go. A moneyline bet is a bet on who wins the game -- no run line involved.

Let’s use the same example from before to understand the moneyline better:

  • Los Angeles Angels +150
  • St. Louis Cardinals -180

Just as with run lines, the minus sign (-) signifies a team is favored, while the plus sign (+) means a team is the underdog. The moneyline odds, written in American odds format here, indicate how big or small a favorite that team is, written in increments of $100. For example, to win $100 on the Cardinals, a bettor would need to risk $180. On the flip side, a $100 bet on the Angels would net $150 if they pulled the upset.

Odds can differ from sportsbook to sportsbook, so always make sure you shop for the best line with The Action Network app.

Cardinals Over/Unders

Betting on a team to win or cover a run line isn’t the only type of wager allowed on MLB games. Almost all sportsbooks will offer a total on the game, also known as an over/under. This bet is not on the winner of the contest, but on the number of runs the two teams will combine to score; sportsbooks hang a number, and bettors can wager either over or under that total.

If the number for our hypothetical Cardinals-Angels matchup was 8 runs, over bettors would require 9 points or more to cash their tickets, while those who bet the under would need 7 or fewer runs. If the two teams scored exactly 8 runs between them, that bet would push and all wagers would be refunded.

Cardinals Props

Some bettors find more entertainment and success betting on more specific outcomes than the result of the game. Prop bets cover a wide market of wagers on player stats, discrete in-game events, and any style of yes/no question. Many props are bets on specific players and their performance, such as betting Nolan Arenado over 1.5 hits on a given night, or betting that Adam Wainwright will strike out over 9.5 batters. Some props can be shorter term, such as betting on the number of runs scored in the first five innings or who will hit a home run. Offerings tend to vary depending on the sportsbook, so use our sportsbook reviews to find the best bet for you.

Cardinals Futures

Expectations are high right now in St. Louis, so bettors will have to shop for the best line to get good odds on Cardinals futures bets. Futures are bets that focus on long term outcomes, like the Cardinals to win the NL Central, win the National League Pennant, win the World Series, or even in dividual awards like winning league MVP.
