First pitch for the Los Angeles Dodgers' showdown with the St. Louis Cardinals is scheduled for 7:45 pm EST at Busch Stadium in St. Louis. The red-hot Dodgers (-120) are off to an incredible start to the season and are favored over the Cardinals (+104) despite playing on the road, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

It's always a good idea to consult some experts before placing a bet on a marquee matchup such as this one, so let's take a look at what a few from around the industry are saying about Monday night's game.

The staff at ATS Stats is picking the Dodgers to take the first game of the series, giving the L.A. club a 70.37 percent chance of winning.

Tonys Picks

The Tony Telez is also picking Los Angeles to win Monday night, noting that the Dodgers have won seven of their last 10 games against the Cardinals in St. Louis.

Cappers Picks

As is the case with the two experts above, the staff over at Cappers Picks is predicting a Dodgers victory. They note that Los Angeles' offense might be too hot for the Cards to handle and Dodgers starter, Hyun-Jin Ryu, looks poised to shut down their slumping lineup.

Overall, all three of the highlighted experts are taking the Dodgers to win Monday night on the road.
