Preview

The Arizona Diamondbacks and the St Louis Cardinals meet for the first time this season and will playa a 3-game series at the Busch Stadium in St Louis. The Diamondbacks beat the Dodgers 2 of the times in their last series and the Cardinals lost the series against the NY Mets.

Arizona Diamondbacks

The Diamondbacks get here with a 8-11 record after beating the Dodgers twice and secured the series. The team is averaging 3.00 runs per game and allowing 4.11 runs. Seth Beer is batting for .306 AVG and Dalton Varsho leads with 4 home runs and 9 RBI.

Merrill Kelly has 1 win recorded with a 1.69 ERA and 22 strikeouts so far. 

Probable Pitcher:

Humberto Castellanos (1-0, 3.00 ERA) will be on the mound for the Diamondbacks in the 1st game of the series. Castellanos had been on the paternity list since Sunday, but he'll rejoin the team for this game. He allowed 2 runs in 4 hits and 1 walk, striking out 5 across 5 innings against the Mets. 

St Louis Cardinals

The Cardinals get here with a 10-7 record after winning the 3rd game of the series against the Mets. The team is averaging 3.88 runs and allowing 3.06 runs per game. Nolan Arenado leads with 5 home runs and batting for .375 AVG whit 17 RBI so far.

Mike Mikolas leads with 1 win and a 1.21 ERA and 18 strikeouts. Wainwrigth has 2 wins already.

Probable Pitcher: 

Dakota Hudson (1-1, 3.95 ERA) will take the mound in the 1st game of the series for the Cardinals. Hudson earned the win over the Reds on Saturday, allowing two hits and four walks over 6.2 scoreless innings. He struck out four.

BETTING TRENDS

Arizona are 1-6 SU in their last 7 games against St. Louis.

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Arizona's last 6 games on the road.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of St. Louis' last 5 games at home.

St. Louis are 5-0 SU in their last 5 games when playing at home against Arizona.

Prediction

The Diamondbacks just beat the favorites to win the World Series and looks like this won't be like their last season. The Cardinals offense exploded in their last game against the Mets scoring 10 runs. Both starters were great in their last games so this could be a very close game and I think the play is the under.

PICK: Under 7.5 (-110)
