Preview

The Arizona Diamondbacks and the St Louis Cardinals will play the second game of the series at the Busch Stadium on Friday night. The Cardinals won the first of the series 8-3. Paul Goldschmidt drove in three runs, Nolan Arenado had two hits, Tommy Edman and Tyler O'Neill drove in two runs each for the Cardinals.

Arizona Diamondbacks

The Diamondbacks get here with a 8-12 record and are 3-5 on the road. The team is averaging 3.00 runs per game and allowing 4.15 runs. Seth Beer is batting for .283 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:

Madison Bumgarner (0-1, 1.00 ERA) will be on the mound for the Diamondbacks in the 1st game of the series. Bumgarner didn't factor into the decision during Sunday's 6-2 loss to the Mets, allowing an unearned run on four hits with four strikeouts. He pitched one game against the Cardinals last season and allowed 6 runs in only 4 innings. 

St Louis Cardinals

The Cardinals get here with a 11-7 record after winning their last 2 games. The team is averaging 4.44 runs and allowing 3.17 runs per game. Nolan Arenado leads with 5 home runs and batting for .382 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: 

Adam Wainwright (2-2, 3.86 ERA) will take the mound in the 1st game of the series for the Cardinals. Wainwright allowed four runs on eight hits and three walks over five innings Sunday, striking out three and taking a loss against the Reds. He pitched one game against the Cardinals last season and allowed 4 runs in 5 innings. 

BETTING TRENDS

Arizona are 4-13 SU in their last 17 games on the road.

Arizona are 0-6 SU in their last 6 games when playing on the road against St. Louis.

The total has gone OVER in 5 of St. Louis' last 7 games against Arizona.

The total has gone OVER in 5 of St. Louis' last 6 games at home.

Prediction

The Cardinals offense is still on fire as they have scored 10 and 8 runs in their last 2 games. They're going to face Bumgarner who hasn't been great against them. The Dbacks have the worst offense in the MLB and they'll be facing Adam Wainwright who's coming from a loss and allowed 4 runs in his last start. With that being said I think the total has been set to low so I'm going to take the over.

PICK: Over 7 (-110)
