Preview

The St Louis Cardinals and the Miami Marlins meet again to play a 3-game series at the Busch Stadium. The Cardinals lost their last series against the Cubs and the Marlins lost 2 of 3 games vs Mets and are 1-2 against the Cardinals this season. 

St Louis Cardinals

The Cardinals get here with a 41-34 record and have lost 3 of their last 4 games. The team is averaging 4.7 runs and allowing 3.9 runs per game. Paul Goldschmidt leads the team with 18 home runs and batting for .337 AVG with 62 RBI so far.

Miles Mikolas leads the pitching staff with a 2.57 ERA, 78 strikeouts and 5 wins recorded with the Cards.

Probable Pitcher: 

Adam Wainwright (5-5, 3.32 ERA) will take the mound in the 1st game of the series for the Cardinals. In 4.2 innings against the Brewers on Wednesday, Wainwright gave up four runs on seven hits, a walk, and seven strikeouts. He made no contribution to the choice. He is 7-2 with an ERA of 2.99 and 82 strikeouts in 15 appearances versus the Marlins in his career.

Miami Marlins

The Marlins get here with a 33-38 record and have won 4 of their last 6 games. The team is averaging .245 at bat scoring 4.5 runs per game and allowing 4.2 runs.  Jazz Chisholm Jr leads with 14 home runs, 45 RBI and batting for an average of .255. 

Sandy Alcantara is leading the team with a 1.95 ERA, 94 strikeouts and 7 wins recorded.

Probable Pitcher: 

Pablo Lopez (5-3, 2.61 ERA) will start for the Marlins in the 4th game of the series. Wednesday against the Rockies, Lopez won after pitching seven innings with six strikeouts and one unearned run allowed on four hits and three walks. He has a 1-1 record with an ERA of 1.74 and 20 strikeouts in 3 appearances versus the Cardinals in his career.

BETTING TRENDS

Miami are 1-8 SU in their last 9 games against St. Louis.

Miami are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games on the road.

St. Louis are 9-4 SU in their last 13 games at home.

The total has gone UNDER in 7 of St. Louis' last 8 games when playing at home against Miami.

Prediction

The Cardinals have struggled lately as they have lost 6 of their last 10 games but they're 8-1 in their last 9 games against the Marlins and will send Adam Wainwright to the mound who dominated them earlier this season. The Marlins lost their last series and haven't been profitable on the road with a 14-22 record. Pablo Lopez also dominated the Cards before pitching 7 scoreless innings. Expect a great pitching duel between these two aces and both offense to struggle. Take the under.

PICK: Under 7.5 (-110)
