The St Louis Cardinals and the New York Mets will play the 4th game of the series at the Citi Field on Thursday. The Mets outscored the Cards 11-4 in the third game and have the lead 2-1 in the series.

St Louis Cardinals

The Cardinals get here with a 20-17 record and have won 3 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 4.50 runs and allowing 3.50 runs per game. Nolan Arenado leads with 9 home runs and batting for .317 AVG whit 31 RBI so far.

Mike Mikolas leads the pitching staff with a 1.68 ERA, 36 strikeouts and 3 wins recorded for the Cardinals.

Probable Pitcher: 

Dakota Hudson (3-2, 3.06 ERA) will take the mound in the 4th game of the series for the Cardinals. Hudson earned the win Saturday against the Giants after throwing five scoreless innings, striking out two and walking two while allowing five hits.

New York Mets

Max Scherzer had a four-run lead in the sixth inning and he pulled himself from a start Wednesday night with discomfort in his left side before New York finished off an 11-4 victory

Probable Pitcher:

Chris Bassitt (4-2, 2.34 ERA) will be on the mound for the Mets in the 4th game of the series. Bassitt did not factor in the decision against Seattle on Saturday, completing 5.2 innings and allowing one run on five hits and three walks while striking out eight. He threw 6 scoreless innings the last time he faced the Cardinals.

BETTING TRENDS

St. Louis are 2-4 SU in their last 6 games against NY Mets.

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

NY Mets are 12-8 SU at home this season.

NY Mets are 24-12 SU against teams in the NL.

Prediction

The Cardinals were dominated by Bassit earlier this season and have lost 4 of their last 6 games against the Mets. Bassit is the better pitcher here and he's at his best right now. The Mets offense is on fire and will continue to pound the Cardinals bullpen. Take the Mets.

PICK: Mets ML (-165)
