Preview

The St Louis Cardinals and the Toronto Blue Jays will play the 2nd game of the series at the Busch Stadium on Tuesday night. The Cardinals took the win in the first of the series.  Paul Goldschmidt hit a walkoff grand slam in the 10th inning Monday night, lifting the St. Louis Cardinals to a 7-3 victory.

Toronto Blue Jays

The Blue Jays get here with a 22-20 record and have lost 3 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 3.63 runs while allowing 3.85 runs per game. George Springer leads the team with .271 ERA, 24 RBI and 8 home runs. 

Alek Manoah leads the team with a 1.62 ERA and 43 strikeouts recording 5 wins for the Jays.

Probable Pitcher:

Kevin Gausman (3-3, 2.52 ERA) will be on the mound for the Blue Jays in the 2nd game of the series. Gausman took the loss against Seattle on Wednesday, pitching five innings and allowing two runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out three batters.

St Louis Cardinals

The Cardinals get here with a 24-18 record and have won their last 4 games. The team is averaging 4.55 runs and allowing 3.78 runs per game. Nolan Arenado leads with 9 home runs and batting for .294 AVG whit 32 RBI so far.

Adam Wainwright leads the pitching staff with a 2.87 ERA, 36 strikeouts and 5 wins recorded for the Cardinals.

Probable Pitcher: 

Jordan Hicks (1-3, 4.21 ERA) will take the mound in the 2nd game of the series for the Cardinals. Hicks pitched four innings against the Mets on Wednesday, allowing two runs on three hits and three walks while striking out five. He did not factor in the decision.

BETTING TRENDS

Toronto are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games against St. Louis.

Toronto are 1-7 SU in their last 8 games on the road.

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

The total has gone OVER in 4 of St. Louis' last 5 games against Toronto.

Prediction

The Cardinals offense continue to stay hot as they've scored an average of 8 runs per game in their last 5. The Blue Jays have struggled offensively and have averaged only 2.2 runs per game in their last 5 games. They have also lost 5 of their last 6 games against the Cardinals but with Gausman on the mound it's going to be complicated for the Cards this time. I'm going with the under.

PICK: Under 7.5 (-110)
