St. Louis Cardinals vs. Milwaukee Brewers Betting Prediction

The St. Louis Cardinals are currently tied for first in the NL Central standings with the Brewers, so this could turn out to be a key series later in the season. The Cardinals most recently went 1-2 SU against the Red Sox and have won six of their last 10 games. Despite losing two games to Boston, the Cardinals managed to score 20 runs over the three games. The offense has been solid all season for St. Louis, averaging 4.80 runs per game. The first baseman Paul Goldschmidt is having an excellent season with a batting average of .344, 16 home runs, and 58 RBIs.  

After sweeping the Cincinnati Reds three games to none over the weekend, the Brewers managed to tie things up with the Cardinals for lead of the NL Central division. Milwaukee handled the Reds with ease, scoring a combined 18 runs while giving up 10. This has not been a common trend as of late, as the Brewers have lost 10 of their last 15 games. The offense has been a bit slow in their last 15 games, but are still averaging a respectable 4.30 runs per game on the season. The first baseman Rowdy Tellez has been one of their best hitters with a batting average of .253 (56-221), 10 home runs, and 39 RBIs.  

These teams have met eight times this season and have each won four games. It is tough to back the Brewers when they have lost have 10 of their last 15 games, however, Corbin Burnes has been awesome this year for Milwaukee and should be no different in this matchup. The Cardinals have not been great as of late either and I think they will struggle against Burnes just like they did earlier in the season. Backing the Brewers to cover the runline here in game-one.  

Score Prediction: Brewers 5, Cardinals 3
