The Cardinals need to improve their play if they want to gain ground in their division. This series is a good chance for them to do so with the Diamondbacks.
I have 0 confidence betting the Snakes in this one. I look for the Cardinals to have success in this one.
Kim does not have a great record, but he does have an ERA under 4. I feel he will be able to pitch a good game in this one and his team will be able to hit around Riley Smith.
I do not want to bet the moneyline here, so I will go with the Cardinals on the run line.
