It’s looking like a great series for the Cardinals to make up some ground in the NL Central (3.5 GB) as they will be big favorites over the next four games vs. the Marlins. That’s true for Monday as St. Louis is -212.
The Marlins are just 2-8 over their last 10 but one of those victories is a 9-0 win at home vs. St. Louis on June 12th. Overall the Cardinals had a stranglehold on the series winning the first two games by a combined score of 11-2 but Miami’s dominating win in the finale has to leave the Cardinals at least a bit weary for this week’s matchup.
The Marlins also scored a home 4-3 win vs. Pittsburgh over the weekend. Miami heads out on the road Monday after playing the last 9 in South Beach and the team is 12-19 going away on the year.
Elieser Hernandez makes his second straight start of the season after being in the bullpen for the early part of the year. It’s also his 2nd consecutive appearance against the Cardinals, going 5-2/3 while allowing 3ER last Tuesday.
St. Louis Cardinals
On Monday the Cardinals will be playing their first game at Busch Stadium in the last 10. It was a nice road swing going 5-5, but St. Louis looks to build on their 20-13 home record.
The Cardinals are 3.5 GB from the Brewers for 1st in the Central and also trail the Cubs by 2.5 games. You have to think that anything less than a sweep in this 4-game set vs. Miami will be considered a disappointment for Mike Schildt’s team.
Miles Mikolas was at the helm when the Marlins won 9-0 over the Cardinals last Wednesday. The right-hander will try to bounce back from a 5ER on 8 hits in 5.0 IP outing. Mikolas is 1-5 with a 4.93 ERA over his last 7 outings.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Marlins are 2-8 last 10 overall
- Marlins are 0-6 in Hernandez’s last 6 starts
- Cardinals are 4-1 last 5 home games
- Cardinals are 1-5 in Mikolas’ last 6 starts
- Marlins are 1-4 last 5 H2H meetings
