MLB Baseball Gambling Total:
The San Francisco Giants have been great this year and they will now present a pretty tough challenge for the home Cardinals who will look to claw themselves closer to .500 when the two teams meet at Busch Stadium on Saturday.
San Francisco Giants
The San Francisco Giants won their last 4 games on the trot heading into the All-Star break and they certainly have the ability to carry over that momentum here and that would be bad news for Cardinals fans here on Saturday.
This team basically does everything well, as they play the style of baseball like an Oakland A’s or a Tampa Bay Rays team, but actually have an excellent batting lineup to back up all that pitching and defense.
Anthony DeSclafani will head to the hill for San Francisco and he should have what it takes to go deep in this game based on his most recent outings, as he has only allowed 2 runs in his last two games which has spanned 14.2 innings.
St. Louis Cardinals
The St. Louis Cardinals have simply not lived up to expectations this year, as the currently have a 44-46 record and find themselves 8 games back of the Milwaukee Brewers atop the NL Central and at this point they look like they will be tough to catch.
St. Louis does have some solid players though, and are perfectly capable of making a run here at the end of the season, and that will be even more likely if this bullpen could just improve a little bit.
This has also been one of the more exciting teams to watch, as although they do not score runs at an elite level, they do hit a ton of home runs with this batting lineup having 4 guys who have already hit 12 or more.
They also have the luxury of having one of the best hitting catchers in the league with Yadier Molina still getting at done and further padding his already Hall of Fame level stats with another 8 home runs this season.
Free San Francisco Giants vs. St. Louis Cardinals MLB Prediction:
It is hard to tell if St. Louis is going to go on a run during the second half of the season, but I do not think it is going to stat with this series against the Giants who are just playing too well at the moment to really want to side with the home team here.
DeSclafani has great recently as well and for most of the season and he is perfectly capable of putting in a quality start here and putting his team in a position to pick up this important road victory.
It is important, however, to keep an eye out for the news prior to first pitch as we have not yet gotten news about a starter for the St. Louis Cardinals and based on who it is that could very well change things, as the Cardinals do have some excellent starters in their own right.
