Two teams who are going in very different directions meetup this Friday, as the St. Louis Cardinals take on the Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona.
St. Louis Cardinals
From an overall perspective the Cardinals have looked great this year, but they have only won 2 of their last 6 games, so they are in a little bit of a mini-slump, but a series with the Diamondbacks should put them in a position to get back on track.
The starting rotation has been the main reason this team is doing as well as they are, as the starting 5 have delivered 16 quality starts already which is 6th in all of the major leagues, so if this batting lineup can get going this could be a very dangerous team.
Johan Oviedo is not one of the starters who has been contributing to those solid Cardinals pitching statistics however, as he enters the game with an ERA which is closing in on 6 and he has not been good as of late in particular.
The Diamondbacks are 3 and 19 in their last 22, so things have been going pretty poorly for them, as their hot start to the year is now a distant memory and it is unclear how this team will stop the bleeding.
Their last loss to the San Francisco Giants made it 10 losses on the trot, and one of the biggest issues has been the starting rotation, who has not been able to deliver one quality start up till this point which is pretty amazing.
The batting lineup did start out hot and was the main reason they got of to a flyer right out of the gates, but they have also since cooled and once this team stopped scoring runs it really showed the cracks in the foundation of this entire roster.
The Diamondbacks do not have a listed starting pitcher here, and that is very concerning because the St. Louis Cardinals have a very decent batting lineup on the other side of this equation, so whoever the D-Backs decide to send to the mound will need to be prepared to pitch well or this one will be over quick.

Free St. Louis Cardinals vs. Arizona Diamondbacks MLB Prediction:
This once again looks like a great opportunity to take the over, as the D-Backs can hit Johan Oviedo who has not been great this year, and the park itself lends itself to plenty of runs being scored. The Cardinals also have a solid batting lineup and with this total being at 9, it looks like a great spot to take the over with plenty of line value in those odds.
