The St. Louis Cardinals will look to gain position in the NL Central and there is no better opponent to do just that against then the team who sits just half a game ahead of them in the standings, but the Reds will have other ideas as the two teams meetup at the Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati Ohio this Saturday.
St. Louis Cardinals
It is hard not to wonder just how good this Cardinals team could be if they could just get their offense going, as their pitching staff has been lights-out so far this year, but they just have not been able to give their starters the run support necessary to really be a contender.
They do have plenty of excellent bats in this lineup though, and it would not be all that surprising to see them make a run at the Milwaukee Brewers atop the division at some point this year.
Jake Woodford will be the starting pitcher in this spot and although it is over a small sample size he does have nice numbers against the Reds over the course of his career only allowing the Reds to hit .250 against him.
This Reds offense has been awesome so far this year, but it will be interesting to see how they respond, as Nick Castellanos hits the injured list with a wrist injury and he has been the heart and soul of this batting lineup here in 2021.
There are still plenty of guys who can get the job done with the bat, however, as this is a very deep batting lineup with the likes of Jesse Winker, Jonathan India and even Joey Votto who has been playing a bit better in recent times.
The Cincinnati Reds starting rotation has been great this year, and Luis Castillo will look to provide this team with another quality start and this guy has big time upside, but he has struggled with consistency, so if the good version of Castillo shows up that will make things very tough on the Cardinals here on Saturday.

Free St. Louis Cardinals vs. Cincinnati Reds MLB Prediction:
The Cincinnati Reds are a great team, but I am not sure they should be priced at -180 here, as you never really know what you will get out of Castillo and there is not that huge of a difference between these teams.
That is especially the case with the injury to Nick Castellanos, as I am not really sure how good this batting lineup is going to be without him, so I see the Cardinals as being live underdogs here on Saturday.
