It’s the opening game of a weekend series between a pair of National League foes in the Mile-High City. The St. Louis Cardinals are on the road for the opening game of a four-game set with the Colorado Rockies Friday night.
Both teams are coming in off 3 game sweeps as St. Louis defeated Arizona at home while Colorado beat Pittsburgh at home.
Elías Díaz hit a three-run walk off homer to give the Colorado Rockies a rain-delayed 5-2 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday night
St. Louis Cardinals
St. Louis won their 3rd straight and their 4th in their last 5 games after a five-game skid as they picked up a win at home Wednesday night.
The Cardinals are tied for 3rd place in the NL Central with the Cincinnati Reds. They are 8 games back from the division leading Milwaukee Brewers. St. Louis is 8.5 games back from the San Diego Padres for the last wild card spot.
Nolan Arenado leads the Cardinals in nearly every offensive category in his 2nd year with the club. He has a team high .267 batting average with 51 RBI’s on 16 HR’s.
After a disappointing 1-4 road trip, the Rockies record dropped to an abysmal 6-31 away from Coors Field. Colorado definitely thrives in the mile high environment as they are 28-16 in their home park.
They enter this series with momentum after sweeping the Pittsburgh Pirates in 3 games. They outscored the Pirates in a dominating 16-2 advantage.
Even with the small win streak the Rockies are still far off pace to make the playoffs. It doesn’t help they’re in the loaded NL West which the 3 top teams in the division make up the best 3 records in the National League. Colorado is currently 17 games back from the division leading San Francisco Giants.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Cardinals are 40-42 overall
- Cardinals are 17-24 on the road
- Colorado is 35-47 overall
- Colorado is 29-16 at home
St. Louis Cardinals vs. Colorado Rockies MLB Prediction:
Both teams are coming into this matchup with momentum after beating far inferior opponents at home.
Neither of these pitchers have been great this season but in an environment such as Coors Field it definitely tends to play in favor of the home team.
Colorado has been far better at home this year than on the road while St. Louis has struggled away from Busch Stadium.
I see the Rockies winning a high scoring affair in game 2 of this 4 game series.
