The Cardinals have won 4 of 5 against some quality teams in the Dodgers and Reds, but those were all at home. Now St. Louis embarks on a trip to the Big Apple, taking on the Mets as slight -115 road favorites.
There’s always a chance at a huge letdown for New York, who took two of three in an emotional Subway Series with the Yankees over the weekend on what was the 20th anniversary of 9/11. It shouldn’t be hard to get amped up in a matchup between two teams within three games of the NL wild card however.
St. Louis Cardinals
The Cardinals offense makes them a very tough team to back coming into Monday night’s series opener. The Redbirds have been held to 2 runs or less in 4 of the last 7, but have still managed to go 4-3 over that span. That’s a testament to pitching, and that should continue with Adam Wainwright on the hill Monday.
Wainwright had a mixed outing last time out, he gave up 4 ER last time out, but that was also against the Dodgers and while pitching 8-1/3 innings. The right-hander took a 5-2 lead into the 9th, so he tried to hang on probably a little longer than he should have.
Either way the Cardinals got the 5-4 win over LA in Wainwright’s last start, and he had held six straight opponents to 2 runs or less prior to that. That’s while pitching deep too, as Wainwright has gone 7 innings or better in 7 of the last 9.
The Cardinals have only three batters hitting better than .300 over the past week, so Wainwright probably needs another solid outing on Monday. Nolan Arenado is hitting under .200 over that span, but has hit a couple of HR with 8 RBI in his past 6 games.
New York Mets
The Mets try to avoid a letdown after taking 2 of 3 from the Yankees over the weekend. It was a nice bounce back after losing 2 of 3 in Miami to the Marlins last week, and taking the Subway Series has kept New York within 3 games of the wild card.
Being 3 games out of a postseason berth at this point in the season is optimistic, but New York also has four teams to jump. One of those is the Cardinals, who unfortunately happen to be red hot away from Busch Stadium going 11-5 over their last 16 road games.
St. Louis has also won six straight road games against a LH starter, meaning Rich Hill has a tough go of it on Monday night. The lefty has allowed 2 ER or less in 5 of his last 7 though, and is making his first appearance vs. St. Louis this season.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Cardinals are 6-0 last 6 vs. LH starter
- Cardinals are 11-5 last 16 road games

Free St. Louis Cardinals vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction:
Are Wainwright and Hill set to deal on Monday night? Both pitchers have been solid lately and each offense has an excuse to struggle – the Cardinals going on the road for the first time in over a week and the Mets after playing late Sunday and having an emotional weekend against the Yankees.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Under 8
It’s still an 80+ degree night in New York, but those nighttime temps are going to start dropping soon helping the pitchers.
