The St. Louis Cardinals will host the Chicago Cubs at Busch Stadium in St. Louise, Missouri on Friday, August 7, 2020 8:15 P.M, ET. The Cardinals are back to playing baseball after their brief absence in the season. The Chicago Cubs just came out of a series against the Kansas City Royals, where they won 3 games out of 4. They scored 2-0 in game 1, 5-4 in game 2, and 6-1 in game 3. Their only loss in the series was devastating, where they got destroyed at the score of 13-2. The Cubs are still in the top spot in the National League with a record of 10-3, and are 1st in the NL Central Division.

The Cubs missed the playoffs for the 1st time in 5 years, which might be the reason for their hot start this season. To make up for their disappointment last season, they are playing their best baseball to take the top spot in the NL this early. Their dominance is evident after defeating all 4 teams that they faced. The Brewers, Reds, Phillies, and Royals were all no match for the blazing Cubs. Their last game is one of those off games every team faces, and will most likely not be the same for the rest of the season. The Cubs were 9-0 in the 4th inning, and allowed 11 hits in that game. Starter Tyler Chatwood allowed 11 hits, and 8 earned runs in just 2.1 innings. Jon Lester will start for the Cubs in game 1 of the series. Lester went 13-10 with a 4.45 earned run average, with 165 strikeouts in 171.2 innings last year. He is 1-0 with a 0.82 ERA with 5 strikeouts in 11 innings this year.

Chicago Cubs vs St Louis Cardinals Predictions 8/7/2020

It will be interesting to see the Cardinals after their games were all postponed after an outbreak of Covid 19 in their staff. The squad only played for 5 games this season, and they look to collect  some wins after winning just 2 games so far. Their last game was a 3-0 loss against the Minnesota Twins and are sitting just 1 win from a .500 average. Paul Goldschmidt is the only player doing good this season with his 6 hits, 4 runs, and a solo home run at a .316 batting average. The Cardinals are now in the 10th spot of the National League with a 2-3 record, and are 3rd in the NL Central Division. Jack Flaherty will start for the Cardinals in their 1st game back. He put up an 11-8 record with a 2.75 ERA and 231 strikeouts in 196.1 innings last year.

Chicago Cubs vs St. Louis Cardinals. MLB’s pick for the series opener will go to the Chicago Cubs -120. The Cardinals might be rusty after 1 week of non baseball action. This game will be close though as both teams have 2 strong starting pitchers in play. The Cubs are 2-6 in their last 8 games against the Cardinals, but with how they are playing this season this deficit will surely be a thing of the past. Chicago’s momentum in the season is their slight edge on this one at 6-2.
