The Chicago Cubs will take on the St. Louis Cardinals at Wrigley Field, in Chicago, Illinois on Wednesday, August 19, 2020 5:20 P.M, ET. This will be the 2nd game of the day as both teams will take part in a double header. The Cardinals will play more double headers in their upcoming schedule to make up for their absence due to Covid 19 issues. The Cardinals took game 1 of this series with a score of 3-1, but lost the 2nd and 3rd game at 5-4, and 6-3. The St. Louis Cardinals are now 10th in the National League with a 5-6 record, and are 2nd in the NL Central Division.

It’s been a rough season for the Cardinals with issues on Coronavirus having to play without the full force of their team. The squad split their last 6 games and scored 10 total runs in the last 3. They are just 1 win short of getting the .500 win percentage. Paul Goldschmidt is their best player for the season with his 14 hits and 4 runs batted in while batting at a .359 average. The Cardinals aren’t so good with the bat in their limited number of games with an average of .222 which is 25th in the league, while they have only 41 runs made since they played for only 11 games this season. Pitching is a different story as their bullpen is playing decently with 3.87 earned runs allowed per game which is 7th in the league. They need to step up with a series of double headers if they wish to salvage what’s left of a shortened season. No starting pitcher was mentioned in the 2nd game of the double header.

Chicago Cubs vs St Louis Cardinals Predictions 8/19/2020

Chicago is playing well this season, despite its recent 4 game losing streak, they bounced back with 2 straight wins against the Cardinals. The team scored 12 runs in their last 3 games, and are doing great with .682 win percentage. Ian Happ is on fire for the team recording 21 hits, 13 RBIs, 5 home runs on a .313 BAA. Javier Baez who played well for the Cubs in the past seasons, is having a slump this season, which should be a cause for concern.  The Cubs are doing a fine job with pitching with a team ERA of 4.06 which is 11th in the league. The squad’s offensive output isn’t that great with a BAA of .232 which is in the lower half in ranking at 21st spot. The Cubs are in the 2nd spot of the National League, with a 15-7 record, and are 1st in the NL Central Division.

Chicago Cubs vs St. Louis Cardinals. MLB’s pick for the 2nd game of the double header will go to the Chicago Cubs -150. Both teams are going in blind without any information on who the starting pitchers are. The Cardinals are getting used to playing double headers and might use that experience to their advantage. Unfortunately, this won’t happen in this game as they are facing a good Chicago team who has played well this season. Minus the starting pitchers looking at their current series, Chicago has the better roster compared to an incomplete Cardinals team. Chicago beat the Cardinals more times in their recent games with a 4-2 record in their last 6 meetings. The Chicago Cubs will win this round to a predicted score of 3-2.
