Chicago Cubs vs St. Louis Cardinals.  The MLB pick is the St. Louis Cardinals at -192.  Chicago struggled on the diamond throughout this season, but that does not mean they do not have a chance to turn the tables around.  The bad news is, however, they will be facing St. Louis this Saturday, a team that packs a more skilled lineup of players.  Look for a good performance from Chicago, but the Cardinals’ hitting will outmatch the Cubs’ pitching.  Final Score Prediction, the St. Louis Cardinals win at 6-2.
