St Louis Cardinals vs Houston Astros 3/23/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The St. Louis Cardinals will go against the Houston Astros in MLB action in FITTEAM Ballpark of the Palm Beaches West Palm Beach, FL, on Wednesday, March 23, 2022, at 1:05 PM ET. With a considerably stronger everyday roster, the St. Louis Cardinals should be the preseason divisional underdogs.

 

For the record, they should be generating a lot of interest in winning the National League and maybe the World Series, though the latter is still a long way off.

 

Edmundo Sosa might be the Cardinals’ full-time shortstop soon. He hit .271 with 3.2 WAR and a.735 OPS in 2021. With a 3.5 WAR based on a .285 average and .886 OPS, Willy Adames, Milwaukee’s 2021 trade signing, deserves to be considered superior at that position. However, shortstop is the one position in the starting lineup where Milwaukee has an edge.

 

  • The St. Louis Cardinals are 1-4 in their last 5 matches.
  • St. Louis is 19-19 in their road matches against the spread.
  • The totals went OVER in 14 of the Cardinals’ 34 last matches at home.

St Louis Cardinals vs Houston Astros Predictions 3/23/2022

 

The Houston Astros cemented themselves as a club to watch every year, after having strong postseason runs in each of the previous five years, culminating in a World Series championship in 2017.

 

Last year, the Houston Astros were unable to win their second World Series in club history after losing to the Atlanta Braves in the league championship. The Astros are hoping to return to the top in the season, but recent roster changes may present some issues.

 

Carlos Correa, who spent the previous seven seasons in Houston, will be the most noticeable departure for the Astros. Last season, the 27-year-old was a two-time all-star and placed fifth in the MVP race. Correa is outstanding throughout his tenure in Houston, but the Astros were unable to match the three-year, $105.3 million deal he signed with the Minnesota Twins due to his injury history.

 

Another factor that may have influenced the Astros’ decision is the presence of Jeremey Pena, who was lighting it up at triple-A. With Correa out of the way, Pena is anticipated to play a bigger role in the coming months.

 

  • The Houston Astros are 5-0 in their last 5 matches against the spread.
  • Houston is 17-15 in their road matches against the spread.
  • The totals went OVER in 24 of the Astros’ 39 last matches at home.

St. Louis Cardinals vs Houston Astros. The MLB pick for this game is the St. Louis Cardinals. While the Astros are guaranteed to be in contention for a title, the team’s expectations appear to be a touch too high.

 

While they did a good job of finding band-aid solutions for the guys they retained, the foundation of this Astros squad isn’t the same as the one that claimed the World Series in 2017.

 

Picking the under-on-season victories and preparing for the team to take a step back this season could prove to be a wise choice. The St. Louis Cardinals will win to a predicted score of 5-1.
