Houston Astros vs St Louis Cardinals 3/28/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Houston Astros will go against the St. Louis Cardinals in MLB action in Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium Jupiter, FL, on Monday, March 28, 2022, at 1:05 PM ET.

 

The Astros claimed the American League championship for the third time in five seasons after 7 months of vitriol from throughout the sport but fell two victories short of a redemptive World Series championship. However, the window for them to win another title did not close completely.

 

Eight of their 9 everyday position players, as well as a burgeoning young starting pitching core, are expected to return in 2022. It’ll be necessary to fill Carlos Correa’s void at shortstop, but the return of Justin Verlander to the front of the rotation gives Houston one of the AL’s strongest pitching staff.

 

Last year, the Astros acquired Reggie Jackson, a New York Yankees great and Hall of Famer. Given the animosity between the two organizations, Jackson entered Houston owner Jim Crane’s inner circle of confidants – his formal position is “special adviser” to Crane — creating an unusual contrast.

 

Throughout the 2021 postseason, Jackson was seen sporting Astros gear, including a blue hat with “Mr. October” stitched in orange.

 

The Astros have the second-best World Series odds in baseball, following only the Los Angeles Dodgers. Houston boasts odds ranging from +900 to +1000, depending on the bookmaker, which is nearly twice as good as the Dodgers.

 

  • The Astros are 2-3 in their last 5 matches against the spread.
  • The totals went OVER in 2 of the Astros’ previous 5 matches.
  • The totals went OVER in 24 of the Astros’ 39 last matches at home.
