The St. Louis Cardinals will go against the Philadelphia Phillies in MLB action in Citizens Bank Park, PA, on Friday, July 1, 2022, at 6:05 PM ET.

 

For the sixteenth time this year, Miles Mikolas will start on the mound. In his most recent start against the Cubs, Mikolas turned in yet another excellent performance, allowing only one run over six innings to earn a no-decision in a game the Cards won.

 

Based on his statistics, the seasoned right-hander, who has a brilliant 2.57 ERA, 0.96 WHIP, and a 5-5 record in 94.2 innings of work, is essentially an ace yet to face off against the Phillies this year and gave up six runs in 13 innings overall.

 

Paul Goldschmidt hit another two home runs and drove in four runs in his previous five games, continuing his impressive play.

 

The 34-year-old great is having a season worthy of the MVP, hitting 19 home runs, shocking 65 RBIs, and a 1.04 OPS. Last year, Goldy had a 5 for 27 games with 3 RBIs against the Phillies.

 

The Cardinals are seventh in the Majors in terms of average runs scored per game with 4.78. With a 3.78 team ERA, the pitching staff is ranked 11th overall.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 4 of St. Louis’ last 6 matches. 
  • The St. Louis Cardinals are 4-8 SU in their last 12 matches against Philadelphia. 
  • St. Louis is 3-7 SU in their last 10 matches on the road.

St Louis Cardinals vs Philadelphia Phillies Predictions 7/1/2022

 

As a substitute starter, Bailey Falter will make his eighth start of the year. Falter struggled in his previous outing against the Nationals on June 17, surrendering three runs over five innings, earning a no-decision in a game the Phillies won 8-7.

 

The rookie left-hander, who started in three of his seven outings this season, struggled overall, with a 4.50 ERA, 1.40 WHIP, a 0-2 record in 20 innings, and other poor stats. In this match, Falter is facing the Cards for the first time in his short career.

 

In the absence of Harper, the Phillies need Nick Castellanos to step up. Castellanos had a difficult month of June, recording just nine RBIs.

 

The 30-year-old slugger only hit seven home runs, but he also has 37 RBIs and a.674 OPS. Last year, Castellanos had a stunning 1.1 OPS versus the Cardinals.

 

The Phillies are scoring 4.76 runs on average, which ranks them eighth nationally. With a 3.86 team ERA, the pitching staff ranks 15th in the major leagues.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Philadelphia’s last 5 matches against St. Louis. 
  • The total went OVER in 10 of Philadelphia’s last 14 matches at home. 
  • The Philadelphia Phillies are 5-2 SU in their last 7 matches at home against St. Louis.

St. Louis Cardinals vs Philadelphia Phillies. The MLB pick for this game is the St. Louis Cardinals. When Miles Mikolas is in the circle, the Cardinals make for a wise wager.

 

The right-hander is in good form right now, giving up only five runs overall in his past four outings, which included 29 innings. His numbers are even better on the road when he has a season ERA of 2.53. Eflin was scheduled to start this game for the Phillies, however, he was placed on the IL.

 

The Phillies’ starter Bailey Falter, who gave up 8 runs (five earned) in his past two starts that totaled just 8 innings, should be exploited by the Cards.

 

Bryce Harper and Jean Segura, two crucial players for the Phillies, are also out. The St. Louis Cardinals will win by a predicted score of 6-3.
