St Louis Cardinals vs Cincinnati Reds 7/23/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The St. Louis Cardinals will meet with the Cincinnati Reds in MLB action in Great American Ball Park, OH, on Saturday, July 23, 2022, at 6:40 PM ET.

 

After a good start to the year, St. Louis will be searching for stability over the second half of the year. However, because of their patchy performance, the Cardinals were never able to influence the National League Central.

 

Earlier this month, they went through a skid of losing six of seven matches before recovering with five victories in their final seven matches before the break.

 

Before the series finale against Cincinnati was postponed last Sunday, St. Louis captured two straight matches against them.

 

The Cardinals are tied with Philadelphia for the last NL Wild Card berth, but they are trailing Milwaukee in the NL East standings by a half-game.

 

On Saturday, Steven Matz, a left-handed pitcher, is scheduled to start for St. Louis. Last weekend, he was activated off the 15-day disabled list (shoulder).

 

Matz is making his first appearance since May 22, and his most recent outing for a rehab stint was last Tuesday for 4.1 innings. This season, his record in the big leagues is 3-3 with a 6.03 ERA.

 

  • The total went OVER in 5 of St. Louis’ last 6 matches. 
  • The St. Louis Cardinals are 8-3 SU in their last 11 matches against Cincinnati. 
  • The total went UNDER in 5 of St. Louis’ last 6 matches on the road.

St Louis Cardinals vs Cincinnati Reds Predictions 7/23/2022

 

It is reasonable to say that Cincinnati was not able to bounce back from a terrible season-opening performance. In 2022, the Reds dropped 22 of their first 25 games, and since then, they consistently finished significantly below.500.

 

They have 66 matches played since the sluggish start, and they are just four matches below.500; this gives them a foundation for the second half.

 

Earlier this month, Cincinnati had a five-game unbeaten run before dropping three of its last four matches before the All-Star break. 

 

Mike Minor, a left-handed pitcher, is scheduled to start for Cincinnati on Saturday. In his previous start against the Yankees, which went into extra innings, he gave up 5 runs on 5 hits, 3 walks, and 6 strikeouts.

 

Only one of those runs, though, was earned. Minor made three starts this month and has a 3.86 ERA and 1.29 WHIP. However, after pitching 42 innings in eight starts this year, he still has a dismal 6.21 ERA.

 

  • The total went OVER in 5 of Cincinnati’s last 5 matches. 
  • The Cincinnati Reds are 7-3 SU in their last 10 games. 
  • The total went OVER in 5 of the Reds’ last 5 matches against St. Louis.

St. Louis Cardinals vs Cincinnati Reds. The MLB pick for this game is the St. Louis Cardinals. St. Louis’ pitching situation has several red flags going into this game, but Cincinnati’s is just as terrible.

 

Minor has a 6.21 ERA going into this start and was not good this year. I do not have much trust in Minor on Saturday since he will be up against a Cardinals offense that was punishing poor pitching all season.

 

In this head-to-head series, St. Louis also dominated, capturing eight of the previous 10 games. Prior to the All-Star break, the Cardinals scored five of their final seven matches; I anticipate that momentum will continue into this series.

 

The St. Louis Cardinals will win by a predicted score of 7-4.
