The Milwaukee Brewers are ahead of the St. Louis Cardinals by 3 matches in the NL Central. They have a 29-20 record at home this year and a 4-4 record overall since the All-Star break.

 

Paul Goldschmidt and Nolan Arenado, two of the greatest all-around hitters in the league, are the centerpieces of the Cardinals’ lineup (.329 AVG, 24 HR, 78 RBI) (.290 AVG, 19 HR, 60 RBI). Tommy Edman leads the club in stolen bases with 21, and Dylan Carlson comes in fourth with eight.

Chicago Cubs vs St. Louis Cardinals. The MLB pick for this game is the St. Louis Cardinals. The Cardinals consistently outperformed the Cubs throughout the season, and they have a lot riding on this series.

 

Right now, the Cubs are only competing for pride, and I wouldn’t be shocked if at least one of their best hitters were traded before this match. This year, Wainwright performed well at home and most recently against the Cubs.

 

To beat the Cubs, who are 18-24 as a road underdog and 1-6 in their past seven matches after an off day, I’ll take the Cardinals, who are 21-11 as the home favorite this year. The St. Louis Cardinals will win by a predicted score of 6-3.
