St. Louis Cardinals vs Chicago Cubs 5/9/2023 Picks Predictions Previews


The St. Louis Cardinals will go against the Chicago Cubs in MLB action at Wrigley Field, Chicago, on Monday, May 8, 2023, at 7:40 PM ET.


Before their series with the Cubs, St. Louis is in a slump after losing eight of its previous ten matches. However, the Cardinals did end their eight-game losing run on Sunday against Detroit by winning 12-6, which was very needed.


Can the Redbirds regain their position in the pennant race? The Cardinals rank 13th in team scoring with 4.46 runs per game, hit .259 (10th), and had a .747 OPS (14th).


This season, they rank 10th in home runs with 42 and 17th in base stealers with 22. The team’s leader in hits (43), batting average (.321), on-base percentage (.409), and home runs (7) is 1B Paul Goldschmidt.


With seven quality starts, the St. Louis pitching rotation has a 21st-place 4.59 ERA and a 26th-place 1.46 WHIP.


The visiting Redbirds play on Flaherty’s bump day on Tuesday. Against the LA Angels, he had a bad effort, giving up ten runs on nine hits in 2.1 innings.


His prior start against the Dodgers (4.2 innings, four earned runs, seven hits) wasn’t any better.


However, the right-hander went five or more innings in each of his first four starts of 2023 and may be on pace for a strong comeback start tomorrow.


Flaherty faced the Cubs 15 times in his career, going 3-3 with a 3.28 ERA with 71 strikeouts.


  • The total went OVER in 5 of St. Louis’ last 6 matches.
  • The St. Louis Cardinals are 2-8 SU in their last 10 matches.
  • The Cardinals are 5-0 SU in their last 5 matches against Chi Cubs.

Taillon will start for the home squad tomorrow. On May 4, he pitched three innings against Washington after being activated from the IL.


He gave up three runs on three hits and no walks. The right-hander missed a few weeks of action due to a groin ailment. Over his next several starts, anticipate him to pitch at a reduced rate until he feels fully recovered.
