Arizona Diamondbacks vs St Louis Cardinals

Where: Busch Stadium When: Friday, July 12, 2019, 8:15 pm Eastern

We have a National League MLB matchup to consider for Friday night when the Arizona Diamondbacks and St Louis Cardinals meet for game one of their three-game series. The Diamondbacks is second in the NL West and is undecided as to who will start the game against the Cardinals. St Louis is third in the NL Central and scheduled as their probable pitcher righty Adam Wainwright. I’m the Flash and will be discussing this game with you today.

Diamondbacks Three-Game Winning Streak

The Diamondbacks is 13.5 games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers in the division standings and has outscored their opponents by 53 runs this season and boast a 26-23 record away from Chase Field this season. Arizona has won six of its last 10 games and enters Friday night hoping to extend a three-game winning streak.

Infielder Ketel Marte leads Arizona with 20 bombs and a .311 batting average and infielder Eduardo Escobar leads the Diamondbacks with 67 RBI.

Arizona isn’t listing any significant injuries for their series with the Cardinals. The Diamondbacks is undecided as to who will get the start but whoever that will be is up against a Cardinals side scoring an average of 4.5 runs per game with 46 home runs at Busch Stadium this season.

Cardinals Two Game Losing Streak

The Cardinals reside in third place in the NL Central and has lost six of its last ten games and enters Friday night hoping to end a two-game losing streak. St Louis has outscored its opponents by two runs and has a 24-18 record at Busch Stadium this season. Outfielder Marcel Ozuna leads St Louis with 20 home runs and 62 RBI and catcher Yadier Molina leads the Cardinals with a .261 batting average.

St Louis isn’t listing any significant injuries for their series with Arizona. Wainright (5-7, 4.31 ERA) has a 1.38 WHIP and his 4.30 xFIP suggests what you see is probably what you’re going to get. The veteran righty strikes out 8.42 per nine innings with 3.70 walks and 1.23 bombs allowed per nine innings pitched.

Arizona leads the National League with 5.5 runs scored away from home and has belted 83 home runs and has 87 home runs against right-handed pitching this season.            

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Arizona scores 5.5 runs away from Chase Field and is up against Wainright who has been good at home this season. Arizona is a better road team than home and the Cardinals score just 4.5 runs per game at Busch Stadium. The Diamondbacks enter this series playing very good ball and I suspect that will carry over into Friday night. Cash with the Flash and play Arizona to beat the Cardinals.

Prediction: Diamondbacks

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Wainright has been good at home and St Louis doesn’t score very well in the pitcher-friendly Busch Stadium. I saw the following trends I think might be helpful for Friday night.

  • Under is 7-0 in Wainwright’s last 7 home starts vs. Diamondbacks.
  • Under is 8-1 in Wainwright’s last 9 starts vs. Diamondbacks.
  • Under is 5-1-1 in the last 7 meetings in St. Louis.

Cash with the Flash and play UNDER on Friday night.

Prediction: Under 8.5 Runs
