The Milwaukee Brewers look for a win here to get a game above a .500 record. The Brewers have scored 11 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in three of their six games. The Brewers have won 15 straight games when scoring four or more runs. Omar Narvaez leads the Brewers with seven hits and five RBI while Christian Yelich and Avisail Garcia have combined for 11 hits and one RBI. Corbin Burnes gets the ball, and he is 0-1 with a 1.42 ERA and 11 strikeouts this season. Burnes is 1-2 with a 6.41 ERA and 33 strikeouts in his career against the Cardinals.

Nolan Arenado leads the Cardinals with nine hits and three RBI while Paul Goldschmidt and Tommy Edman have combined for 15 hits and three RBI.

The Brewers are 1-4 in their last 5 during game 1 of a series and 2-6 in their last 8 overall. The Cardinals are 4-0 in their last 4 during game 1 of a series and 16-7 in their last 23 Thursday games. The under is 13-4-1 in Brewers last 18 Thursday games. The under is 4-0 in Cardinals last 4 home games. The under is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in St. Louis and 5-1-1 in the last 7 meetings.

The St. Louis Cardinals could possibly be the better team here and have an edge at home, but backing Wainwright is tough after what we saw from him in his season opener. Wainwright is a shell of himself at 39 years old. Burnes had 11 strikeouts in his season debut against the Twins, and it's only a matter of time before the Brewers offense breaks out. I'll side with the Milwaukee Brewers because of the starting pitching matchup.
