New York is 6-1 in their last 7 road games and 1-6 in their last 7 Wednesday games. The over is 4-1 in New York’s last 5 Wednesday games. St. Louis is 5-3 in their last 8 games against the NL East and 35-18 in their last 52 games. The over is 5-1-2 in St. Louis’ last 6 home games. The over is 20-9-3 in these two teams last 32 head to head meetings.

Carrasco has started the season red hot for the Mets and will be going up against Steven Matz, who has pitched much better after allowing 7 runs in his first start of the season. The Mets have won the first two games of this series and the Cardinals will be pushing to get on the board here. This has all of the makings of a pitcher’s duel, so I am taking the under.
