Arizona is 6-1 in their last 7 Thursday games and 45-108 in their last 153 games. The over is 5-2-2 in Arizona’s last 9 Thursday games. St. Louis is 5-1 in their last 6 Thursday games and 8-3 in their last 11 home games. The under is 7-1 in St. Louis’ last 8 games. The under is 6-1 in these two teams last 7 head to head meetings in St. Louis.

Arizona is coming off of two very good wins against the Dodgers and will be full of confidence after the big series win. St. Louis has struggled lately and was involved in a benches clearing situation on Wednesday. I like the over in this game as I think it is set too low.
