The Milwaukee Brewers and St. Louis Cardinals face off on Thursday in an MLB showdown at Busch Stadium. 

The Brewers come into this game with a 28-16 record overall and they took two of three in the last series against the San Diego Padres. On Wednesday the offense only scored two runs, but that was still enough to win. The Brewers pitching has been strong all season and they are giving up only 3.77 runs per game. Rowdy Tellez has been the top player for the Brewers hitting nine home runs and driving in 33 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the St. Louis Cardinals who sit with a 24-19 record overall, but they lost their last game 8-1. Overall this season the Cardinals are averaging 4.84 runs per game which is 3rd best in baseball. Paul Goldschmidt has been the top player for the Cardinals hitting seven home runs and driving in 33 RBIs. In this game, the offense is going to need to be good.

On the mound for the Brewers is Eric Lauer who sits with a 4-1 record and an ERA of 2.16. In his last start against the Nationals, Lauer went seven innings and gave up only five hits and zero runs. 

On the mound for the Cardinals is Adam Wainwright who sits with a 5-3 record and an ERA of 2.87. In his last start against the Pittsburgh Pirates, he went seven innings giving up four hits and one run.

The Cardinals are 6-1 in Wainwright’s last seven home starts. The over is 5-0-1 in the Brewers' last six games against the National League Central. The over is 4-0 in Wainwright's last four home starts. The under is 4-0 in the Brewers last four games during Game 1 of a series. 

Both of these starting pitchers have been strong this season, and I expect runs are going to be hard to come by in this game. The Cardinals only scored one run in their last game, and they are going to have some issues scoring against Lauer. This game is going to be lower scoring and the under is going to cash.
