The Cardinals have been disappointing this season and they currently sit with a 9-13 record overall. On Sunday the Cardinals scored seven runs and that was enough to by four runs against the Mariners. Nolan Gorman has hit six home runs and driven in 22 RBIs. On the mound for the Cardinals is Jordan Montgomery who sits with a 2-2 record and an ERA of 4.84. In his last start against the Diamondbacks he went four innings giving up ten hits and seven runs.

The Giants come into this game with an 8-13 record overall and in the last game against the New York Mets the Giants were able to secure the 5-4 victory. Mike Yaztrezemski finished with two hits and one RBI. The Giants offense is ranked 16th in the league while the defense is ranked 25th in the league.

Over is 4-0-1 in Cardinals last 5 games vs. a starter with a WHIP greater than 1.30. Under is 4-0 in Cobb's last 4 starts vs. National League Central. Over is 3-0-1 in Giants last 4 games following a win. 

Shane’s Free Pick

These are both teams who have disapointing starts to the season, but the Giants have an advantage on the mound. Alex Cobb sits with an ERA of 2.79 and he’s going to lockdown again in this game. I don’t trust the Cardinals offense, and the Giants are going to get the job done. Back the Giants on the money line. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
