St. Louis is 1-5 in their last 6 games and 1-4 in their last 5 Thursday games. The over is 7-2 in St. Louis’ last 9 Thursday games. San Francisco is 5-0 in their last 5 games and 5-17 in their last 22 Thursday games. The under is 3-2-1 in San Francisco’s last 6 home games. St. Louis is 0-5 in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings in San Francisco. 


The Giants come into this game looking for the series sweep and they have played very well over their last few games. These two teams are trending in opposite directions and St. Louis is 0-5 in their last 5 games in San Francisco. The Cardinals are starting Miles Mikolas, who has pitched better in his last two starts, but was really bad in his first few starts. The Giants will turn to Logan Webb, who has allowed seven earned runs over his last 19.2 innings pitched. I like the over in this game between two pitchers that have had some issues to start the year.
