St. Louis is 2-5 in their last 7 games and 3-14 in their last 17 game one’s of a series. The under is 4-1 in St. Louis’ last 5 Friday games. Los Angeles is 80-38 in their last 118 games and 0-5 in their last 5 Friday games. The over is 5-0 in Los Angeles’ last 5 games. St. Louis is 2-8 in these two teams last 10 head to head meetings in LA.


Both of these teams have had some struggles to start the year, but the Cardinals come into this series with a 10-16 record and will be on the road. The Dodgers have played better over the last week or two, but they couldn’t get by the pesky Pirates in their last series. The Dodgers will have Dustin May on the mound, who has allowed two earned runs or fewer in four of his five starts this year. I like the Dodgers in this matchup.
