Trends

St. Louis is 19-9 in their last 28 game three’s of a series and 2-6 in their last 8 Wednesday games. The over is 7-1 in St. Louis’ last 8 games.

Pick

St. Louis started the season playing very poorly, but they have won three games in a row and have some momentum as they look for the series sweep in this game. Chicago has struggled over the last two weeks, but they do have a very good team ERA. Justin Steele has been great for the Cubs this season, as he has allowed two earned runs or fewer in five straight starts. I like the Cubs in this game.
