The Dodgers were able to win Game 2 of this series and they have won eight of their last ten games. Los Angeles has played great baseball over the last month or so, but they will have Noah Syndergaard on the mound, who has pitched better in recent starts, but does not have very good numbers this year. Syndergaard has allowed 12 earned runs over his last 14.1 innings pitched. St. Louis is starting Miles Mikolas, who has allowed five earned runs over his last 22.1 innings of work. I like the Cardinals in this matchup.
