St. Louis is 6-0 in their last 6 games following a loss and 22-10 in their last 32 Saturday games. The over is 7-4 in St. Louis’ last 11 road games. Cleveland is 3-5 in their last 8 games and 4-11 in their last 15 game two’s of a series. The under is 20-5-2 in Cleveland’s last 27 home games. The under is 5-1 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings in Cleveland.


The Guardians continue to struggle offensively, but their pitching staff has a top 10 team ERA in the MLB. St. Louis has a very good offensive attack, but their pitching staff has started the year on the wrong foot. The Cardinals will start Jack Flaherty, who has allowed three earned runs or fewer in three straight starts. The Guardians will start Tanner Bibee, who has allowed two earned runs or fewer in four of his last five starts. I like the under in this game.
