Philadelphia Phillies vs St. Louis Cardinals: prediction for the MLB game
The Philadelphia Phillies just finished a three-game series against the Atlanta Braves. After losing games one and two (3:5 and 1:4, respectively), the Phillies managed to pull themselves together and crushed the opponents 14:4. The team had a fantastic second inning, during which they scored seven runs.
St. Louis Cardinals
The St. Louis Cardinals are in poor form. They mostly played at home recently but looked disappointing and delivered very average results: they won one out of three games against the Chicago Cubs, one of the NL outsiders (5:3). After that, they got two victories over the Miami Marlins before suffering a narrow defeat in the series finale.
In the last 5 head-to-head games, the teams didn't score more than 8 runs.
In 4 straight head-to-head games, the first inning was tied.
We are not expecting the Cardinals to suddenly start dominating, given their recent performance. The Phillies will be enjoying a home advantage, and they will hope to capitalize on it. In this match, we'll back the home team.
