Giants vs. Cardinals MLB Prediction

xAfter the Giants took the opener on Friday night at Busch Stadium, the Cardinals returned the favor with a victory last night in St. Louis. With the series split heading into Sunday, which side will win the rubber match at 2:15 p.m. ET today? Game Snapshot 909 San Francisco Giants (-130) at 910 St. Louis Cardinals (+110); o/u 8.5 2:15 p.m. ET, Saturday, July 17, 2021 Busch Stadium, St. Louis, MO San Francisco Giants DFS Notes Wilmer Flores went 2-for-3 and scored the Giants lone run in Saturday's loss to the Cardinals. Flores drew a walk off of Ryan Helsley to begin the seventh inning, took second on a passed ball and came around to score on an RBI single by Steven Duggar. That would be the only run the Giants would scratch out in the game. Flores also tallied a pair of singles in the contest and is now hitting .254/.333/.421 with nine homers and 30 RBI in 258 plate appearances on the season. St. Louis Cardinals DFS Notes Paul Goldschmidt launched a two-run homer on Saturday night, powering the Cardinals to a 3-1 victory over the Giants. Goldschmidt clobbered a 409-foot blast off of Anthony DeSclafani in the sixth inning, extending the Cardinals advantage to 3-0. He also singled twice in the contest, finishing the night 3-for-4. The 33-year-old continues to be a solid and capable first base option in mixed leagues, slashing .270/.340/.451 with 15 homers, 52 RBI and five stolen bases. Giants vs. Cardinals MLB Betting Prediction The Giants are certainly the better team when it comes this matchup, but they’ve now dropped eight of 10 at Busch Stadium following last night’s loss to the Cardinals. Thus, I believe the stronger play is the under today. The under is 11-4 in the Giants’ last 15 road games, is 5-2 in their last seven games versus a left-handed starter and has cashed in seven of their previous games coming off a loss. The under is also 7-3-2 in the Cardinals’ last 12 home games, is 27-11 in their last 38 games as a home dog and is 8-3-1 in their last 12 games coming off a win. MLB BETTING PREDICTION: GIANTS/CARDINALS UNDER 8.5
