Julio Urias gets the ball, and he is 5-3 with a 3.61 ERA and 52 strikeouts this season. This will be Urias’ second career game against the Cardinals.
St. Louis Cardinals Betting Preview
The St. Louis Cardinals have scored 23 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 6 of their last 8 games. The Cardinals have won 6 of their last 7 games when scoring 4 or more runs. Paul Goldschmidt leads the Cardinals with 52 hits and 23 RBI, while Nolan Arenado and Willson Contreras have combined for 83 hits and 50 RBI.

The Dodgers are 42-14 in their last 56 Thursday games and 94-42 in their last 136 overall. The Cardinals are 2-6 in their last 8 home games and 4-1 in their last 5 overall. The under is 4-1 in Dodgers last 5 overall. The over is 10-3 in Cardinals last 13 overall. The Dodgers are 5-0 in the last 5 meetings.
The Los Angeles Dodgers are on one of those heaters, and getting in front of them probably isn't a good idea. Julio Urias is also enjoying a respectable season, while Adam Wainwright is still trying to find his footing, as he's pitched just 10 innings. The price is more than reasonable. Give me the Dodgers to keep this run going.
