St. Louis Cardinals vs Chicago Cubs Predictions and Odds: Should You Fade Justin Steele and the Cubs?

St. Louis Cardinals vs. Chicago Cubs Prediction

Justin Steele takes the mound for the Cubs and I love fading the man in most situations as is. Give me the Cardinals against this southpaw and I am ecstatic. In 37 PAs so far they have put up a .324 batting average and .379 wOBA while striking out just 8.1% of the time. It’s not a huge sample size by the Cardinals love to mash lefties and the stars align in this one here tonight.

Not only is it a home game but a rivalry game and the biggest one for the guys personally. Goldschmidt, Arenado, and Co. should lead the charge and the team is sporting a .779 OPS against southpaws this season. They are also 8-3 against them in their last eleven at Busch.

Miles Mikolas has really been terrific for St. Louis this season but has just gotten shafted a few times, to be honest. He is not the ace but has top-notch stuff and when he is on I love him on the bump. Tonight should be a good outing for him with a strong, healthy Cardinals lineup hitting behind him and momentum on their side.

The Cardinals' home games are special this year and they love to win for this city. I am not crazy about the money line juice but love the spot so here is how we are going to attack this one tonight.
