Chicago Cubs vs Saint Louis Cardinals

GAME:   #905 Cubs @ #906 Cardinals
DATE:     7/22/2021 - 7:15 p EST
ODDS:    Cubs +110 / Cardinals -120
O/U:        8.5 -105 / -115

The Saint Louis Cardinals (48-48) host the Chicago Cubs (47-49) at Busch Stadium on Thursday at 7:15 pm EST.  






  • Under is 3-0-1 in Alzolays last 4 starts when their opponent allows 2 runs or less in their previous game.
  • Under is 4-0 in Alzolays last 4 starts vs. National League Central.
  • Cubs are 0-4 in Alzolays last 4 starts as a road underdog.
  • The Cubs are 0-4 in Alzolays last 4 starts as an underdog.
  • Cubs are 1-7 in their last 8 road games vs. a left-handed starter.


  • The Cardinals are 0-4 in their last 4 Thursday games.
  • Cardinals are 0-6 in their last 6 during game 4 of a series.
  • Cardinals are 4-0 in Kim's last 4 starts on grass.
  • The Cardinals are 4-0 in Kim's last 4 starts.


  • The Cubs are 6-2 in the last 8 meetings.
  • Over is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.



The Cubs’ Alzolay has had a lot of success against the Cardinals holding the team batting average to a .167. The Cardinals' Kim has struggled against the Cubs as a team they have a team batting average of .276 with Beaz, Bryant, and Rizzo batting over .300. Bryant is listed as questionable for this game so you will want to know his status and the starting lineup before placing your final bets. The Cubs are hitting lefties at .245 and the Cardinals are hitting righties at .228. The Cubs have the better bullpen and let a great chance at a win slip away in the top of the 10th in last night's game. The Cubs should be ready to go today after that walk-off loss. Take the Cubs to get the job done today.
