OVERs Galore When Phils, Cards Clash

Offense has been easy to come by when the Philadelphia Phillies and St. Louis Cardinals meet with the OVER cashing in seven of the past nine meetings between the two clubs. The Phillies and Cardinals have averaged a combined 10.7 runs in those meetings, but just 7.7 runs in their current series.

  • The Cardinals are 5-1 in their past six games hosting the Phillies.
