The St. Louis Cardinals are -115 at home in this game. The total for the game is set at 8.5 runs.

Paul Goldschmidt has been in a big time slump to start the season. The veteran first baseman is hitting .173 on the season. He has just one home run, which came on opening day. Nolan Arenado, another power threat also has just one home run on the season.
