Before making any Cardinals vs. Phillies picks, you NEED to check out the MLB predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.
The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every MLB game 10,000 times and it is off to a strong start to the 2022 season. It's on a 59-51 run on top-rated MLB money-line picks through 12 weeks. This is the same model that pegged the 2021 Atlanta Braves at 10-1 as one of three best bets to win it all last season. Anybody who has followed it has seen profitable returns.
The model knows St. Louis first baseman Paul Goldschmidt is a big-time slugger with exceptional power and strength. Goldschmidt has a good batter's eye and a solid awareness of the strike zone. The six-time All-Star leads the league in batting average (.346) while ranking second in RBIs (65) and first in OPS (1.061). On July 1, he went 2-for-4 with a double.
The model also knows Philadelphia left fielder Kyle Schwaber owns outstanding power and bat speed. Schwaber is a constant home-run threat with run-producing qualities. The 2021 All-Star is tied for second in the league in home runs (23) and tied for 15th in RBIs (51). On July 1, he went 2-for-4 with two singles and one RBI.
Now, the model has set its sights on Cardinals vs. Phillies. We can tell you the model is leaning over the total, and it also says one side of the money line has ALL the value. You ABSOLUTELY need to see it before locking in any MLB picks.
