New York Mets -127

Walker has been a good pitcher on the year in limited action. However, the big issue for the Cardinals is the fact that the Cardinals are on the road and Matz has not been that good of a pitcher and is not really able to keep the opponents in check for run scoring and that will make the difference in this game as the Mets are able to win the game easily. Final Score Prediction, New York Mets win 7-3.
