Phillies vs. Cardinals Prediction

I’m on the over here. I just can’t trust either starter as Turnbull is still the guy that I recall posting a 3-17 record a few years ago with the Tigers, and Mikolas is normally a pitcher to expect an ERA around the high-fours to low-fives. I think this one ends up being slightly higher scoring, so give me the over here.
