Preview

The Chicago Cubs and the San Diego Padres will play the 2nd game of the series at the Wrigley Field on Tuesday night. The Padres got the win 4-1 on Monday to take the lead on the series and are 2-2 against the Cubs so far this season.

Chicago Cubs

The Cubs get here with a 25-37 record and have lost their last 7 games. The team is averaging 4.3 runs per game with a .236 at bat while allowing 5 runs. Patrick Wisdom is leading the team with 12 home runs and 31 RBI while Contreras has the better batting average with .275.

Keegan Thompson leads the pitching staff with a 3.67 ERA, 39 strikeouts and 6 wins recorded for the Cubs.

Probable Pitcher:

Kyle Hendricks (2-5, 5.22 ERA) will be on the mound for the Cubs in the 2nd game of the series. Hendricks has been resting due to shoulder fatigue but is lined up to make his next start Tuesday against the Padres. He tossed 8.2 scoreless innings and struck out 8 earlier this season against the Padres. He earned the win as the Cubs beat them 6-0.

San Diego Padres

The Padres get here with a 38-24 record and have won 5 of their last 7 games. The team is averaging 4.4 runs per game with a .233 at bat while allowing 3.61 runs. Manny Machado is leading the team with 10 home runs and 38 RBI and a batting average of .327.

Joe Musgrove leads the pitching staff with a 1.50 ERA, 72 strikeouts and 7 wins recorded for the Padres.

Probable Pitcher:

Sean Manaea (3-3, 3.52 ERA) will be on the mound for the Padres in the 2nd game of the series. On Wednesday, Manaea pitched seven innings against the Mets, giving up two runs (one earned) on three hits and three walks while striking out three batters.

BETTING TRENDS

San Diego are 3-8 SU in their last 11 games against Chi Cubs.

San Diego are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games on the road.

Chi Cubs are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games at home.

The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Chi Cubs' last 7 games when playing at home against San Diego.

Prediction

The Cubs continue to struggle as they have now lost 7 games in row are 11-21 at home this season. They're hoping another great performance from Hendricks as he shutout the Padres the last time he faced them. The Padres will send Manaea to the mound who has been really good lately allowing only 2 runs in his last 13 innings pitched. I expect another low scoring game and the under seems like a good choice.

PICK: Under 9.5 (-110)
