BETTING TRENDS

San Diego are 4-8 SU in their last 12 games against Chi Cubs.

San Diego are 5-0 SU in their last 5 games on the road.

Chi Cubs are 0-8 SU in their last 8 games.

Chi Cubs are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games at home..

Prediction

The Cubs continue to struggle as they have now lost 8 games in row are 11-22 at home this season. The Padres will look to stay hot offensively and try to sweep the Cubs. Both teams are going to call back up pitchers from the minor leagues so there are many chances that we'll see another high scoring game. Take the over.

PICK: Over 11.5 (-110)
