Preview

The Chicago Cubs and the San Diego Padres will play the 2nd game of the series at the Petco Park on Tuesday night. The Cubs beat the Padres in the first of the series 6-0.

Chicago Cubs

The Cubs get here with a 10-18 record and have lost 5 of their last 6 games. The team is averaging 3.8 runs per game with a .235 at bat while allowing 4.39 runs. Patrick Wisdom is leading the team with 5 home runs and 15 RBI while Contreras has the better batting average with .279.

Hendricks (2-3) continued his mastery of the Padres. He struck out seven and walked one to improve to 8-2 overall against San Diego and 5-1 at Petco Park.

Probable Pitcher:

Wade Miley (0-0, 0.00 ERA) will be on the mound for the Cubs in the 2nd game of the series. Miley looked solid in Thursday's rehab start at Triple-A, and the team has since decided that he's ready to return from the injured list. He's set for his first start of the 2022 campaign after missing time with left elbow inflammation. He had one start against the Padres last season and allowed 2 runs in 7 innings.

San Diego Padres

The Padres get here with a 19-11 record and have won 3 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 4.23 runs per game with a .223 at bat while allowing 3.93 runs. Manny Machado is leading the team with 7 home runs and 21 RBI and a batting average of .385.

Joe Musgrove pitched seven strong innings allowing 2 runs in 5 hits across 7 innings in his last start.

Probable Pitcher:

Mike Clevinger (0-0, 5.79 ERA) will be on the mound for the Padres in the 2nd game of the series. Clevinger (knee) didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 5-4 win over the Guardians in Game 1 of a doubleheader after striking out four over 4.2 innings in his return from the 10-day injured list. He gave up three earned runs on four hits and three walks.

BETTING TRENDS

Chi Cubs are 7-1 SU in their last 8 games against San Diego.

Chi Cubs are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games when playing on the road against San Diego.

San Diego are 14-6 SU in their last 20 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 6 of San Diego's last 9 games against Chi Cubs.

Prediction

The Cubs ended their losing streak after beating the Padres in the 1st of the series. They will send Wade Miley to the mound who hasn't pitched since last season. The Padres are struggling offensively and last time they faced Miley they scored only 2 runs across 7 innings so I'll take the under on this one.

PICK: Under 7.5 (-110)
