Javier Assad has been impressive this season, with a strong 2.81 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP over 73.2 innings. His consistency and ability to control games on the mound give the Cubs an advantage. On the other hand, while Jordan Hicks has also performed well, the Cubs' offense has a slight edge.

The Cubs have a better home record and have shown resilience in recent games. Their offense, led by Christopher Morel and Cody Bellinger, has the potential to capitalize on any mistakes made by the Giants' pitching staff.

Given the Cubs' pitching strength with Assad and their offensive potential, they are well-positioned to win this matchup.
