Preview

The Chicago Cubs and the San Diego Padres will meet again to play a 3-game series at the Wrigley Field. The Padres tied 2-2 in their last series against the Rockies while the Cubs have lost their last 2 series.

Chicago Cubs

The Cubs get here with a 25-36 record and have lost their last 6 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:

Justin Steele (1-5, 4.79 ERA) will be on the mound for the Cubs in the 1st game of the series. Steele did not factor into the decision in the Cardinals' 5-3 loss to the Cardinals on Sunday, pitching seven innings and giving two runs (one earned) on seven hits and three walks with one strikeout.

San Diego Padres

The Padres get here with a 37-24 record and have won 4 of their last 6 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 37 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:

Yu Darvish (5-3, 3.61 ERA) will be on the mound for the Padres in the 1st game of the series. Darvish gave up two hits while striking out six over seven scoreless innings to earn the win over the Mets on Tuesday. He is 0-2 with an ERA of 3.18 and 17 strikeouts in 2 appearances versus the Cubs in his career.

BETTING TRENDS

San Diego are 7-3 SU in their last 10 games.

San Diego are 2-8 SU in their last 10 games against Chi Cubs.

Chi Cubs are 0-6 SU in their last 6 games.

The total has gone OVER in 8 of Chi Cubs' last 12 games at home.

Prediction

The Cubs continue to struggle as they have lost 6 games in row are 11-20 at home this season but they'll face Yu Darvish who has lost the 2 times he has pitched against them. The Padres are also 2-8 in their last 10 games against the Cubs but with Steele pitching for the Cubs I can't trust them so my play will be the over.

PICK: Over 8.5 (-110)
