The Cubs will be feeling good about themselves after going 6-1 in their last 7 games and that run has allowed them to put a little daylight between them and the Brewers atop the NL Central. The Cubs will, however, be wary of their division opponent here as the Reds have put together an 8-4 run since the 28th of July.
Kyle Hendricks (8-8, 3.06 ERA) will be coming into this game off a quality start against Oakland, where he went 6 1/3 innings giving up only 2 runs on Monday. He also has had the Reds number this year sporting a 2.70 ERA in 3 starts over 20 innings and striking out 21. Also important to note with the Cubs is that they are a completely different team away from Wrigley. They hold an outstanding home record of 41-19, but a pretty brutal road record of 22-33. The Cubs will look to buck that trend here today and are likely in good hands with Hendricks on the mound.
Despite having a record 5 games under .500, the Reds are by no means dead in the hunt for October baseball. They currently only sit 4.5 games back of the Brewers for the second spot in the NL Wild Card race. The Reds have also been on a roll lately and will look to keep that momentum going when they send their All-Star righty Sonny Gray (6-6, 3.25 ERA) to the mound.
In Gray’s last start he went 7 shutout innings against an excellent Braves batting unit. Gray overall has been excellent as of late and has some nice individual matchups against some of Chicago’s best hitters. Anthony Rizzo, Kyle Schwarber and David Bote are all hit-less in their career against Gray (Rizzo 7, Schwarber 6, Bote 4 plate appearances). Gray will be looking to keep those trends going as he attempts to push the Reds closer to one of those crucial Wild Card spots.

Free Chicago Cubs vs. Cincinnati Reds MLB Prediction:
With the way both these guys have been slinging it lately I do not trust either of these teams to be putting up a ton of runs. Look for Hendricks and Gray to be in a pitching duel for most of this game and pitch easily into the 6th and 7th inning.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER the Number
Betting the under isn’t always the most fun, but looks to be the way to go here. With Gray’s individual matchups and the form Hendricks is in it is hard to see this total going over 6 or 7.
