Things don’t get any easier for the Cubs who have to travel to the West Coast after having just dropped 3 in a row to division foe Milwaukee.
The rough weekend at Miller Park now has Chicago 4.5 games back from the Cardinals in the Central. Joe Maddon’s squad needs a strong 4-game series vs. San Diego as they are trying to hold on to a 1.5 game lead over Arizona for the 2nd wild card spot.
At full strength the Cubs might have value at even at -143 for Monday’s game but Chicago is battling some major injuries right now. Javy Baez could be out for the year with a thumb injury while Kris Bryant and Addison Russell are both questionable to give it a go in the opener vs. San Diego.
Kyle Hendricks is on the hill for Chicago. If this game were at Wrigley, the Cubs would be a no-brainer but Hendricks has a 5.20 ERA on the road compared to 1.77 at home. Hendricks allowed 2 ER in 7 IP vs. the Padres earlier this season.
San Diego Padres
One thing Chicago has going for them on Monday is that they do in fact play the Padres. Chicago has won 8 of the last 11 at Petco Park. That being said, San Diego is riding a two game win streak after getting wins Saturday and Sunday over Colorado.
Hunter Renfroe has gone 3-7 vs. Hendricks (.429) with a HR and two doubles but as a team San Diego is hitting just .246 vs. the Chicago starter. The Padres have also score more than 2 runs just once in their last 5 games.
It will be Cal Quantrill getting the start for San Diego. The right-hander has allowed 8 ER in each of his last two outings so Chicago, even if shorthanded, have to be licking their chops for this matchup.
Chicago is just 1-16 as a team vs. the San Diego starter though.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Cubs are 6-2 last 8 road games
- Cubs are 2-6 in Hendricks’ last 8 road starts
- Padres are 1-4 last 5 overall
- Cubs are 8-3 last 11 in San Diego
Free Chicago Cubs vs. San Diego Padres MLB Prediction:
Chicago had been playing much better on the road but they may have just ran into a solid Milwaukee team that got some great pitching over the weekend. Quantrill’s head has to be all messed up after allowing 16 runs in his last two starts but Hendricks also struggles on the road compared to when he’s at home.
