Harvey was solid in his last outing as Cincinnati went on to beat the Milwaukee Brewers 8-2. He went 5.2 scoreless-innings giving up just two hits while he struck out six and walked none.
In 80.2 innings of work this season Harvey owns a moderate 1.25 WHIP and a .311 OBP. The end-result is a high 4.91 ERA to go along with a solid 60:21 K:B ratio.
Cincinnati continues to play winning baseball as they’ve won four of their last six contests in the past week. During that span their lineup is slashing .268/.355/.416 to go along with 16 extra-base hits and 40 RBI.
Chatwood was roughed up in his last outing as the Minnesota Twins took down Chicago 14-9. He went five innings giving up seven hits, seven earned runs, and one home run while he struck out six and walked three.
In 73.1 innings of work this season Chatwood owns a high 1.75 WHIP and .388 OBP as he has had his fair share of troubles limiting walks. The end-result is a high 4.54 ERA to go along with a dreadful 70:66 K:BB ratio.
Chicago has been on fire in the past week as they were able to win all five of their contests. During that span their lineup is slashing a ridiculous .370/.454/.618 to go along with 24 extra-base hits and 44 RBI.

4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Cubs First 5 Innings & Cubs Over Team Total
Harvey has won three straight and has only given up three earned runs total in that span. Chatwood is coming off of his worst outing of the season. Something tells me this is going to be a dud game for Harvey. It’s hard to trust Chatwood, but I’ll predict Chicago goes over their team total threshold and just outscore Cincinnati.
