San Diego Padres
The NL West is super tight, if you don’t count Los Angeles at the top. San Diego has not looked great coming out of the break and heading from Miami to Chicago is not going to be easy. They have to decide soon whether they are going to make any moves that might help their chances this season. They have a lot of power and might be able to parlay it into some arms or more lineup diversity.
Eric Lauer’s numbers this season would look a lot better if you could throw out one disastrous start at Coors Field. He is not the first to want to do that. In his last three he has not given up more than 1ER and that is ditto for 7 of his last 9. He does not dominate just works his way through. The Padres are 7-2 in those games.
The Cubs have been good out of the break. They have won five of six and have a little breathing space in the NL Central as a result. I love their lineup but they are missing Willson Contreras for little while with a foot injury. He might be the best hitting catcher in the league right now so the lineup takes a hit. They have good depth though.
Jon Lester continues to be an old fashioned winner. He is not what he once was but the Cubs have won six of his last eight starts. At home he has been especially tough. He drops his ERA in half and has a 6-2 record at Wrigley. Craig Kimbrel seems to finally be settling in, yielding just one hit over his last four appearances.

Lester and the Cubs brand will probably overprice the ML. Go with the run line here.
