San Francisco Giants
Johnny Cueto has been good most of the time but a few rough outings and few dominant ones have his 2017 numbers looking less than his standard over the years.
Six of Cueto’s nine starts have been quality outings (at least six innings, three or fewer runs allowed) but his ERA is just 4.50 and he’s just 4-3.
The Giants have been playing better lately, fighting out of the Padres shadow in last place in the NL West and climbing closer to .500. San Fran is up 6-0 late in the series opener as I write.
Ty Blanch has blanked the Cubs through seven innings on Monday night. Perhaps Cueto will carry that over, or maybe the Cubs will unload two nights worth of offense on him.
Either way, the Giants will have their work cut out for them. It appears it will be Kyle Hendricks, though ESPN lists Jon Lester and many books have hesitated to line this matchup.
Assuming it’s Hendricks, he will attempt to lower his ERA for a sixth straight start. Of course, that gets more difficult the lower it goes and it’s down to 3.35 now for the reigning champion in that metric.
Hendricks has allowed six earned over his last five outings.

Free San Francisco Giants vs. Chicago Cubs MLB Prediction: Chicago wins to even the series at home.
Cueto could have a tough time going up against this lineup the night after a night like it’s currently having. Hendricks, meanwhile, has been shutting down offenses a lot tougher than the one he’ll face on Tuesday evening.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Cubs (-150)
I have Chicago as a 3-2 favorite, as does Las Vegas. That’s still better than taking San Fran at a reduced payout.
