2015 NL Cy Young winner, Jake Arrieta, has been rolling this year as well and draws a favorable matchup against a weak Reds team.
The Cubs have to be the early favorite to win the pennant this year, leading the league with a .649 winning percentage. They have a deep, star filled lineup with the likes of Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo, Dexter Fowler, Jason Heyward and Ben Zobrist. However, it’s been recent call-up, catcher Willson Contreras, who has been leading the charge lately with a .348 average and 3 HR in his first full week of MLB action.
Jake Arrieta has continued on his Cy Young season from a year ago, leading the first place Cubs with 11 wins, a 1.74 ERA and 107 strikeouts. While the NL is filled with more great pitchers, Jake Arrieta is right there behind Clayton Kershaw, as arguably the second best in the league.
Dan Straily has put together a nice season for the lowly Cincinnati Reds, who sit in last in the same NL Central division that the Cubs are dominating. Straily leads the team with just 72 strikeouts and a 3.83 ERA, which are fine but not exactly dominant and is telling of the Reds team in their rebuilding stage.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
Adam Duvall, the relatively unknown prospect who was called up near the beginning of the season, is now tied with superstar Nolan Arenado for the National league lead with 21 homers. Jay Bruce has also been feeling the power stroke this year, supplementing Duvall’s power with 17 dingers of his own.
- Chicago is 23-14 on the road
- the Cubs are 4-6 in their last 10 games
- Cincy is 1-6 against the Cubs this season
- The Reds are 17-22 at home
Free Chicago Cubs vs Cincinnati Reds MLB Prediction:
Everything in this matchup favors the Cubs, and the moneyline reflects that as the Cubs are going off at -223. But, I expect the Cubs to out score their opponents by a decent margin despite Straily’s nice seasons thus far.
