The St. Louis Cardinals and Chicago Cubs face off on Sunday in an MLB showdown at Wrigley Field. These two teams have played four games already, and each team has won two of the games. 

The Cardinals come into this game with a 31-23 record overall and in the last game on Saturday night, the offense scored seven runs and that was enough to secure the victory. The Cardinals are currently averaging 4.89 runs per game which is fourth-best in the MLB. The defense is giving up 3.93 runs per game which is the 9th best in the league. Paul Goldschmidt has been the top player hitting 12 home runs and driving in 47 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Cubs who sit with a 23-21 record overall and many thought this would be a down season, but this has been a big disappointment for them. The Cubs pitching has been an issue giving up 4.69 runs per game which is 24th in baseball. Patrick Wisdom has hit 12 home runs and driven in 31 RBIs.

On the mound for the Cardinals is Adam Wainwright who sits with a 5-4 record and an ERA of 2.75. In his last start against the San Diego Padres, he went seven innings giving up two hits and zero runs. 

On the mound for the Cubs is Justin Steele who sits with a 1-5 record and an ERA of 5.40. In his last start against the Milwaukee Brewers, he went five innings giving up three hits and three earned runs.

The Cubs are 1-4 in Steele’s last five home starts. The Cubs are 5-0 in their last five during game 5 of a series. The Cardinals are 12-2 in their last 14 road games against a left-handed starter. 

Just Steele has really struggled this season and he is going to be lit up again in this game. Wainwright gave up zero runs in his last start, and that is going to be the difference as the Cardinals get the job done. Back the Cardinals on the money line. I also lean the Cardinals -1.5
