The San Diego Padres and Chicago Cubs face off on Monday in an MLB showdown at Wrigley Field. 

The Padres come into this game with a 37-24 record overall but they have lost two games in a row. Over the last two games, the offense only scored four runs total. The Padres offense is 15th in the MLB in terms of runs scored, but the real strength has been the pitching that is giving up only 3.61 runs per game. Padres coach Bob Melvin is in the COVID protocol and not with the team. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Cubs who sit with a 23-36 record overall and they have lost six games in a row. In the last game against the New York Yankees, the Cubs gave up 18 runs. The pitching staff gave up a ton of home runs to the Yankees over the weekend. Overall the Cubs are giving up 5.0 runs per game which is 25th best in the league.

On the mound for the Cubs is Justin Steele who sits with a 1-5 record and an ERA of 4.79. In his last start against the St. Louis Cardinals, Steele went seven innings giving up seven hits and two earned runs. 

The Cubs are 0-6 in their last six games on grass. The Cubs are 1-10 in their last 11 home games against a team with a road-winning percentage of greater than .600. The under is 4-0 in Darvish’s last four starts overall. The over is 5-1-1 in Steele’s last seven home starts as underdogs. 

The Cubs are at a big disadvantage on the mound here. Yu Darvish gave up zero runs in his last start, and he will slow down this Cubs offense here. Steele sits with an ERA near five, and the Padres bats will heat up here. Back the Padres on the money line.
