The Atlanta Braves and Chicago Cubs face off on Sunday in an MLB showdown at Wrigley Field. The Cubs have won the first two games of this series. 

The Braves sit with a 37-29 record overall but they have lost two games in a row. So far this series the Braves have scored only three runs total, and they are going to need to find a way to get more offense going here. Overall this season the Braves offense has been strong averaging 4.71 runs per game which is 9th best in baseball. Austin Riley has hit 18 home runs and driven in 40 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Cubs who sit with a 25-40 record overall and the first two wins in this series have been a bit shocking. The last series the Cubs were swept by the San Diego Padres and the offense has been an issue all season. The Cubs are averaging 4.23 runs per game which is 19th in baseball. Frank Schwindel has hit eight home runs and driven in 33 RBIs.

On the mound for the Braves is Ian Anderson who sits with a 5-3 record and an ERA of 4.81. In his last start against the Nationals. he went four innings giving up six hits and four earned runs. 

On the mound for the Cubs is Kyle Hendricks who sits with a 2-5 record and an ERA of 4.95. In his last start against the Padres, he went five innings giving up four hits and one run. 

The Cubs are 2-10 in their last 12 games. The Braves are 4-0 in Anderson’s last four starts. The over is 4-0-1 in Anderson’s last five starts on grass. The over is 2-0-3 in Anderson’s last five starts on Sunday. 

The Braves have lost the first two games of this series, but that is all going to change in this game. Hendricks is coming off a good start, but he sits with an ERA near five, and I expect the Braves are going to find success scoring here. The Braves have won the last four starts by Anderson, and this will be the fifth straight game. Back the Braves on the money line.
