Chicago is 4-0 in their last 4 games against the NL Central and 2-5 in their last 7 Tuesday games. The under is 6-1 in Chicago’s last 7 games. St. Louis is 5-2 in their last 7 Tuesday games and 1-8 in their last 9 games following an off day. The over is 4-1 in St. Louis’ last 5 home games. The under is 6-2 in these two teams last 8 head to head meetings in St. Louis.

These two teams come into this series as the second and third best teams in the NL Central, but St. Louis is 12.5 games better than Chicago. The Cardinals trail the Brewers by three games in the NL Central race; making every game they play very important. St. Louis will turn to Adam Wainwright in this spot, who has allowed two runs or fewer in three of this last four starts. For the Cubs, Keegan Thompson has allowed one earned run or fewer in three of his last four starts. Both of these pitchers have been solid over their last four outings and I am taking the under here.
