Washington is 16-40 in their last 56 games and 0-4 in their last 4 Wednesday games. The over is 5-0-2 in Washington’s last 7 games. Chicago is 6-2 in their last 8 home games and 1-5 in their last 6 game three’s of a series. The under is 7-2-1 in Chicago’s last 10 home games. The over is 8-3-2 in these two teams last 13 head to head meetings.

The first two games of this series has had a good amount of runs scored and I expect more of the same here. Josiah Gray has allowed 12 runs in his last 15 innings of work for Washington. For Chicago, Justin Steele has allowed four earned runs in his last 14.2 innings pitched. I am taking the Cubs to win this game by a couple of runs against a weak Washington pitching staff.
