The Chicago Cubs are 45-65 this season and have alternated wins and losses in their last five games. Chicago is coming off of a series win against Washington, where they won two out of the three games played in the series. The Chicago pitching staff has a 4.30 ERA, a 1.33 WHIP, and a .250 opponent batting average this season. The Cubs offense has scored 454 runs with a .244 batting average and a .317 on base percentage. Patrick Wisdom is batting .220 with 20 home runs and 52 RBI’s for the Cubs this season. The projected starter for Chicago is Drew Smyly, who is 4-6 with a 3.97 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP over 65.2 innings pitched this season.

The Cincinnati Reds are 44-66 this season and have lost three games in a row. Cincinnati is coming off of a series loss against the Mets, where they lost all three games in the series.

Chicago is 3-7 in their last 10 games and 0-5 in their last 5 Thursday games. The under is 4-1 in Chicago’s last 5 game one’s of a series. Cincinnati is 2-5 in their last 7 Thursday games and 5-2 in their last 7 games against a left-handed starting pitcher. The under is 15-5-1 in Cincinnati’s last 21 game one’s of a series. The over is 5-2 in these two teams last 7 head to head meetings.

This will be a very cool environment for a baseball game as it is being played at The Field of Dreams. On the field, both teams have struggled mightily this season and have similar records. Chicago is starting Drew Smyly, who has allowed one or fewer earned runs in three of his last four starts. For the Reds, Nick Lodolo has allowed earned four runs over his last 16.2 innings pitched. I really like the under in this game as both pitchers have been solid lately and there will be a lot of off field distractions during the game.
