The Chicago Cubs will meet with the Washington Nationals in MLB action in Nationals Park, Washington, D.C., on Saturday, July 31, 2021, at 7:05 PM (EDT). Even before selling away their three greatest players, the Cubs were underperforming offensively, batting just .227 and producing 4.20 runs per game, which ranked them 28th and 20th in the MLB, respectively. With Anthony Rizzo, Kris Bryant, and Javier Baez out, the infield took on an entirely different look. None of them were having very good seasons, but it’s reasonable to expect the Cubs minor league players will falter.

 

Kyle Hendricks, a right-handed pitcher, will pitch for the Cubs and hopes to maintain his stellar season, which saw him go 12-4 with a 3.85 ERA. Hendricks suffered in his last start, surrendering five runs on 9 hits in four and third innings of work, but the Cubs rallied to victory 6-5. Hendricks is a superior pitcher at home, but he’s also had a good year on the road.

 

  • The Chicago Cubs are 1-4 SU in their previous 5 matches.

  • The total went OVER in 7 of the Cubs’ last 10 matches on the road against Washington.

  • The Chicago Cubs are 1-5 SU in their last 6 matches on the road.

Chicago Cubs vs Washington Nationals Predictions 7/31/2021

 

This year, Washington has a powerful offense that is batting .248 on the year, good for third in the MLB and 17th in offensive efficiency. Those figures will certainly be impacted by the trade of shortstop Trea Turner to the Dodgers, who was batting .322 with 18 home runs and RBIs with 49, but they still have rookie outfielder Juan Soto in the lineup, who tops the team with 58 RBIs and is hitting .302.

 

The Nationals have yet to name a starting pitcher for this game, and the rotation’s depth was undoubtedly hurt by Scherzer’s departure. Washington now has a team ERA of 4.39, which places 17th in the league, and whoever receives the pitch will be battling one of the weakest offenses in baseball.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 7 of Washington’s last 9 matches.

  • The total went OVER in 7 of Washington’s last 10 home matches against the Chi Cubs.

  • Washington Nationals are 4-1 SU in their previous 5 matches at home.

Chicago Cubs vs Washington Nationals. The MLB pick for this game is the Chicago Cubs. Despite the uncertainty surrounding who will pitch for the Cubs, Washington should have little trouble running through the Cubs minor league level club. Even though Hendricks had some good road outings this year, he has a history of poor road outings. The Nationals are a significantly better club as a result of their trade deadline moves, and they can dominate a second consecutive match in the series. Chicago will win to a predicted score of 5-4.
