Chicago Cubs vs Arizona Diamondbacks Predictions 5/14/2022

 

Arizona lost the third and final game of their three-game home series with the Marlins but came into Friday having won seven of their previous nine games.

 

The Diamondbacks were in fourth place in the NL West on Friday, four matches behind the Dodgers for the division lead. Arizona received two hits from Alek Thomas (2 runs, RBI) against Miami, but the rest of the squad only managed two.

Gallen won 4-0 in the Arizona victory, he pitched seven shutout innings, surrendering five hits with no walks and seven strikeouts.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 5 of Arizona’s last 7 matches.

  • The total went UNDER in 5 of Arizona’s last 7 matches against the Chi Cubs.

Chicago Cubs vs Arizona Diamondbacks. The MLB pick for this game is the Arizona Diamondback. Arizona has so far outperformed expectations, and one has to question if its strong start is an exception.

 

After all, this is a squad that went 14-12 in the opening month of the season in 2021 before going winless until July 19. They ranged from 8 to 48 in May and June. Gallen threw effectively so far, and he was successful in keeping opposition batters at bay.

 

If Kyle Hendricks was given regular rest in this game, Chicago would be in a much better situation. Steele struggled to obtain outs and pitch clean innings. With so many missing parts in the Cubs’ lineup and a weak starter, you have to give the Diamondbacks the edge at home. The Arizona Diamondbacks will win to a predicted score of 7-3.
