Chicago Cubs vs Cincinnati Reds Predictions 5/23/2022


In this game, Vladimir Gutierrez will earn his eighth appearance of the season. Gutierrez had difficulties again in his most recent start, giving up four runs in only 4.2 innings against the Brewers, but escaped with a no-decision in a game the Reds won.


This year, the young right-hander struggled, giving up four home runs in his previous two appearances and posting an 8.65 ERA and 1.96 WHIP while going 0-5 in 26 innings. Last year, Gutierrez pitched 22.2 innings against the Cubs and had a 2.38 ERA with a 1-2 record.


After a dismal 3-22 start, the Reds remained competitive. They swept Cleveland last week after winning a series against the Brewers earlier this month. Last weekend, the bats were silent in a series defeat to the Blue Jays, but they came back to win 3-2 on Sunday.


Brandon Drury has a fantastic month at the plate, with 15 RBIs and a.911 OPS. The 29-year-old third baseman is having a fantastic season, with 22 RBIs and an.842 OPS. Drury didn’t play in Toronto last weekend, but they should be in this game.

  • The total went UNDER in 5 of Cincinnati’s last 5 matches against the Chi Cubs.
  • The total went OVER in 5 of Cincinnati’s last 5 matches at home.
