The Chicago Cubs will go against the Cincinnati Reds in MLB action in Great American Ball Park, OH, on Thursday, May 26, 2022, at 12:35 PM ET. Chicago had a terrible start to the year, finishing 9-18 during the first 27 games.

 

Since then, the Cubs went through various consecutive wins and a bizarre losing run. In the middle of May, they lost four straight matches, three of which were against lowly Arizona.

 

Aside from that, Chicago won four straight games against the Diamondbacks and Pirates and extended its current winning run to three games with an 11-4 victory on Tuesday.

 

The Cubs were in third place in the National League Central on Wednesday, 8.5 games behind division-leading Milwaukee.

 

They have a .236 team batting average, which ranks them 15th in the MLB. With 36 hits and a .275 average, center fielder Ian Happ leads the way, while first baseman Frank Schwindel has 34. Patrick Wisdom, a third baseman, leads the squad with 10 home runs and 23 RBIs.

 

Justin Steele, a left-handed pitcher, is set to start for Chicago. He allowed only one hit and two walks in five scoreless innings against Arizona the previous time out. Steele pitched two innings against the Diamondbacks, striking out 19 hitters and conceding one run. In 33 innings this season, he has a 3.82 ERA.

 

  • The total went OVER in 5 of the Chi Cubs’ previous 6 matches.
  • The Chi Cubs are 6-2 SU in their last 8 matches against Cincinnati.
  • The Cubs are 4-1 SU in their last 5 matches on the road.

Chicago Cubs vs Cincinnati Reds Predictions 5/26/2022

 

Cincinnati had a terrible start, losing 22 of its first 25 games. The Reds replied with an eight-game winning streak, sweeping eight of their following 12 games. They are struggling for the previous week, with Chicago delivering them their fourth setback in a five-game losing streak.

 

Toronto defeated the Reds in 2 of 3 matches, allowing only 5 runs in total. Cincinnati is last in the NL Central, five matches behind Pittsburgh for 4th place with a batting average of.217; the Reds are ranked 28th in the MLB at the plate.

 

Tyler Naquin, the right fielder, tops the struggling rotation with 34 hits and 22 RBIs. Tommy Pham leads the squad with 31 hits, while Brandon Drury leads the team with seven home runs.

 

The Reds are missing second baseman Jonathan India, who is out with a hamstring injury. Hunter Greene, a right-handed pitcher, is expected to start for the Reds on Thursday afternoon. He did not contribute to the decision his last time out, pitching six innings against Toronto and surrendering one run on four hits and two walks.

 

Greene tossed 7.1 no-hit frames in his prior outing, indicating that he improved in his last two starts.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 5 of Cincinnati’s previous 7 matches.
  • The Cincinnati Reds are 2-4 SU in their previous 6 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 6 of Cincinnati’s last 8 matches against the Chi Cubs

Chicago Cubs vs Cincinnati Reds. The MLB pick for this game is the Cincinnati Reds. The Reds’ offense was not an issue in their first two losses in this series, scoring a total of eight runs. They couldn’t overcome poor pitching, but that should be less of a concern on Thursday.

 

Greene is returning from two strong starts in a row, including a 7.1-inning shutout and six innings of one-run ball. He has the potential to be one of baseball’s top pitchers, thus his recent success will frighten opposition lineups. Meanwhile, Steele is overvalued following two strong performances against the Diamondbacks.

 

On Thursday, I expect him to decline, making the Reds a good value bet. The Cincinnati Reds will win to a predicted score of 4-3.
