Chicago Cubs vs Pittsburgh Pirates 6/20/2022 Picks Predictions Previews


The Chicago Cubs will meet with the Pittsburgh Pirates in MLB action in PNC Park, PA, on Monday, June 20, 2022, at 7:05 PM ET. Since the third week of the year, Chicago was below.500, but things got worse early this month.


The Cubs embarked on a 10-game losing run during which they were swept by the Yankees and Padres. They were able to break out of their funk on Friday by defeating the Braves and then added another unexpected win on Saturday.


In a 6-0 setback on Sunday, Chicago fell short of completing the sweep. The Cubs will play their next seven matches on the road. They trail St. Louis by 12 games in the National League Central and Atlanta by 12.5 games for the last NL Wild Card slot.


Caleb Kilian, a right-handed pitcher, will start for Chicago on Monday night. In his second career appearance against San Diego last Wednesday, he surrendered five runs on 5 hits and five walks in four innings. Kilian, who is filling in as a starter, surrendered eight runs in nine innings.


  • The Chicago Cubs are 16-12 in their road matches against the spread.
  • The totals went OVER in 3 of the Cubs’ last 5 matches.
  • The totals went OVER in 18 of the Cubs’ 37 last matches at home.

Chicago Cubs vs Pittsburgh Pirates Predictions 6/20/2022


Earlier this month, Pittsburgh was fighting its way back to .500, going as close as 24-28 overall. Since then, the Pirates are one of baseball’s coldest teams, losing 11 of their next 12 matches. They ultimately got another victory on Sunday, winning 4-3 over San Francisco to finish out the series.


This is the final game in a seven-game homestand that concludes on Thursday afternoon. In the NL Central, Pittsburgh sits 1.5 games ahead of Chicago, with the Cardinals and Brewers behind by 10.5 matches.


The Pirates are also 11 matches out of the last NL Wild Card place, thus none of these clubs should be considered contenders.


JT Brubaker, a right-handed pitcher, will take the mound for the Pirates. In his last appearance against St. Louis, he gave two earned runs on 7 hits and two walks across 5.1 innings. Brubaker pitched well in his previous five starts, with a 3.21 ERA in 28 innings. However, he is yet to win a game this season.


  • The Pittsburgh Pirates are 14-18 in their road matches against the spread.
  • The totals went OVER in 3 of the Pirates’ last 5 matches.
  • The totals went OVER in 12 of the Pirates’ 32 last matches at home.

Chicago Cubs vs Pittsburgh Pirates. The MLB pick for this game is the Pittsburgh Pirates. There is a significant difference between both starting pitchers, making this a rather simple decision in a game with pick’em odds. Brubaker was pitching well, with a 3.30 ERA in his previous five outings.


Last time out, he pitched up only two earned runs against a potent St. Louis lineup, demonstrating superb control. Against a Chicago squad that was shut out on Sunday, this will be a much simpler assignment.


Due to injuries, the Cubs are sending Kilian out for the third time in the rotation. So far, he was not excellent by any stretch of the imagination, making Pittsburgh a great pick on Monday. The Pittsburgh Pirates will win to a predicted score of 6-4.
