Chicago Cubs vs Philadelphia Phillies Predictions 7/23/2022

 

In their final series before the All-Star break, Philadelphia swept the Marlins on the road to raise their record to 27-14 since letting go of Joe Girardi. The Phillies were 8.5 matches behind the Mets in the NL East standings heading into Friday night.

 

In this game, Zack Wheeler, who is pitching for the Phillies, is making his 18th start of the year. He enters the game with a record of 8-5, a 2.89 ERA, a 1.084 WHIP, 22 walks, and 108 strikeouts in 99.2 innings pitched.

 

When Wheeler made his most recent start on July 13 against the Blue Jays on the road, he was unsuccessful. In 4.2 innings pitched, he gave up six runs on seven hits, one walk, and four strikeouts as the Phillies lost 8-2.

 

Wheeler has a 2-1 record, a 2.89 ERA, a 1.02 WHIP, three walks, and 14 strikeouts in 18.2 innings across his previous three starts.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 9 of Philadelphia’s previous 12 matches. 
  • The total went OVER in 9 of the Phillies’ last 10 matches against the Chi Cubs. 
  • The Philadelphia Phillies are 13-7 SU in their last 20 matches at home.

Chicago Cubs vs Philadelphia Phillies. The MLB pick for this game is the Philadelphia Phillies. As the trade deadline approaches, it’s unclear what sort of club Chicago will field after the All-Star break.

 

As Stroman missed several games this season due to injury and sickness, the Cubs wanted to get more out of him than they did in the first year of his contract.

 

Wheeler pitched 55.2 innings this season and was outstanding at home, earning a 5-2 record, a 1.62 ERA, a 0.94 WHIP, 10 walks, and 61 strikeouts.

 

The Phillies have an advantage here due to their ace on the mound and their offensive output, so you have to give them the advantage.

 

Former Cubs Schwarber and Castellanos are leading the way at the plate at home in Philadelphia. The Philadelphia Phillies will win to a predicted score of 5-2.
