Washington Nationals vs Chicago Cubs 8/9/2022 Picks Predictions Previews


The Washington Nationals will go against the Chicago Cubs in MLB action in Wrigley Field, IL, on Tuesday, August 9, 2022, at 8:05 PM ET.


The Nationals’ seven-game road trip continues. This past weekend, they suffered a humiliating sweep in Philadelphia as the pitching continued to be misused in most of the matches.


As of Monday, they dropped five straight away games, dropping to 3-7 in their previous ten road matches. The Nationals are currently in 27th place overall with an average of 3.80 runs per game.


The pitching staff’s 5.32 collective ERA places them last overall.


Paolo Espino will take the mound for the Nationals for the 31st time this year. Espino struggled in his most recent outing against the Phillies, allowing five runs, including two home runs, in four innings. He was given the loss, dropping to 0-4.


The veteran right-ERA hander’s dropped to 4.20 and his WHIP increased to 1.27 in 70.2 innings of work this season as a result of his struggles in two consecutive starts.


In 10.1 innings versus the Cubs in his career, Espino allowed five runs (four earned) to score.


  • The total went OVER in 4 of Washington’s previous 6 matches. 
  • The Washington Nationals are 0-6 SU in their last 6 matches. 
  • Washington is 0-5 SU in their last 5 matches on the road.

Washington Nationals vs Chicago Cubs Predictions 8/9/2022


On the weekend, Chicago was able to defeat the Marlins in a series, and they were excellent at home lately, winning five of their previous six matches as of Monday night.


In winning the series, they held the fish to only four runs. The Cubs are ranked 21st overall with a 4.10 run average. The pitching staff enters the game ranked 24th in the Major Leagues with a team ERA of 4.32.


On Tuesday, Marcus Stroman will make his 15th appearance of the year. In his previous start, Stroman had a strong outing, limiting the Cardinals to 3 runs on five hits across 6.2 innings of work to earn a no-decision in a game the Cubs lost.


In his career, Stroman struggled against the Nationals, with a 4.78 ERA in five appearances totaling 26.1 innings.


  • The total went UNDER in 11 of the Chi Cubs’ last 14 matches. 
  • The Chi Cubs are 3-6 SU in their previous 9 matches. 
  • The total went UNDER in 6 of the Chi Cubs’ last 7 matches at home.

Washington Nationals vs Chicago Cubs. The MLB pick for this game is the Chicago Cubs. The Cubs won six of their previous seven games at Wrigley Field and proved tough to beat there. They are currently playing well.


The Nationals dropped eight of their previous ten games as they continue to struggle. In his last two starts, Paolo Espino, the starter for the Nationals, only pitched 8.2 innings while giving up nine runs, including four home runs.


Marcus Stroman, the Cubs’ starter, is also in good form. Only five runs were given up in the veteran’s previous 27 innings of work.


The Nationals now dropped six straight away games, and I anticipate them to lose this one as well. The run line is a wise wager because four of the Cubs’ last five victories came by two runs or more.


The Chicago Cubs will win to a predicted score of 6-2.
