Cincinnati Reds vs Chicago Cubs 9/8/2022 Picks Predictions Previews


The Cincinnati Reds will go against the Chicago Cubs in MLB action in Wrigley Field, IL, on Thursday, September 8, 2022, at 2:20 PM ET.


Cincinnati was 23 games below.500 at the All-Star break, effectively out of the running for the playoffs during the first half of the season.


The Reds won 10 of their first 16 games back in the second half of the season, showing early-season competitiveness. However, Cincinnati only managed to string together consecutive victories twice in the past month, making that pleasant run a distant memory at this point.


Prior to losing the first game of the series on Tuesday in Chicago, the Reds won two of their last three games versus Colorado.


Luis Cessa, a right-handed pitcher, will make the Reds’ Thursday opening pitch. He went five innings against Colorado, giving up 2 runs on 4 hits, four strikeouts, and two walks. Cessa extended his season-long stint, bringing his ERA down to 5.18.


  • The Cincinnati Reds are 2-5 SU in their last 7 games with the Cubs. 
  • Cincinnati is 5-10 SU in their last 15 matches on the road. 
  • The Reds are 2-4 SU in their last 6 matches on the road against the Chicago Cubs.

Cincinnati Reds vs Chicago Cubs Predictions 9/8/2022


After the All-Star break, Chicago also had a strong start, capturing five straight games to begin the second half of the season. Beginning in early August, the Cubs had another great run, winning 11 of their next 15 games.


Since then, they suffered a severe losing streak, dropping 11 of their last 16 games. Prior to winning the first game of the series on Tuesday, Chicago was wiped out in a three-game series at St. Louis last weekend.


Adrian Sampson, a right-handed pitcher, will start this match for Chicago. Last Friday against St. Louis, he pitched five innings and gave up two runs on four hits.


Sampson’s record is only 1-5, but his ERA is a respectable 3.95. In four of his last five appearances, he gave up two earned runs or fewer, while not pitching all six innings in any of those games.


  • The Chicago Cubs are 2-8 SU in their last 10 matches. 
  • The Chi Cubs are 4-2 SU in their last 6 matches at home against Cincinnati. 
  • Chicago is 1-6 SU in their last 7 matches in the National League.

Cincinnati Reds vs Chicago Cubs. The MLB pick for this game is the Chicago Cubs. As the regular season comes to a close, neither team is in great shape, but Chicago has an advantage because of the pitching battle.


Sampson may not have a great record, but in four of his previous five outings, he only gave up two earned runs. He is taking against a Cincinnati lineup that, with Votto and Moustakas out for the remainder of the season, is almost devoid of any power.


The Cubs are a clear choice on Thursday afternoon since Chicago has the superior offense and pitcher. The Chicago Cubs will win to a predicted score of 5-4.
