The Cincinnati Reds will meet with the Chicago Cubs in MLB action in Wrigley Field, IL, on Friday, September 30, 2022, at 2:20 PM ET.

 

The Reds suffered another whitewash, dropping all three games this week in Pittsburgh while only hitting seven runs overall. They were completely rebuilt, although there were some encouraging signs.

 

In their previous 10 games, the team has a 3-7 record. The Reds are now 22nd in the league with 4.08 runs scored per game on average. With a 4.82 team ERA, the pitching staff ranks 28th in the major leagues.

 

The Reds will start the series with Graham Ashcraft. Last weekend, Ashcraft made his IL comeback but faltered, giving up four runs in four innings to the Brewers, dropping his record to 5-4.

 

The rookie right-4.18 hander’s ERA and 1.36 WHIP in 97 innings pitched this season are impressive numbers. Ashcraft struggled against the Cubs, giving up 11 runs in only 8.2 innings over his last two encounters.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 10 of Cincinnati’s last 12 matches. 
  • The Cincinnati Reds are 1-6 SU in their previous 7 matches. 
  • The total went UNDER in 5 of the Reds’ last 6 outings on the road.

Cincinnati Reds vs Chicago Cubs Predictions 9/30/2022

 

Chicago was playing fairly well, claiming three straight series against the Marlins, Pirates, and this week’s three-game home sweep of the Phillies thanks to strong pitching against them.

 

In the previous 10 games, the Cubs are 8-2. The Cubs are currently ranked 23rd in the league with 4.01 runs scored per game. The pitching staff currently ranks 21st in the Majors with a 4.13 team ERA.

 

In the first game of the series on Friday, Adrian Sampson will be pitching. Sampson continued to shine last time out, limiting the Pirates to just one run over the course of six innings, and picking up the victory to raise his record to 3-5.

 

The seasoned right-hander has a 3.23 ERA and 1.25 WHIP in 94.2 innings worked this season, which is fairly productive.

 

Sampson kept the Reds at bay, allowing just three runs in 10 innings over two appearances this year, and he has a stellar 2.84 ERA in 19 career innings versus the opposition.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 4 of the Chicago Cubs’ previous 5 matches. 
  • The Chi Cubs are 8-1 SU in their last 9 matches. 
  • The total went UNDER in 5 of Chicago’s previous 5 matches at home.

Cincinnati Reds vs Chicago Cubs. The MLB pick for this game is the Chicago Cubs. The Reds are having a terrible stretch as they dropped six of their previous seven games, including a dreadful Pirates sweep.

 

The Cubs are performing well right now, winning six of their past eight games, including this week’s three-game sweep over the Phillies.

 

Graham Ashcraft, the Reds’ starting pitcher, also failed to contain the Cubs, allowing 11 runs—10 of them earned—in 8.2 innings across two appearances.

 

Adrian Sampson, a starter for the Cubs, is still excelling, with a tiny 1.55 ERA in his five outings this month. In 10 innings this season, he limited the Reds to three runs. The Chicago Cubs will win to a predicted score of 4-2.
