Chicago Cubs vs. San Francisco Giants 6/24/24 MLB Best Picks, Analysis and Forecast

Chicago Cubs (36-39) vs. San Francisco Giants (36-40)


Chicago Cubs vs. San Francisco Giants 6/24/24 – As midseason nears, Oracle Park provides the backdrop for an intriguing showdown between the Chicago Cubs and San Francisco Giants on June 24, 2024. Both teams find themselves scrambling for momentum after just falling below.500; thus this contest promises both exciting contests and serves as a crucial turning point in their season trajectories, making it a premium matchup selection among MLB enthusiasts and bettors alike.


The Chicago Cubs (36-39) have shown signs of inconsistency as well as flashes of potential for serious contention this season, though their sub-.500 record hasn’t held them back from showing resilience over the last five games – pulling off a 3-2 mark during that span. Their batting average sits at just.230 but their on-base percentage (.311) and slugging percentage (.370) point toward potential innings production potential; yet their combined ERA (3.86 and 1.27 combined) needs to reduce scoring opportunities so as to secure more victories this season.


The Giants trail the Cubs slightly with a 36-40 record and have seen recent struggles as evidenced by their 2-3 record in their last five games and 1-4 against the spread in that same span. Although they have an improved batting lineup (.247 average and slugging percentage of.385) that may produce more power at bat; their main issue lies within their pitching department which has struggled this season, reflecting in an increased team ERA (4.45 and WHIP of 1.34 respectively), which indicates issues in controlling game control from within their ranks.

Although his win-loss record may indicate otherwise, Steele has shown commendable performance levels that could prove crucial in this matchup against Giants’ lineup. Steele excels at limiting hits and walks per inning while possessing exceptional strikeout ability that gives Cubs an edge during pressure situations – giving Cubs an advantage against them.


Conversely, Blake Snell of the Giants struggles with an outstanding 9.51 ERA and 1.94 WHIP over 1016 innings pitched during his career.
