Cubs are Trending UNDER as of Late

The Chicago Cubs have undoubtedly been the best team in baseball all year long, but they’ve hit a road block as of late. Joe Maddon’s crew will be attempting to right the ship when they travel to St. Louis for a date with the Cardinals on Monday.

Shark Bites
  • The Cubs are 5-1 SU in their last six games against the Cardinals.
  • The Cardinals are 7-1 SU in their last eight games after a loss.
  • The total has gone UNDER in five of the Cubs' last seven games.

The Cubs managed only three hits in a 1-0 loss to the San Francisco Giants on Sunday and have started their nine-game road trip by dropping two of three. The Cards have lost four of their last six homes series, including a three-game set against the Cubbies in late April.

John Lackey and Adam Wainwright will get the start for the Cubs and Cards, respectively. Lackey (4-2, 3.31 ERA), who is facing his old team, has allowed fewer than three earned runs in each of his last four outings but has notched just one win in that span. Wainwright (4-3, 5.92) has collected four-straight victories and owns a 12-7 lifetime record against the Cubs.
