Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Chicago Cubs Prediction

The Chicago Cubs will look to end the Dodgers' mini win streak with Keegan Thompson on the mound. This season, Thompson is 7-3 with a 3.41 ERA for the Cubs. He's been one of the more consistent pitchers for Chicago. In the last 30 days, Thompson has had a 4.76 xFIP with 26.7% of strikeouts. However, he's walked 8.9% of batters while inducing just 29.2% of ground balls in that same time frame. Thompson will have a lot of work cut out for him, going up against a Dodgers lineup with a .223 ISO and wOBA of .342 against righties in the last 30 days. Only Max Muncy has a below-average ISO against righties in the last 30 days when looking at the projected lineup.

Meanwhile, Tyler Anderson will get the call for the Dodgers. He's revamped his career and has a 9-1 record with a 3.09 ERA on the season. Anderson, a left-handed pitcher, hasn't been all that great analytically, however. He's got a 5.32 xFIP in the last 30 days with 16.7% of strikeouts. He's also struggled more against righties, giving up a .334 wOBA and ISO of .185 to his last 102 righties faced. The Cubs have also hit lefties well. As a projected lineup, Chicago has a .227 ISO and wOBA of .349. And although the Cubs strike out 25.5% of the time against lefties with their projected lineup, Anderson isn't a big strikeout throwing threat anyway. I'm expecting runs in this game between two pitchers with ERAs below 3.50. Both of these pitchers have performed worse than their actual ERAs indicate.
