Top MLB Betting Odds & Picks for Padres vs. Cubs

San Diego Padres vs. Chicago Cubs RL

San Diego’s Joe Musgrove is one of the leaders for the National League Cy Young Award, as he, Sandy Alcantara, and Corbin Burnes have separated themselves from the pack for now. That recognition is more than deserving, as Musgrove is 7-0 with a 1.50 ERA (second-best in the league) this year. He is one of 11 pitchers with at least seven wins, and one of three with that many wins and no losses.

Musgrove’s fantastic start to the season has been historic for other reasons. All 11 of his starts have been quality starts, and just broke Dennis Rasmussen’s franchise records for most consecutive quality starts to begin a season. Two starts ago, he also flirted with the second no-hitter of his career, not allowing his first hit until there were two outs in the seventh inning. He is also the first Padres pitcher since James Shields in 2015 to start a season 7-0.

Musgrove has looked the strongest he has ever been, as he has thrown a career-high 114 pitches in one of his starts this season. He now faces a Cubs team that has been outscored 84-26 during a nine-game losing streak. Chicago has scored more than four runs just twice in that span, while pitching to a league-worst 9.70 ERA over the last seven days. That is not a recipe to end a long losing streak against one of the sport’s best pitchers.
