The St. Louis Cardinals and the Chicago Cubs will meet on the field at Wrigley Field on Friday in a battle of division rivals.

Lance Lynn will be the starting pitcher for the Cardinals on this day. Right hander Lynn is 4-3 this season with a 2.93 ERA.

Lynn’s opponent in this one will be John Lackey. The Cubs right hander has a 5.18 ERA to go along with a 4-5 record this season.

Lynn is winless in his last four starts, though he pitched well enough to win two of them. The 30-year-old was dominant in a no-decision May 23 against the Los Angeles Dodgers, allowing one run and two hits over eight innings with a season-high 10 strikeouts, but he gave up four runs in five innings in a loss Sunday at Colorado. Lynn is 6-6 with a 4.11 ERA in 16 games (15 starts) against the Cubs.

Lackey has lost his last two starts, allowing five runs over five innings in each. The 38-year-old owns just one quality start in his last eight outings and has surrendered 13 home runs, including at least one in eight of his 10 starts. Lackey is 2-1 with a 2.48 ERA in five starts against his former team, including a win in his season debut April 6 in St. Louis.

Oddsmakers currently have the Cubs listed as 161-moneyline favorites versus the Cardinals, while the game’s total is sitting at 8½.

Once the spark plug for the Chicago Cubs’ curse-breaking World Series championship team, Dexter Fowler returns to Wrigley Field with the St. Louis Cardinals for a three-game series starting Friday. Fowler, the leadoff hitter and center fielder during the Cubs’ title run last season, will receive his World Series ring in a ceremony prior to Friday’s opener.

The Cubs’ lineup hasn’t been the same without Fowler at the top, especially recently. Chicago lost all six games on a West Coast road trip that wrapped up Wednesday with a 2-1 loss at San Diego, and the Cubs scored a total of nine runs on the trip. The Cardinals also have scuffled at the plate of late, but dominant pitching helped them split a four-game series against the Los Angeles Dodgers earlier this week – winning 2-1 on Wednesday and 2-0 on Thursday. St. Louis is 1 1/2 games behind Milwaukee in the National League Central, while the Cubs are three games back.

The Cubs were a 2-1 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Padres. That made winners of bettors who got San Diego at 200 on the moneyline, while the total score (3) was good news for UNDER bettors.

St. Louis won its last outing, a 2-0 result against the Dodgers on June 01. Bettors who backed the Cardinals at -102 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (2) sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.
