The Arizona Diamondbacks and the Chicago Cubs will both be gunning for a victory on Tuesday when they meet at Wrigley Field.

Patrick Corbin will be the starting pitcher for the Diamondbacks on this day. Left hander Corbin is 8-9 this season with a 4.44 ERA.

Meanwhile, it’ll be Jon Lester who starts for the Cubs. Left hander Lester is 8-6 with a 3.88 ERA so far this season.

Corbin has won his last two starts and allowed two or fewer runs in his last four. The 28-year-old issued a season-high four walks and scattered seven hits Wednesday against Atlanta, but he limited the damage to two runs over six innings. Corbin is 3-0 with a 3.15 ERA in four games (three starts) against the Cubs.

Lester has been excellent in three starts since the All-Star break, winning all three while posting a 2.05 ERA. The 33-year-old held the Chicago White Sox to two runs and four hits over seven innings Thursday, allowing both runs on solo homers for the second straight game. Lester is 2-0 with a 4.63 ERA in four starts against the Diamondbacks.

Oddsmakers currently have the Cubs listed as 165-moneyline favorites versus the Diamondbacks, while the game’s total is sitting at 8½.

A pair of playoff contenders go head-to-head when the Chicago Cubs play host to the Arizona Diamondbacks for a three-game series beginning Tuesday. The Cubs are 13-3 since the All-Star break and stand 2 1/2 games ahead of Milwaukee in the National League Central – the defending World Series champions’ largest lead of the season – while the Diamondbacks remain atop the NL wild card race.

Chicago is among the hottest teams in the majors, thanks in large part to a rejuvenated starting rotation that has posted a 2.34 ERA and 11 quality starts in 16 games since the break. Ace left-hander Jon Lester hopes to continue that trend when he aims for his fourth straight quality start opposite fellow lefty Patrick Corbin. Both teams did some dealing ahead of Monday’s non-waiver trade deadline, with each adding pieces to the bullpen and picking up veterans who add depth off the bench. The Cubs picked up left-hander Justin Wilson and catcher Alex Avila from Detroit, while the Diamondbacks acquired Adam Rosales from Oakland to shore up their injury-riddled infield and added right-hander David Hernandez from the Los Angeles Angels to bolster the bullpen.

Chicago won its last outing, a 4-2 result against the Brewers on July 30. Bettors who backed the Cubs at 102 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (6) sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.

Last time out for Arizona, they were a 3-2 loser as they battled the Cardinals on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Cardinals at -124 were rewarded, while the 5 combined runs moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.
