If familiarity breeds contempt, there should be animosity aplenty on Monday when the Cincinnati Reds and the Chicago Cubs meet at Wrigley Field.

The Reds will give the ball to starter Asher Wojciechowski in this one. Right hander Wojciechowski is 3-1 this season with a 4.23 ERA.

Starting this game for the Cubs will be Jose Quintana. The left hander has a 4.42 ERA to go along with a 6-10 record this season.

Wojciechowski has won his first two starts since returning to the rotation. The 28-year-old took a shutout into the sixth inning before giving up a pair of homers in Wednesday’s win over San Diego – a triumph in which he allowed three runs and seven hits over 5 2/3 frames. Wojciechowski, who will make his Wrigley Field debut, has struggled to a 6.23 ERA on the road.

Quintana is winless in his last three starts, although he was a victim of poor run support in two of them. The 28-year-old allowed four runs – three earned – over six innings in a loss at San Francisco on Tuesday, posting his fourth quality start in five outings since being acquired from the crosstown White Sox. Quintana is 1-0 at home since joining the Cubs but struggled in his last start at Wrigley, allowing six runs and six hits – three homers – over five innings in a loss to Arizona.

Oddsmakers currently have the Cubs listed as 197-moneyline favorites versus the Reds, while the game’s total is sitting at 9½.

Two last-place teams visit Wrigley Field this week, giving the first-place Chicago Cubs a chance to pad their lead in the National League Central. The Cubs look to increase their advantage in the tight division race when they begin a seven-game homestand on Monday with the opener of a four-game series against the Cincinnati Reds.

The Cubs lead the NL Central by one game over St. Louis and are two ahead of Milwaukee but are in a great position to pull away with their next 13 contests against last-place teams, including seven versus Cincinnati. The Reds will try to play spoiler against a Cubs team that has dominated them of late, especially in the Windy City. Chicago leads the season series 6-3, including a three-game sweep at home in May, and has won 24 of the last 31 overall meetings. The Reds have played better of late, however, and had won three straight and four of five before dropping the final two contests of their three-game series at Milwaukee over the weekend.

Chicago won its last outing, a 7-2 result against the Diamondbacks on August 13. Bettors who backed the Cubs at -105 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (9) sent PUSH bettors to the payout window.

In their last action, Cincinnati was a 7-4 loser on the road against the Brewers. Bettors on Milwaukee at -116 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (11) sent OVER bettors home happy as well.
