The Cincinnati Reds and the Chicago Cubs will both be gunning for a victory on Wednesday when they meet at Wrigley Field.

The Reds will trot Homer Bailey out to the mound in this one. Right hander Bailey has a 4-6 record and a 8.31 ERA this season.

Bailey’s opponent in this one will be John Lackey. The Cubs right hander has a 4.82 ERA to go along with a 10-9 record this season.

Bailey has been wildly inconsistent in 10 outings since returning from elbow surgery, mixing in four quality starts along with five starts in which he allowed at least six runs. The 31-year-old won at Milwaukee on Friday, holding the Brewers to two runs and five hits over five innings. Bailey is 8-3 with a 4.37 ERA in 16 starts against the Cubs, but he hasn’t faced them since 2014.

Lackey has won all five of his starts since the All-Star break, posting a 3.42 ERA. The 38-year-old has allowed three or fewer runs in six straight outings, and he gave up three runs over 5 1/3 innings to win at Arizona on Friday. Lackey is 6-5 with a 3.90 ERA in 15 starts against the Reds and has split two meetings this season.

Oddsmakers currently have the Cubs listed as 191-moneyline favorites versus the Reds, while the game’s total is sitting at 9.

The fickle nature of baseball has shown itself to the Chicago Cubs the past two games. The Cubs followed up one of their most impressive offensive performances of the season with a disappointing day at the plate, and they’ll try to trend back toward the former when they host the Cincinnati Reds in the third contest of a four-game series Wednesday.

After routing the Reds 15-5 in Monday’s series opener, the Cubs left 10 men on base in a 2-1 defeat Tuesday. Chicago remains 1 1/2 games ahead of St. Louis and Milwaukee in the National League Central. Cincinnati snapped a three-game skid Tuesday and also ended a streak of 10 straight losses in night games at Wrigley Field. The Cubs lead the season series 7-4, but Cincinnati has won three of the past five meetings.

Chicago lost its last outing, a 2-1 result against the Reds on August 15. Bettors who backed the Reds at 147 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (3) sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.
