The division rival Chicago Cubs and St. Louis Cardinals are set to renew hostilities on Monday when they meet at New Busch Stadium.

Jon Lester will be the starting pitcher for the Cubs on this day. Left hander Lester is 11-8 this season with a 4.56 ERA.

It’ll be Luke Weaver toeing the rubber for the Cardinals in this contest. Right hander Weaver is 7-1 with a 2.05 ERA so far this season.

Lester had won three straight starts before he was tagged for seven runs over 4 1/3 innings of a loss at Tampa Bay on Wednesday. The 33-year-old has been inconsistent since the All-Star break with seven quality starts in 11 outings but a couple of clunkers mixed in. Lester is 4-4 with a 2.36 ERA in 13 career starts against the Cardinals, including a 1-1 mark and 3.28 ERA in four meetings this season.

Weaver has been lights-out of late, winning his last seven starts with a scoreless relief appearance sprinkled in. The 24-year-old is 7-0 with a 1.61 ERA since his only loss of the season and has 58 strikeouts to go along with eight walks in 44 2/3 innings over that span. Weaver faced the Cubs in his big-league debut last season and gave up two runs over four innings in a no-decision.

Oddsmakers opened the Cardinals as -123-moneyline favorites versus the Cubs, while the game’s total opened at 8.5.

The Chicago Cubs effectively knocked one rival out of the National League Central race over the weekend, and they can officially eliminate another as early as Monday. The Cubs’ magic number to clinch the division crown is two heading into a four-game road series against the St. Louis Cardinals.

The Cubs lead second-place Milwaukee by 5 1/2 games and can go six up with six to play with a win Monday, as the Brewers are idle. The Cardinals are six back in the division and fighting to remain in the NL wild-card race, trailing Colorado by 2 1/2 games for the final playoff spot. St. Louis lost the final two contests of its three-game series at Pittsburgh over the weekend, while the Cubs took three of four from Milwaukee and have won 10 of their last 12. Chicago leads the season series 11-4.

Last time out for St. Louis, they were a 4-1 loser as they battled the Pirates on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Pirates at 106 were rewarded, while the 5 combined runs moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.

The Cubs were a 5-0 winner in their most recent outing on the road against the Brewers. That made winners of bettors who got Chicago at -129 on the moneyline, while the total score (5) was good news for UNDER bettors.
