The Chicago Cubs and Arizona Diamondbacks meet Sunday in MLB action at Chase Field.

The Chicago Cubs look to stay hot after winning eight of their last 11 games. The Cubs have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 12 games. The Chicago Cubs have won seven straight games when scoring four or more runs. Javier Baez leads the Cubs with 35 hits and 22 RBI while Jason Heyward and Kris Bryant have combined for 44 hits and 25 RBI. Jose Quintana gets the ball, and he is 3-1 with a 3.21 ERA and 36 strikeouts this season. Quintana is 0-2 with a 9.98 ERA and 18 strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.

The Arizona Diamondbacks look for a victory after winning 10 of their last 13 games. The Diamondbacks have scored 14 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in nine of their last 14 games. The Arizona Diamondbacks have won 10 straight games when scoring more than one run. David Peralta leads the Diamondbacks with 38 hits and 19 RBI while Adam Jones and Christian Walker have combined for 61 hits and 33 RBI. Luke Weaver gets the ball, and he is 2-1 with a 3.33 ERA and 31 strikeouts this season. Weaver is 1-3 with a 9.00 ERA and 18 strikeouts in his career against the Cubs.

The Cubs are 11-5 in their last 16 Sunday games, 4-0 in Quintana's last 4 starts vs. National League West and 2-6 in Quintana's last 8 road starts. The Diamondbacks are 2-6 in their last 8 during game 3 of a series, 1-8 in their last 9 Sunday games and 5-1 in their last 6 vs. National League Central. The over is 3-1-1 in the last 5 meetings in Arizona. The under is 3-0-1 in Weaver's last 4 starts overall. The over is 13-5 in Cubs last 18 road games.

We cashed on the over the last two meetings between these teams, but now we should be looking at the under. Quintana has allowed just 14 hits and two runs in his last 21 innings and has 36 strikeouts in 28 innings. Weaver has allowed 10 hits and one run in his last 11.1 innings and has 31 strikeouts in 27 innings. There's been a lot of low scoring games when these guys have pitched this season. I'll take the under.

Under 9.5
