The St. Louis Cardinals travel to Chicago to take on the Cubs in the final matchup of a three-game series between the two. Chicago has won each of the last two games, and the Cubs are -136 favorites to complete the sweep, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

As it's always smart to hear what those in the industry have to say before placing a bet, here are some predictions for Sunday night's game.

Cardinals vs Cubs Predictions

Sports Chat Place

The staff at Sports Chat Place is picking the Cubs to win here. Sports Chat Place argues that the Cubs are better than the Cardinals, and Chicago should be able to pull off the sweep.

Winners and Whiners

The crew at Winners and Whiners is also rolling with the Cubs to win. Winners and Whiners argues that the Cubs' offense has been effective in home games as of late, which could give Chicago the edge here.

Picks and Parlays

Finally, the team at Picks and Parlays is making it a clean sweep for the Cubs, picking them to win by a final score of 4-2. Picks and Parlays cites the Cardinals' poor record at Wrigley recently (5-16 in their last 21 games) as the reason they like the Cubs.

That's three out of three experts picking the Cubs to defeat the Cardinals tonight.
