Best Bet: Back with some Friday MLB action where we will focus on the first game of the slate in Chicago where the Cubs will face off with the Pittsburgh Pirates in the first of this 3-game series. The Cubs look to be red hot right now and are making a push to get back to the top of the NL Central as they are coming off a series sweep to the reigning champs, the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Cubs squeaked out 3 wins as underdogs on the road in that series, but now return home where they are the favorites in today’s matchup where Zach Davies (1-2 8.22 ERA) will take the mound for the Cubs, and Trevor Cahill (1-3 7.40 ERA) will take the mound for the pirates. Davies only has one win penciled in this season, but it came earlier this season at home against the Pirates where he pitched 5 2/3 innings, allowing 4 hits, 2 runs, and striking out 5 batters. Kris Bryant has been a problem for the Pittsburgh pitching staff in his career, but also this season. This season, he is batting 3.16, with 3 doubles, 4 runs batted in, and 2 home runs. The Pirates this season are 7-10 on the road, while the Cubs are 11-6 at home this season (despite their 15-16 record), and are 12-1 at home against Pittsburgh in their last 13 games. The wind is blowing in in Wrigley today, but the Cubs offense hasn’t been all that dependable on the deep ball this year. Back the Cubs to come out with yet another home victory against Pittsburgh today.
According to scorecast with over 10,000 score simulations run the Cubs are winning by an average of 1.1 runs and the Best Bet is Cubs Money line at -140 at Playsugarhouse.
