  • This Cubs team really started their season off looking pretty bad and I was actually wondering if they were going to be a fade team for me this year. They have been playing much better recently. We just seen them play the Arizona Diamondbacks in their last game, scoring five runs and grabbing themselves a win. The Cubs offense has been great also, they are averaging 5 runs per game but their pitching is also giving up 4 runs per game. The offense is ranked 4th in the league, while the pitching is ranked 23rd. Getting the start for the Cubs will be Shota Imanaga, who sits with a 2-0 record and an ERA of 0.00. In 15.1 innings pitched so far this season, he has given up only one unearned run in 15.1 innings and has honestly been the best arm we seen from this Cubs rotation so far. Can the Shota continue his dominance on the mound and lead the Cubs to a win here.

  • I know we have seen a little life come out of this Marlins team recently and I'm sure they want to bounce back after Their last game against the San Francisco Giants, but can this team be trusted right now? I mean seriously, they only scored a run against the Giants and that led to another loss. The Marlins are averaging 3 runs per game and their pitching is giving up 5.53 runs per game. The offense is ranked 23rd in the league and the defense is ranked 29th. Looks like Jesus Luzardo is getting the nod for the Marlins, and he sits with an 0-2 record and an ERA of 7.65. In his last start against the Braves, he went five innings giving up seven hits and five runs. I know that's the Braves and it's expected against that line-up but this Cubs lineup should not be underestimated, especially at Wrigley! Can we see a different side of this Miami team today or will they continue to struggle.

-💎 Chicago Cubs ML -165 ( 2u )

-💎 Miami Marlins Team Total Under 3.5

  • This was an absolute no-brainer for me on this game! The Cubs are going to have no problem running up the score on the Marlins in this game. The Cubs are averaging over 5 runs per game, and now they get to face off against Luzardo at Wrigley! We know that Luzardo really been struggling this year. Then to make things even better for us and the Cubs here, They send out Imanaga for this game and this guy has been lights out for the Cubs, and he’s going to be lights out again here. The Marlins aren’t going to score more than two runs, and it will be the Cubs that get the win today. Back the Cubs for a easy cash and hit that Marlins Team total under for some extra cash in this one!
