With only seven baseball games to choose from this Monday, have to work extra hard to find value on the card to arrive at three choices for those betting baseball and I think we have.
Coming off a money-making 5-4 weekend on baseball totals, I will look to improve upon that record for MLB picks and share my thoughts with you today.
Coming off a disappointing 2-4 homestand against two likely playoff teams, the Cubs head west and will play San Francisco on ESPN tonight. The Chicago bullpen and Joe Maddon in particular had a rough Sunday in blowing winnable contest, yet there hope this evening against the laboring Giants and their starter Matt Moore. This has been a nightmarish year for Moore at 3-11 with a 5.80 ERA. On the surface, it does not figure to get any better, with the Cubs 18-7, scoring 6.4 runs a game versus left-handed starters. Though Jake Arrieta has been lowering his ERA in recent starts, the same is not true of the Chicago bullpen, who really had a rough week. With the Cubs decisive favorites against the MLB odds, I uncovered Arrieta is 18-5 OVER as a road favorite of -125 or more since last season and I will back the OVER 8.
