EVALUATION: Win (1000)


I'm playing on CHICAGO. While the Cubs had their Sunday game postponed, the Marlins lost a tough one in 14 innings to the Phillies. In addition to burning up the bullpen - the Marlins used seven relievers - those type of losses can be demoralizing/deflating. Thats tough when a team is already giving up a lot in the talent department. Its true that Richards has pitched well thus far. However, like Darvish, he's still 0-3. Darvish took a big step last time out, as he didn't walk any batters, something that had been an issue in his first two starts.  The Cubs are 42-22 (+10) as road favorites in the -125 to 175 range, the past couple of seasons. The last time these teams met (May of last year) the Cubs won all three games, outscoring the Marlins by a combined 31-9 margin. The Cubs know they need to improve on the road and this is a perfect venue to do so at. Expect them to get healthy at Miami's expense this evening.
