STAR RATING: 9.0
EXPERT: Dan Kaiser
EVALUATION: Win (900) - Final Total 9
The Chicago Cubs had a two-game winning streak snapped in a 6-5 loss to the LA Angels on Saturday. They were snowed out on Sunday. As a team, they are hitting .272 and their opponents are hitting .277. The Cubs will send Yu Darvish to the mound to start the series. So far this season, he is 0-2 with a 7.50 ERA with ten strikeouts and eleven walks.
The Miami Marlins were able to snap a five-game losing streak on Saturday but dropped a game Sunday 3-1 in fourteen innings. As a team, the Marlins are hitting just .232 and their opponents are hitting .256. The Marlins will send Trevor Richards to the mound. He is 0-1 with a 2.00 ERA with 18 strikeouts and ten walks.
The OVER has cashed in 16 of the Cubs last 21 on the road. The offense has not been a problem for the Cubs as they are putting up over six runs a game. Pitching has been their problem, the Marlins have not been hitting the ball but should have chances against Darvish and or the Cubs pen.
Play on the over. This is a 9* play.
