(957) Chi. Cubs vs. Milwaukee (958) 7:40 PM | Tue, Apr 13 2021
Sport: MLB | Star Rating: 10.0 Evaluation: Loss (-1330)
MIL (-133) @ pinnacle
This is a high price to pay against Kyle Hendricks, but I agree with it. In Hendricks' last 10 games as a road underdog, he's just 3-7 with his team giving up 27 runs in the last 4 of those (and 0-3 L3 as a road dog when the opponent is -130 or higher). He's also been worse on the road in his career than at home (3.73 ERA to 2.55). He's 0-1 in his last 3 years at Miller Park but has had 4 starts in those games, even though his ERA has been good. Milwaukee is 5-2 L7 at home against the Cubs and 7-3 overall L10 against them. This is a terrible matchup for the Cubs' offense, as they lead the MLB in K rate against a starter in Woodruff that's averaging 10.73 K's per 9 innings.

 Woodruff is 0-1 against the Cubs in his career but has given up just 5 runs in 4 starts (23 1/3 IP) in his last 2 years against them. Milwaukee's offense has heated up L3 games, scoring 24 runs in that span, and they just seem to be moving in a different direction than the Cubs, who are hitting at a historically low pace right now.


What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
We are constantly evaluating online sportsbooks and line feeds to ensure accuracy with our Expert picks. We typically have between 5-10 legal and reputable sportsbooks for our handicappers to select lines from. They are required to select the current line from these featured books so authenticity can always be confirmed – no stale lines!
