2 units on Chicago -128 (moneyline) (risk 2 to return 2)  RESULT: WIN

The Cubs had a bad stretch that saw them go 15-18. The before and after tells the real story of this team and that team went 57-29, and currently on a 13-5 run since the bad streak. They have now also won their last five on the road. Rich Harden was brought in to add another ace to the staff and has proven two things in his career. First - he generally doesn't stay health. However, the second is that when he does, he is 37-20 in his career and he simply wins games. He is now on a team that wins a lot of games and pitching better than he has his entire career with an ERA of 2.27. Jorge Campillo has become the ace of the Braves’ staff, but is that good enough on a bad team against a very good team? The answer is found in this stat. The Braves just don't hit enough and are a major-league worst 6-24 in one-run games. In a game where runs may be at a premium, which side would you rather be on? Our choice is the Cubs in game two.
