Carlos Zambrano is having a big year for the Cubs. The Cubbies have now won 11 of his last 15 starts and has had seven starts on the season allowing one run or less. The Astros are just 15-28 over their last 43 games and have just not been a very good team in '08. Wandy Rodriguez had a 1.99 ERA through June 8, but has since struggled, posting an ERA of 5.29. The Cubs are a far better team than the Astros and have a huge pitching edge as well as short odds, so we'll back them here.
