3 units on Houston +114 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
The Cubs have been playing great baseball as they have won 9 of 11, but let's not be completely fooled here as 10 of those were at home. The fact is the Cubs have won just four of their last 11 on the road. They have gotten much more out of Ryan Dempster than they could have ever expected, and a regression to the mean is certainly on the horizon for him. The Astros have played 18 of their last 25 on the road and have held their own. They have been great at home winning eight of their last 10. Chris Sampson has struggled at home, and expect him to have a much better outing today against the Cubs. We'll grab the division rival as a home dog in this one.
