1.5 units on Chicago +110 (moneyline) (risk 1.5 to return 3.15)  RESULT: WIN

The Chicago Cubs are clicking at the right time, on a 32-14 run. Chicago starter Kyle Hendricks is throwing well, allowing 3 or fewer runs in six of his last eight starts. The team is 7-2 his last nine starts and he has a winning road mark. The Cubs are 24-7 following a win, plus 26-9 against a right-handed starter. Hendricks faces a Pittsburgh offense that is #15 in runs scored and #23 in slugging. The Pirates have 31-year-old Charlie Morton going, with the team 1-3 in his last four starts. Chicago won 3-2 yesterday and the Pirates are 3-10 in Morton's last 13 starts after scoring 2 or fewer runs in their previous game. Morton is just 3-5 with a 4.71 ERA in 13 career starts against the Cubs, so grab the hot dog and play the Cubs.
