The Cubs have become the winningest home team in baseball, as they have now put together a 22-8 start. The Rockies have yet to find the magic they had at the end of last year and have truly been unproductive on the road, entering this one at 8-19. Jeff Francis is a factor in the struggle as he has pitched to a 6.18 ERA and the Rockies have won just three of his 10 starts. Francis has an ERA approaching 10 against the Cubs. Jason Marquis has had success against Colorado where he has logged a 5-3 mark with a 3.89 ERA. Best home team vs. worst road team says Cubs here. We also like this one to go UNDER, as when the Rockies have Francis on the mound as a dog have been 25-12-4 to the UNDER. Marquis has pitched UNDER to the tune of 10-4-1 in his last 15 starts with four days rest, so we will also play the UNDER here.
