3 units on Chicago -154 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
Chicago owns the best mark in the league at 33-21 and they have won four straight. We really like their chances today of getting #5 in a row. Yes, Aaron Cook goes for Colorado and he has been a lone bright spot for the Rockies. But, his ERA has been slipping of late (4.29 over his last three starts compared to sub 2.50 in his first eight). And he just gets no run support. Colorado is averaging 3.7 runs per game on the road. Over the past seven games, Colorado has lost by an average of 4.3 runs per game! Chicago is the exact opposite. They are averaging 6.4 runs per game at home this season on .307 hitting. Lilly has been average at best but with that kind of run support, and a very solid pen (3.14 ERA) backing him up, he'll do fine against this weak Rockies offense. Chicago is 18-4 this season to a line of -100 to -150. Let's make that 19-4 after today.
