3 units on Chicago -181 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
The Cubs have to be considered at any price under -200 at home. The Cubbies have dominated all comers to the tune of a 42-16 mark or winning over 72% of the time. The Astros Brandon Backe has had two distinctly different seasons. The ‘Stros are 6-4 when Backe starts at home, but a pitiful 3-10 when he starts on the road. Not exactly the type of pitcher that stops the Cubs at home. The Cubs slid for awhile going 12-14 over a 26-game stretch, but are back to winning again taking eight of their last 10. Cubs get the call in this one.
