Miami at Chicago
Sunday 07/05 02:20 PM Eastern
1 unit on Chicago -135 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 1.74) RESULT: WIN
Can't trust Miami on the road, and can't trust Mat Latos (3-5, 5.27 ERA) anywhere. Latos has been hittable all year, and the team is 2-5 his last seven starts. Miami's offense is 25th in baseball in runs scored, 22nd in OBP. The Marlins are 2-8 in their last 10 road games and 16-35 as a road underdog. They face young Chicago team with high expectations and one gaining confidence, winning four of five. The Cubs are 17-8 when Kyle Hendricks starts, including 6-0 when he is a home favorite. Hendricks stymied the Mets offense on Tuesday, shutting them out for six innings to earn the win. The Cubs come off a 7-2 victory on Saturday and are 6-1 against the National League East. Play the Cubs.
