While you may be thinking that this is too much chalk to be laying on this Cubs team, think again. The Pittsburgh Pirates may go down as the worst road team of all time in baseball this season. They carry an ugly 13-52 mark into this one, dropping their last 14. Worse than that is this team is now 2-31 on the road when facing a right-hand pitcher. The fact is that the oddsmakers can't match those numbers, and as chalky as this might sound, take a look at the other side. You’re getting less than 2-to-1 odds on a team that is 0-14 on the road in their last 14, and overall has won 2 of 32 on the road vs. right handers, which is 16 to 1. I'll play the value here, and it resides with the Cubs.
