San Diego at Chicago

1.5 units on San Diego +105 (moneyline) (risk 1.5 to return 3.08) RESULT: WIN
It has been a long time since the Chicago Cubs have been a good team, and over a century since they have won a World Series. They took a hit when Neil Ramirez, their best reliever, left Wednesday's game with arm discomfort, and won't be available for this one. San Diego has won five of their last six games, and Justin Upton has been weilding a hot bat, hitting safely in all 10 games, including a tie-breaking HR in his last game. James Shields has delivered on the promise of providing a top-of-the-rotation pitcher for the Padres, and he is 1-0 so far with a 2.08 ERA. San Diego has had success at Wrigley where they scored 21 runs in their last two games, dating back to last season and winning both. And behind Shields in Chicago, they may not need much at all to get the win. Play on San Diego.
