3 units on Chicago -160 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3)  RESULT: WIN

Like any good team the Cubs are prone to having a "hiccup" during the course of a 162-game season and they have experienced theirs. The Cubs went 15-18 for a stretch, but the before and after mark is an impressive 54-28. The home record during the little hiccup was just 7-6, and sandwiched around that is an impressive 36-10 mark. So when we see around 1.5-1 odds for them at home. The Cubbies have won nine of their last 11 and are back on track, so this game is chock full of value in our eyes. The Cubs bring Ted Lilly to the mound who got off to a horrendous start, but the Cubs have now been 13-5 in his last 18 starts including 8-1 in his last nine at home, and things look even better. Brandon Looper has made only two starts on the road against a team with a winning record and the Cards have dropped both games. We like the Cubs in this one at home.
