St. Louis at Chicago
Wednesday 07/08 08:05 PM Eastern
1 unit on Chicago -102 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 1.98) RESULT: LOSS
The surging Chicago Cubs are off a doubleheader sweep in this key division showdown. Chicago is on a 7-2 run, putting up 12 runs yesterday in two wins. St. Louis is not a great offensive team at #20 in runs scored, and has sputtered of late with six losses in its last nine outings. The Cardinals are 2-9 after allowing five runs or more in their previous game. The Cardinals go with Michael Wacha, but are 3-4 in his past seven starts and the Cubs are 5-1 vs. a starter with a WHIP less than 1.15. Cubs righty Jason Hammel (2.89) has limited opponents to two or fewer earned runs in six of his past seven outings. The Cubs are 11-2 when Hammel faces a team with a winning record, plus the Cardinals are 2-5 in the last seven meetings at Wrigley Field. Take the Cubs in this one.
