Good morning players. We have taken another winner with Nationals downing the Brewers. Taking the game on the North side of Chicago. One of my favorite ball park the Wrigley Field.
St Louis Cardinals at Chicago Cubs
The Cardinals are rolling, creeping towards Pittsburgh and Cincinnati in NL Central. They have won 7 of last 10, their home stand was successful 6 wins out of 7 and sweeping the Cubs at home July 20 to 22nd. Now the rubber match with pitcher Adam Wainwright going for St Louis series win #3. Adam is coming off a quality start win against the Dodgers his third quality win in last 4 starts. They will look to take the Chicago series again this time in Chicago. However Paul Maholm will have a say in this game and this lefty has been pitching with authority. Yes the Cubs are lagging in NL Central and they may not reach the front runners, but money wise Chicago is rising much faster than St Louis. Let's take a look at St Louis in their previous road trip, July 13 to 18 six game through Cincinnati and Milwaukee, 1 win 4 losses failing to score more than 3 runs. How about the Cubs most recent home stand? July 13 to 19th six games facing Arizona and Miami taking 5 wins and 1 loss. Chicago is dangerous at home, 25-22 and in the black 56-43 Run line, Wainwright is in a spot to decline. Chicago to take the rubber match with their top winning pitcher Maholm.
CHICAGO CUBS +140 for 1 unit(W)
The Cubs let St Louis back in the game, but win in extra inning.
