Cubs (-135) at Washington
The once promising Cubbies need a win to get back on track after being swept over the weekend by the upstart Marlins.
I love Drew Smyly! He’s the Cubs new stopper, like back in the old days of Dennis Eckersley or Bill Hands. Remember them?
He’s been a beast in his last four starts, giving up just four earned runs over 23 innings. And the Nats are downright pitiful, despite their win on Sunday.
Get this: Chicago is 11-3 in their last 14 games against left-handed pitchers. Hello MacKenzie Gore!
The Cubs need to shake the Miami blues.
Pick: Cubbies (-135)
Blue Jays at Boston (+145)
Don’t look now but the Red Sox are on a modest roll! Winners of two straight–maybe they get hot at Fenway?
Corey Kluber is coming off a great start against Baltimore — giving up just one run in six innings. He got torched in Minnesota (Twins players dubbed it: “Land of a 1,000 Rakes”), so maybe he’s found his groove. Who knows? He’s worth the value price at home.
Meantime, I have lost on Jose Berrios three straight games. No, this is not a revenge bet! Ok, maybe a little. Berrios has been a pea-shooter on the road so far: 14 earned runs in 16.2 innings! Beam me up Scotty (actually back to Toronto).
