3* MLB *Friday Night Feast* on Diamondbacks -145
Fading the Cubs here as they have been poor on the road and against southpaw starters.
Since manager Sveum took over, the Cubs are just 10-26 on the road and 3-15 against left-handed starters. Dating back to last season, the Cubs are 17-40 in their last 57 road games and 5-22 in their last 27 road games vs. a left-handed starter.
The Diamondbacks are 7-1 in their last 8 at home, where they are hitting .283 and scoring 5.1 runs per game on the season. They will have an excellent chance to do some damage against Chicago's Samardzija, who is 0-2 (0-3 on the ML) with an ERA of 8.36 over his last 3 starts.
Arizona's Saunders has been much better of late with an ERA of 2.89 over his last 3 outings. We'll take the Snakes.
