Money Line: +133 Chi Cubs
The Cubs offense is rolling right now and they are coming off a seven run performance on Thursday against Milwaukee. They will have one of their best pitchers on the mound with Travis Wood. This season Wood has posted a 2.85 ERA. He has a 0.968 WHIP on the road and has allowed just 22 hits in those 31 innings pitched. Wood's record may be 5-6 this season, but that is because the Cubs inability to provide run support. I don't anticipate that being an issue today considering how well the Cubs have been hitting. They are averaging over five runs per game the past seven games.
Iwaukuma will get the start for Seattle today and he has been trending in the wrong direction. Normally a solid pitcher, Iwakuma has a 1-2 record in his last three starts. He has given up a home run in each of those games. Run support will be an issue for the Mariners against Wood. They have a .228 batting average against left handed starters. Seattle has also struggled in Interleague play batting .187 and averaging a mere 3.5 runs per game.
