Money Line: +152 Chi Cubs
Travis Wood is one of the best, if not the best, pitchers in the Cub's rotation. He has a 3.13 ERA and a 1.099 WHIP this season. Many times the Cubs have failed to provide Wood the run support he needs to win more games, but that should not be an issue today. The Cubs are scoring 4.2 runs per game at home this season and they will have an easier time scoring runs on Stephen Strasburg that most people think.
Strasburg has pitched some sensational games this year, but the bulk of those games were pitched on his home field. On the road Strasburg has a 1-5 record in 11 starts to go along with his 5.11 ERA. The National's offense has struggled on the road, batting just .225 and scoring a mere 3.3 runs per game. With both the offensive advantage, and the starting pitcher advantage there is simply too much value to pass up with the Cubs today.
