Chi Cubs vs. Milwaukee, 05/11/2012 20:10
Money Line: -111 Chi Cubs
MLB FREE PICK: Chicago Cubs -111
The Chicago Cubs have quietly started to play a lot better baseball, and I think they are favored at Milwaukee for good reason tonight. The Cubs will send out Matt Garza against Randy Wolf, and I don't think there is any question Chicago has the edge on the mound. Garza is 2-1 with a 2.67 ERA and 0.891 WHIP in five starts. He has been on top of his game against the Brewers in the past, going 3-1 with a 3.07 ERA in four starts.
Wolf has really struggled to get opposing batters out, and as a result he is just 2-3 with a 6.68 ERA and 1.825 WHIP. You know a pitcher is struggling when they struggle at San Francisco and San Diego, which is where Wolf's last two starts took place. He allowed 7 runs on 18 hits in 11 innings over those two starts. While Chicago has had their struggles offensively, I think there is a good chance they put up 4-5 runs tonight. Plenty of run-support for Garza to secure the win and cash our bet! BET CHICAGO!
