Houston vs. Chi Cubs, 08/13/2012 20:05
Money Line: -177 Chi Cubs
Chicago Cubs -177
The Astros are 11-42 in their last 53 overall and 10-45 in their last 55 road games. They are even 0-5 in their last 5 games versus a team with a winning percentage below .400. The Cubs, meanwhile, are 6-0 in their last 6 home games versus a team with a road winning percentage of less than .400 and 5-1 in their last 6 games as a home favorite.
The Cubs are 3-0 at home against Houston this season, and they have the edge with Jeff Samardzija on the mound. The talented right-hander has been solid at Wrigley all season, going 3-3 (6-3 on the money line) with an ERA of 3.61. Houston's Armando Galarraga is 0-2 (0-3 on the money line) with an ERA of 5.28 on the year.
The Astros have dropped 8 of their last 9 at Wrigley, and I expect their struggles on the North Side to continue.
