Betting Trends

Prediction and Conclusion

Both teams stand near the bottom of their divisions but are only a couple of wins away from getting as high as second place. They have been struggling lately and are entering the stage of the season that may turn out to be the breaking point. The Giants scored 13 points last night against the Angels and are hoping to bring some of that hitting form to Chicago. The Giants will start with Jordan Hicks on the mound, who is 4-3 for the season with a 3.01 ERA, 64 K, 71.2 IP, and 1.20 WHIP. On the other side, the Cubs will have Javier Assad, who is 4-2 for the season with a 2.81 ERA, 72 K, 73.2 IP, and 1.24 WHIP. Looking at the previous head-to-heads, 8 of the last 10 games between these two teams finished under the total run line, and given the fact that both teams will have quality pitchers tonight, we are going with under 9.5 runs in total.
