If Gray [layed for the Cubs he would have a winning record. I'm not saying he is dominant but he goes out and does a very pedestrian job. Darvish will get the benefit of having the Cubs behind him today. His confidence is coming back from his rocky start and Darvish and the Cubs win one today.
As bad as Darvish has been at times this season the Cubs 4-1 in Darvishs last five starts. Oddly enough, Darvish is much better on the road (2-1; 4.42 ERA) than he is at home (0-2; 6.38 ERA) this season. As for Gray, hes coming off a walk-heavy performance last week, and even when hes on this year he doesnt get much support from his offense. This game is more about offensive production that ERA's. I think Vegas is giving us a gift with Cubs +108 here today.
