  • Missed this one but loved the OVER 4.5 Runs for Pirates. Darvish has been awful during the day with a 6.8 ERA and he is just terrible at Wrigley.

      Since getting rocked in the post season and everyone saying he tips his pitches Yu Darvish has not been the same. I don't know how long the Cubs can keep putting him out there as a starter. His 2-4 record doesn't represent how truly unreliable he has been. I think the Pirates have a chance here. Should take a look at the over here today as well.

      My Pick: Pittsburgh +155 & Over 9.5 60%

        I think there is value here in the Pirates facing Yu Darvish in Wrigley. The Cubs are 1-4 in Darvish last 5 starts against a team with a losing record. He really hasnt been reliable at all for the Cubs this year. Darvish has allowed at least four runs in three consecutive starts which included four runs against the Pirates in his previous start before the break. Archer hasnt been as sharp as he would like but his team backs him up here as they have won four of the seven meetings against the Cubs this season, and they had momentum coming into the break, winning five out of their last seven games overall. Im takingthe Pirates with Archer and his overall career numbers here.

        My Pick: Pittsburgh +140 70%

          ***OVER 9*** Since both of these teams possess below average pitching staffs, I have to lean to the over in this game. Furthermore, the Cubs and the Pirates have the ability to put up at least five runs in any baseball game so I think that this total of 9 runs is too low.

            Archer simple hasn't been good this season and will be looking to turn things around in the second half after posting just three quality starts in 15 outings before the break. Darvish is going for the Cubs today and he hasn't been exactly been lighting the world on fire this season posting a 5.01 ERA himself. Cubs should be favored here but -160 just feels like a steep price and I don't trust Darvish at these odds. I like Pittsburgh here as the value bet.

            My Pick: Pittsburgh +140 50%

                  Bleed Cubbie Blue: Cubs 4, Pirates 3: Good for Yu (and KB too!)

                  Before we talk about the great performance of Yu Darvish and the key hits by Kris Bryant in the Cubs' 4-3 win over the Pirates Friday afternoon, I think we should start at the end of this game.

                  And that's because I believe this is the first game in Wrigley Field history that was decided on a replay review.

                  Situation: Two out in the ninth, Kevin Newman at bat, Craig Kimbrel on the mound. Newman hits a ground ball to David Bote at third [VIDEO].

                  Bucs Dugout: Series Preview: Cubs host Pirates to kick off the second half

                  The Pirates try to build off of their strong finish to the first half of the season as they travel north to Wrigley Field to battle with the Cubs. All games in this series will be matinees. Chicago is in first and has a half game lead over Milwaukee in the National League Central. Pittsburgh is just 2.5 games behind the Cubs and two games ahead of the Reds, who reside in last place.

                  The Cubs sort of stumbled while closing out the first half of their 2019 season, dropping six of their last ten which includes dropping three of four against the Pirates last week.
