I like this spot for the Pirates to steal a game. The Cubs are coming off of a huge let down after getting walked off on last night. The worst part about it was that they were up 5-1 in the 9th and lost by 2. Their bullpen is atrocious and Kimbrel is still out. Hendricks isnt as good on the road and I think the Pirates are prime candidates to knock them off here.
Simply put, the Pirates continue to be one of the worst teams in the league since the All-Star Break and I do not trust Musgrove any further than I can throw him. The Cubs have been underwhelming on the road this season, but Kyle Hendricks is still a much better pitcher than Musgrove and -140 is a reasonable price on the much better Cubs with the much better pitcher. Lay the juice.
