    I took this line this morning at -220 and I'm not really surprised to see the movemnet. I parlayed this with the Reds ML but this is my play of the day. I know it's not the greatest price but when I first look at games I do everything but look at vegas odds first. I try to decide what matchups I like the best and who I think is going ot win the game. We are at the point where we can trhow out the first few months of the season for darvish because those numbers are skewing our perception of the guy. If you look at his 2nd half numbers this year you see he has a SIERA under three with a stike out rate of 36% and a walk rate of 1%. ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? those numbers are insane and now you throw in the fact that the giants has a projected lineup who's average xwOBA is .305 which is hands down one of the worst in the leagues. It doesn't get much better when breaking donw the other side of this because Rodriguez has a strike out rate of 15% and the cubs lineup has a projected ISO of .189 which is huge. I wish the wind was blowing out because I think the giants are going to have a hard time making good contact with the ball and Rodriquez is going to need huge BABIP in his favor if he wasnt to win this. Give me the cubs

    My Pick: Chicago -250

    Covers community free betting prediction for
    Chicago Cubs
    (70% consensus). The Chicago Cubs and red-hot Anthony Rizzo continue pursuit of the National League Central title or a wild card spot as they host the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday in the middle contest of their three-game series. Rizzo has four home runs in his last five games after belting two for his first multi-homer contest of the season in Tuesday's 5-3 victory, making him the seventh Cub with at least six 25-homer campaigns and leading Chicago to its third straight victory... http://bit.ly/2GveEJC

    Bleed Cubbie Blue: Cubs 5, Giants 3: Battle of the long ball

    Just yesterday, BCB's Sara Sanchez posted an article here about the home-run explosion in MLB this season. There are likely going to be at least 1,000 more home runs hit in baseball this year than last.

    That's a concern, to be sure, for the game's future. In the meantime, the Cubs took advantage of the long-ball surge, hitting three of them on their way to a 5-3 win over the Giants in the first game of a six-game homestand. It was the 27th time this year the Cubs have hit at least three home runs in a game, almost 22 percent of their total games.

    San Jose Mercury News: Home run wave wipes out Beede, Giants fall back to .500 in Chicago

    CHICAGO -- The baseball is flying like never before and few Giants have reaped the rewards quite like rookie outfielder Mike Yastrzemski.

    So when Yastrzemski sent a pitch in the air toward deep center field in the seventh inning on Tuesday, the fans inside a packed Wrigley Field took a deep breath.

    Cubs fans had seen their own hitters pummel three home runs off Giants starter Tyler Beede, watched the Giants hit two homers of their own against Cole Hamels and for the last five months, experienced the twists and turns that come with a bullpen that takes Chicago on a nightly roller coaster ride.

    Cubs Insider: Chicago Cubs Score and Recap (8/20/19): Cubs 5, Giants 3- All They Do is Win, Win, Win (at Home)

    It looked as if the San Francisco Giants and Chicago Cubs were going to play home run derby at Wrigley Field, as the first six runs of the game were scored via the long ball. However, with the score tied at 3-3, the Cubs played small ball, scoring via a soft single and sac fly en route to a 5-3 win.

    Nicholas Castellanos and Anthony Rizzo went yard in the bottom of the 1st inning, each hitting solo shots to gift Cubs' starter Cole Hamels with an early 2-0 lead. Hamels, though, gave the runs right back to the Giants in the top of the 2nd.

    McCovey Chronicles: Cubs walk all over Giants

    This was a close game that never really felt that close. The Cubs never had more than a two-run lead, so a comeback was always theoretically possible, but the Giants had to scrape and claw just to keep the Cubs within reach. The Cubs only outhit the Giants 9-to-6, but Giants pitchers walked seven batters. One of those was intentional, but it's hard to win when the team is issuing that many free passes.

    As Tyler Beede prepared to throw his first pitch of the evening, Buster Posey set his target on the outside corner.
