Cubs/Padres Arrieta vs Darvish (I think) Cubs + 176 Padres -210 currently o/u 8 juiced to under -118
What are peoples thoughts on this game? I find it intriguing.
I'm a lifelong Cub fan but I have no problem betting against them when the situation dictates. I can't make any case for betting them today. Arrieta off game scores of FIVE and 22 in his last 2 starts. That is really bad. Sometimes we can overlook one poor start but two consecutive horrendous starts and we start wondering if there's a physical issue. Darvish a clear top line starter. Both bullpens are top 10, so the real edge is in starting pitching. Cubs dead last in WRC+ the past 7 days. I never lay a run and a half with a home team but I will lay a half run first 5.
What team has the best WRC+ in the past 7 days? None other than Baltimore, who has been killng lefties all season.
