Top MLB Betting Odds & Picks for Cubs vs. Pirates

Chicago Cubs vs. Pittsburgh Pirates RL

The Pirates have won the first two games of this four-game series by a combined 19-2 and entered last night’s games against the Cubs having won three straight. However, Pittsburgh failed to earn its first four-game winning streak of the season, as Chicago crushed them 14-5 last night. The win is just the Cubs’ third in their previous 16 games.

Chicago’s pitchers entered last night’s game with a 7.11 ERA over that poor 15-game stretch. However, Justin Steele (2-5, 4.27) has been one of the bright spots in the rotation lately. Steele has pitched to a 3.65 ERA over his last seven starts but an even better 1.89 ERA (1-0) in three June starts. Pittsburgh’s Jose Quintana (1-4, 3.66) is going the other way, going 0-2 with a 6.50 ERA in four June starts. Quintana has allowed five home runs in his last 10.1 innings, and opponents are hitting a blistering .321 against him this month.

With the significant disparity in the pitching momentum in this game, we are riding with the Cubs to end this series on a big positive note.
