Chicago Cubs starting pitcher Jake Arrieta looks for his second win in as many starts when facing the Pittsburgh Pirates for the second time this afternoon.

Betting Impact:

The Cubs are -143 moneyline favorites, per BettingPros consensus odds. Jake Arrieta allowed one run on six hits over six innings, striking out five in his first start against the Pirates. He is 5-4 with a 3.75 ERA in 12 career starts at PNC Park. The 12 starts there are his most at any park as a visitor. Pittsburgh Tyler Anderson was Arrieta's opponent in the first start, and he allowed five hits and three runs, walked two and struck out seven. That start raised Anderson's ERA to 4.32 in four career starts against the Cubs.
