Look I get the odds are quite juicy today but I'm almost certain the Cubs will pick up a W for us tonight! The Cubs simply have the better offense in this matchup against the Cardinals and I think they will have no issues scoring runs against Carlos Martinez. The Cub's offense scored 23 runs during the sweep of the Padres this past weekend and I look for their bats to stay hot against St. Louis! Carlos Martinez is only 4-4 with a 4.58 ERA in 25 games (15 starts) against the Chicago Cubs. The last time Martinez pitched against the Cubs he surrendered three runs and walked six batters in five innings of work. The Cardinals have lost four of their last six games and I see them struggling early in the second half of the season. Look for a convincing win by the Cubs tonight. 5 Cubs 3 Cardinals
Pick: Chicago Cubs ML (-150)
Best of luck!
