Schule's MLB TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE *BLOCKBUSTER*
Oakland vs. Chi Cubs,
08/05/2019 20:05 EDT,
Score: 5 - 6
Money Line: -150 Chi Cubs
This is an 8* play on the Chicago Cubs.
The Cubs come into Game 1 of this home series versus Oakland as winners of seven of their last eight home games, and they look good here at a reasonable price.
Kyle Hendricks will toe the slab for Chicago, and he's always on top of his game at Wrigley. He's 4-2 with a 1.89 ERA in nine home starts this season.
The A's hand the ball to Chris Bassitt, who much like Hendricks has much better numbers at home. He also doesn't log a lot of innings, he hasn't gone past the 6th inning in any of his last 12 appearances.
The Athletics are 1-4 in the last five meetings in Chicago.
