09/12/2019 15:40 EDT,
Score: 4 - 1
Money Line: -136 Chi Cubs
A 4-0 loss to the Padres on Wednesday dropped the Cubs into a tie with the Milwaukee Brewers for the final NL playoff berth and they will now be primed for a bounce back effort as losses are unacceptable at this juncture of their campaign. SAN DIEGO is 4-14 against the money line after a win by 4 runs or more this season
Padres starter LAMET is 0-7 against the money line in home games vs. good power teams - averaging 1.25 or more HR's/game over the last 3 seasons. (Team's Record) Padres are 0-9 in Lamets last 9 home starts.
Cubs are 35-16 in their last 52 during game 4 of a series.
Meanwhile, Cubs starter Yu Darvish(5-6, 4.12 ERA, 190 SO)After missing one turn (right forearm tightness), he returned Saturday with five shutout innings vs. Milwaukee. He struck out seven and walked one in a no-decision. Darvish has a 2.96 ERA with 85 strikeouts and four walks in his last 11 starts and gets my support here this afternoon in a West coast tilt.
Play on the Chicago Cubs to win on the ML
