St. Louis +137 over CHICAGO

2:20 PM EST. Wade Leblanc (LHP - STL) is what he is, but this play is not about him or the Cardinals. This game is a straight fade against the Cubs, who cannot be favored in this range against a superior team or even an inferior one for that matter. Quite frankly and with all due respect to the Snakes and Rockies, we’re not even sure if there is an inferior team to the Cubs. Chicago is hitting a combined .194 (dead last in the majors) over the past eight weeks!

On the surface, the Cubs might look like a solid play with Kyle Hendricks (RHP - CHI) taking the bump, but much like the Baseball Team in the AL, we're not sure how the Cubs are hovering around .500. There really isn't anything they do well. Hendricks is consistent, as he gets the odd win and can strike guys out, but at a price like this with the wet noodles behind him, no thanks. Have three players worn out more quickly than Anthony Rizzo, Kris Bryant and Javier Baez? Bryant and Baez can't stay healthy and Rizzo is almost 32. The glory days for this core are over. The North Side got shut out yesterday 8-0 and have won just one of their last 10. Explain to us why they are priced in this range.
