Why bet on the Chicago Cubs?The Cubs had what was a bit of a strange Wednesday afternoon, as they had to complete a suspended game against the Mets from the previous night before getting to their scheduled game against the Mets. They won the make-up game, but feel to the Mets in the full game, bringing to an end their 7-game win streak. That nice little run of form has helped the Cubs open up a 4 ½ game lead in the division, but given how the St. Louis Cardinals are playing right now, the Cubs will be well aware that this thing is far from over. This will the 6th meeting between these two teams this season, with Cubs trailing 3-2 in the games played thus far. They will try to even things up with Mike Montgomery (4-4, 3.62 ERA) on the mound.
Why bet on the Atlanta Braves?I think we are all a little surprised to see the Braves still holding a 3 ½ game lead at the top of the NL East at this stage of the season. They are a young team filled with prospects that they have picked up over the last few years, but you have to say that their approach is working. The Braves come into this make-up game off a split in their interleague series with the Tampa Bay Rays which is not an awful result when you consider just how good Tampa have been over the last couple of weeks. The last two meetings with the Cubs in Atlanta were very much on the low-scoring side of things, with the two teams combining for an average of 5 RPG. Hitting the mound for Atlanta today will be Mike Foltynewicz (10-8, 2.67 ERA).
