Phillies vs Cubs MLB Odds, Game Info & Expert Pick
If you were asked to pick all 6 division winners right now, who would you be putting your money on? We all know that the standings as they look at this stage of the season are seldom how they look once we make it all the way to the end of the 162-game season. There are a couple of teams that immediately jump out, with the Houston Astros in the American League and the LA Dodgers in the National League looking the most likely to sustain their current level of play. We can say that because they have made a habit of playing at this level over the course of the last few seasons.
There are some teams, though, that look as though they might be in a dogfight to maintain their current divisional lead. It can be argued that the Philadelphia Phillies and the Chicago Cubs are in that position, as they have definite challengers in their respective divisions. These two head into the 3rd game in this series having split the opening 2 games, so it’s all to play for in this one. The Cubs are favored by 1 ½, with the run total set at 10 ½.

Why bet on the Philadelphia Phillies?The Phillies had a decent season last year, but the addition of Bryce Harper in the offseason was supposed to be the move that put them over the top. While they are not blowing everyone out of the water, they have jumped out to a 28-20 record, which has them up by 2 ½ games on the Atlanta Braves in the NL East. Their opening 2 games in Chicago in this series ended in a split, which perfectly reflects their play on the road this season, where they are 10-10 SU.
Even with their loss on Tuesday night, the Phillies are still 6-4 in their last 10 games. They have also covered the spread in each of their last 3 games and are 6-3 ATS as a road dog. They will send Cole Irvin (2-0, 2.77 ERA) to the mound for this one.
- Runs: 4.92
- Hits: 8.19
- Walks: 4.08
- Strike Outs: 8.62
- Runs: 4.29
- Hits: 8.98
- Walks: 3.42
- Strike Outs: 8.46
Why bet on the Chicago Cubs?The Chicago Cubs overcame a slow start to the season to get on a roll and surge to the top of the NL Central. They are still there now, 2 games up on the chasing pack, but this looks a like a division that is going to be competitive all the way to the finish. The Cubs lost the opening game of this series in extra innings, but they bounced back by winning another tight one 3-2 on Tuesday night.
This is a team that has not been a very good bet against the spread, failing to cover in each of their last 4 games and going 9-10 ATS as a road favorite. Overall at Wrigley this season, they are 13-10 ATS and 16-7 SU. Former Phillies starter Cole Hamels (4-0, 3.13 ERA) will start for the Cubs.
- Runs: 5.33
- Hits: 8.80
- Walks: 4.33
- Strike Outs: 8.89
- Runs: 4.04
- Hits: 8.04
- Walks: 3.98
- Strike Outs: 8.96

Excellent To Date
Premier adult entertainment, it is difficult to find high quality sites in this industry like MB.
Quick and Courteous
After betting with a few other sites, MyBookie has gained my business. I most bet NHL and MLB games and have had both losses and success. After winning several hundred, I reached out to an agent for help with a BTC withdrawal who kindly and promptly asked my questions. The withdrawal hit my wallet in 2 days. Very impressed by the speed and personnel. Keep it up.
They Really Do Pay-Out
After being screwed by POSH and a few others, I’m always a little skeptical when it comes to online gambling. But MyBookie has already paid me three times. ANd other than a few hoops, caused by mothering banks, it’s all been a positive!
Response from MyBookie Online Sportsbook
Hi Mark, We’re so glad that we’ve provided a positive experience so far! If you ever need our help, feel free to contact us.
The payout process is pretty quick compared to other books.
Rather than waiting multiple weeks mybookie limits it to just a couple of days. They have opportunities every single week with bonus opportunities that I have cashed in on multiple times and they even paid out my friend on the Luka Doncic MVP pick and we’re only halfway through the year!
The best online sports book around.
I can’t say enough great things about MyBookie. From the betting format, the amount of bets that are offered, and to the great staff who willl help you out anytime you need it. If you’re looking at making a deposit with an online sports book, look no further than MyBookoe.
