Betting Pick: Chicago Cubs vs. Miami Marlins

Betting Pick: Chicago Cubs vs. Miami Marlins

The Chicago Cubs are on the road as they open a three-game set with the Miami Marlins Monday night. Chicago was rained out Sunday afternoon, leaving them with a split of a shortened weekend set with the Angels: they fell 6-5 on Saturday afternoon. Miami played the rubber game of a three-game set with the Phillies at home Sunday, losing 3-1 in 14 innings. The Cubs took five of seven meetings last season though the teams split four meetings at Marlins Park.

Chicago was washed out in the finale of their set Sunday by inclement weather, giving them an unexpected off day. The Cubs entered Sunday’s action four games behind the Brewers in the NL Central race. Chicago trailed 3-0 after an inning and half and couldn’t get back to even in the contest. 

Miami’s offense dried up after a 10-run outburst in Saturday’s middle game of the set against the Phillies as they mustered a single run on Sunday. The Marlins entered Sunday night six games behind the Mets and Phillies in the NL East race. Miami finished with just five hits in the game with Neil Walker having two: Brian Anderson hit his second homer in the contest to account for their lone run. Jose Urena pitched well but ended up with a no-decision on the mound: he threw seven innings, allowing one run on seven hits with no walks and seven strikeouts.

The art of sports betting is not something that is taught or learned overnight. Like most hobbies, it takes time and effort to pick winning spreads and keep momentum. Many novice sports bettors choose to bet with their hearts instead of their minds. Sports betting is about statistical information, the type of knowledge that only comes through following teams, players and game results.
