MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Chicago Cubs at Pittsburgh Pirates

Chicago (Hendricks) -125 at Pittsburgh (Cole) O/U 7.5
Recommendation: Over

After a slow start to the season, the Chicago Cubs are the hottest hitting team in MLB. The offense has pounded out 53 runs and hit 12 home runs over its last six games. The opposing starters during that span however were all below average. The Cubs will see a more premium arm tonight in Gerrit Cole who two weeks ago tossed 6 innings and allowed only two runs against this lineup. The Cubs though made Cole work as he threw 114 pitches (19 per inning) and given their current form with the quick second look, I project they’ll be more productive at the plate this time around. Chicago’s Kyle Hendricks was pitted against Cole in that start and labored through five innings. Hendricks allowed three runs in five innings with only three strikeouts and two walks. Even more alarming is that was arguably his best outing of the season as lack of command and significantly diminished velocity have resulted in seven walks and four home runs in three starts. The previous matchup ended in a 4-2 Pittsburgh win with both bullpens combining for a near-flawless 7 innings and 1 earned run. Expecting more offense tonight with mild temps and two hittable starting pitchers.
