Recent Form

After suffering a 1-run loss to the Yankees (2-1), the Cubs will look to get back in the win column. Despite the loss, Chicago’s pitching staff gave up only 2 runs on 6 hits. Offensively, they finished with just 1 run on 9 hits. The loss came as Chicago was the betting underdog, getting 220.0 on the moneyline. Combined, the Cubs and Yankees fell short of the over-under betting line of 9.0 runs. Even after this game, Chicago’s overall over-under record sits at 28-26-3.

After their 5 most recent games, the Cubs have gone just 1-4. In this rough stretch of games, the team’s run differential comes in at -7. A key reason for Chicago’s recent struggles is an offense averaging just 3.4 runs per game over their last 5 contests, compared to a season average of 4.37. Chicago’s overall series record is just 4-10-5.

The Yankees will look to add another win, as in their last game, they defeated the Cubs by a score of 2-1. In the winning effort, the team’s pitchers held the Cubs to 1 run and 9 hits. At the plate, the Yankees only came through for 2 runs on 6 hits. In the game, New York was able to take care of business as they were the favorite at -270.0. So far, the team has won 72.0% of the games in which they were favored. Combined, the Yankees and Cubs’ run total fell below the over-under line of 9.0 runs. This result comes as no surprise, as the team’s over-under record is just 26-31-1.

Across their last 5 contests, the Yankees are above .500, going 4-1. Their recent success is backed by an average scoring margin of +4 (last 5). New York is still playing winning baseball, even with their offense averaging just 5.6 runs per game, compared to a season-long mark of 4.84. On the season, New York has won more than half of their series, going 15-2-2.


Will Rodgers Sports HandicapperI won my last two MLB playoff picks and am going for three straight on Friday in Game 1 of the World Series! I had a sparkling run down the stretch (in the regular season), and look to finish in the same fashion in the postseason. Hop on board now!

Matt Swarmer gets the start for the Cubs, with an overall record of 1-0. In his previous outings, Swarmer is lasting an average of 6.0 innings, putting together an ERA of just 1.5.

Chicago Cubs at New York Yankees Prediction

Heading into today’s matchup between Chicago and New York, the Yankees are once again heavy favorites on the moneyline. Even though the Cubs played New York tough in last night’s game, I expect the Yankees to pick up a convincing win. Matt Swarmer has been good in his first two outings for the Cubs, but the Yankees lineup will be his toughest test so far. I like New York to cover the runline.
