Marlins vs Cubs Free Pick 06/07/17
The Chicago Cubs have turned it around of late with five straight victories. They hung a 10-spot on the Marlins yesterday and should stay red hot at the plate here Wednesday to win by multiple runs over Miami.
Now they get to feast on Jose Urena, who is 3-2 with a 4.50 ERA and 1.375 WHIP in six starts this season. Urena has really struggled of late with an 8.16 ERA and 1.745 WHIP in his last three starts. He has allowed 13 earned runs and five homers in 14 innings of work during this stretch.
John Lackey has been far from his dominant self this season, but he should be able to handle a weak Marlins lineup that has gone just 10-17 in road games this year. And Lackey is coming off one of his best starts of the year in which he allowed just two runs and six base runners in 7 innings of a 3-2 win over St. Louis.
The Marlins are 1-9 in their last 10 road games vs. a right-handed starter. Miami is 1-5 in Urena’s last six starts vs. NL Central opponents. The Cubs are 52-22 in their last 74 home games. Chicago is 6-1 in Lackey’s last seven starts vs. a team with a losing record. Bet the Cubs on the Run Line Wednesday.
