First posted MLB plays of the season.
Pirates ML at +134 for 2 units. Pirates are 4th in the league in runs scored this season. They have been hot and I look for them to stay hot in this cold Chicago climate. Chatwood is starting for the Cubs and I like the improvement he has shown since 2016. The Cubs do too as they gave him a 3 year, $38 million contract this past offseason. Chatwood gave up 6 walks in his only start this season, and that is just to many base runners against this hot Pirates team. Also, Rizzo is out for the Cubs.
White Sox ML at +101 for 2 units. White Sox have to win a home game eventually right? There may have been more Cubs fans in the park yesterday than White Sox fans. This is a Blake Snell fade. Even Giancarlo Stanton has homered against Snell this year. Stanton is the first player this season with two 5 strikeout games. There were 5 of these 5 strikeout games in the entire 2017 season. The White Sox’s bats woke up a little yesterday, and I expect that trend to continue against a worse starter.
May add more plays later
