Arrieta Riding a Crazy Scoreless Streak

Jake Arrieta Chicago Cubs

Chicago Cubs’ ace Jake Arrieta picked up where he left off in hist first start of the 2016 campaign, tossing seven shutout innings against the Los Angeles Angels. The 2015 Cy Young Award winner has not give up a run in 29 consecutive innings dating back to September 16. Arrieta squares off against another talented hurler on Sunday in Shelby Miller of the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Shark Bites
  • The UNDER is 5-1-1 in Arrieta's last 7 road starts.
  • The Cubs are 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.
  • The Diamondbacks are 8-3 in their last 11 games following a loss.

Miller had a rough debut for the D-backs, allowing six runs in six innings versus the Colorado Rockies. All six runs came in the fourth inning via three home runs.

The Cubs are still reeling from the news that talented outfielder Kyle Schwarber will miss the season after the 23-year-old suffered a devastating knee injury. Chicago has no shortage of firepower even without him in the fold, however.

Due to Arrieta’s prowess on the mound, it shouldn’t surprise anyone to learn the UNDER is a hot bet when he takes the hill. In his last 11 starts, the UNDER is 8-2-1.
