UNDER Looks Appealing in Cubs-Giants

Two National League powerhouses are set to square off on Saturday when the Chicago Cubs invade AT&T Park for a date with the San Francisco Giants. Chicago, which has won 25 of its first 31 games, had dropped three of its last four and five of eight before winning on Friday.

Shark Bites
  • The UNDER is 4-1 in the Cubs last 5 games.
  • The UNDER is 7-1 in the Giants last 8 games.
  • The Cubs are 6-2 in the last 8 meetings.

The Giants recently saw its season-high eight-game winning streak snapped, and a power outage on offense isn’t doing the team any favors. San Fran has scored 33 runs in its last 13 contests.

Jon Lester and Matt Cain will get the ball for the Cubbies and Giants, respectively. Lester (4-2, 1.88 ERA) has not allowed more than three runs in any of his eight starts this season, while Cain (0-5, 5.87) is winless in his last 17 appearances but has recorded quality starts in his last two outings.
