Indians Seek to Close Out World Series at Wrigley

Excitement in the Windy City was extremely high when the Chicago Cubs were set to host their first World Series game in 71 years, but Wrigley Field has become a field of sadness over the weekend. The Cubbies, who dropped Game 4 by a score of 7-2 on Saturday, find themselves in a 3-1 hole to the Cleveland Indians. The Indians can send the Cubs packing in Game 5 at Chicago.

Shark Bites
  • The Indians are 4-1 in Bauer's last five starts.
  • The UNDER is 4-1 in the Cubs last five games.
  • The UNDER is 4-1 in the last five meetings in Chicago.

Trevor Bauer and Jon Lester are slated to get the start of the Indians and Cubbies, respectively. Bauer (0-1, 5.00 ERA) will be starting on short rest, and he’s never done that in his major league career. The hurler tossed seven scoreless innings in his only career outing at Wrigley in 2015.

Lester (2-1, 1.69) gave up three runs in 5 2/3 innings in the Game 1 loss but he still owns a 2.60 ERA in 124 2/3 innings in his postseason career. He’ll have to be wary of Indians short stop Francisco Lindor, who’s recorded multiple hits in three of four games in the series.

Yesterday’s game went OVER, but the UNDER is still red-hot when the Indians take the field. The UNDER is 10-1 in Cleveland’s last 11 postseason affairs.

NFL Week 8 Betting Primer

If you've been all over favorites this season, you're probably trying to dig yourself out of a hole as they've cashed in just 42% of games. Underdogs have had the edge in six of the seven weeks so far and you'd have to think favorites will eventually start to come out on top more frequently.

If you like to bet NFL underdogs, you may have noticed some astonishing numbers this year that show there is increased value in taking them on the moneyline.  

It's been a good year for underdogs this season overall with a 56 percent win rate against the spread (57-45-5 ATS) but it's the ‘live dog’ numbers that are incredible.

Windy City Odds Special: Can Cubs, Hawks and Bears all Win?

Can the other teams in the Windy City catch a contact buzz off the high the Chicago Cubs are riding right now? If you answered yes to that question, then I have just the bet for you.

Bovada is currently offering a line for the Cubs, Blackhawks and Bears to all win at home this weekend. The +1000 odds for this to happen would be extremely attractive if this bet didn’t require the Bears to win in order to cash it.
