D-backs are Red-Hot to the OVER

The Arizona Diamondbacks just can’t seem to solve the Chicago Cubs, but they’ll have another crack at the North Siders on Friday. The Cubs have been fantastic at Wrigley Field all year long, going 20-7 in the Windy City.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in four of the Cubs' last five games during the afternoon.
  • The Diamondbacks are 1-12 SU in their last 13 games as a moneyline underdog of +190 or more.
  • The Cubs are 6-0 SU in their last six games on Friday.

The Diamondbacks have dropped six of their last seven against the Cubbies. While the D-backs haven’t been much of a reliable moneyline play, they have been fantastic when it comes to going above totals. The OVER is a sizzling 12-1 in Arizona’s last 13 games.

Archie Bradley and John Lackey are scheduled to get the start for the Diamondbacks and the Cubs, respectively. Bradley (2-0, 6.11 ERA) is making his third stint with Arizona, but he’s been lights out in Triple-A ball. Lackey (5-2, 3.16) is coming off a terrific May, going 2-1 with a 2.09 ERA in six outings – all quality starts.
