Cubbies are Teeing Off Against Righties on the Road

The Chicago Cubs haven’t enjoyed their trip to the West Coast but they can salvage a split of the six-game stretch with a win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday. Sportsbooks opened the Cubbies as -111 road favorites with a total of 9.

Shark Bites
  • The Diamondbacks are 4-0 in Zack Godley’s last four starts.
  • The UNDER is 6-1 in Godley’s last seven starts.
  • The Cubs are 10-1 in their last 11 road games vs a right-handed starter.

Jake Arrieta and Zack Godley are slated to get the start for the Cubs and D-backs, respectively. Arrieta (11-8, 3.83 ERA) experienced a bumpy first half of the season but is starting to round into form now, going 3-1 with a 2.20 ERA in five starts since the all-star break. The hurler is 2-3 with a 2.95 ERA in six career starts against Arizona.

Godley (5-4, 2.94) has been profitable for Diamondbacks bettors, as Arizona is 11-5 with him on the mound this season. The 27-year-old is 1-1 with a 5.59 ERA in two career starts vs the Cubs.

The UNDER is trending when Godley gets the ball. In the pitcher’s last seven, the UNDER is 6-1.
