Cubs Love Going OVER Totals in the Bay Area

The San Francisco Giants have been playing spoiler for quite some time in the midst of a forgettable season and will look to slow down the NL Central-leading Chicago Cubs on Monday. Sportsbooks opened the Giants as +174 home underdogs with a total of 8.

Shark Bites
  • The Cubs are 16-5 SU in their last 21 games after a loss.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 11 of the Cubs’ last 14 games as road favorites.
  • The Giants are 1-6 SU in their last seven games at home with Matt Moore as the starting pitcher.

Jake Arrieta and Matt Moore will get the start for the Cubbies and Giants, respectively. Arrieta (10-8, 3.88 ERA) has notched four straight quality starts to begin the second half of the season but took the loss against Arizona his last time out when he limited the D-backs to two runs over seven innings while striking out eight batters. The hurler is 4-2 with a 1.82 ERA in six career starts against the Giants, including a 3-1 record and 2.08 ERA in four trips to AT&T Park.

Moore (3-11, 5.80) is winless in his last seven starts since June 20 and has posted only two quality starts in that stretch. The 28-year-old faced the Cubs for the first time in late May and gave up four runs (three earned) over six innings of work in a 5-4 setback.

OVER bettors are profiting in a big way when the Cubs travel to the Bay Area. In Chicago’s last six in San Fran, the OVER is 5-1.
