The Chicago Cubs look for a win after losing four of their last six games. The Cubs have scored six runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The Cubs have won four of their last five games when scoring more than three runs. Anthony Rizzo leads Chicago with 92 hits and 48 RBI while Starlin Castro and Kris Bryant have combined for 88 RBI. The Chicago Cubs have lost six of their last 10 home games. Jake Arrieta takes the hill, and he’s 9-5 with a 2.80 ERA and 114 strikeouts this season. Arrieta is 1-1 with a 5.49 ERA and 12 strikeouts in his career against the White Sox.
The White Sox are 2-5 in their last 7 during game 3 of a series and 2-5 in Quintanas last 7 road starts. The Cubs are 5-1 in their last 6 Sunday games and 5-2 in Arrietas last 7 starts. The White Sox are 6-2 in the last 8 meetings in Chicago.
I've made some nice money the last two games backing the White Sox as underdogs. Why not try and get greedy for the sweep? Besides, Arrieta has won just two of his last seven home starts.
