The Cubs are playing well enough to deserve a look in the underdog role. However, there is no betting against Jacob deGrom with the way he’s pitched this season. deGrom is having one of the best seasons in baseball history, allowing four earned runs in 64 innings while striking out 103 and allowing a .121 batting average. deGrom is nearly a lock to win the NL CY Young and it’s only the middle of June. Give me the Mets and the RL to max betting value.
