Chicago is 1-6 in their last 7 game 4’s of a series. The under is 4-0 in Chicago’s last 4 road games against a left-handed starter. Colorado is 0-4 in Gomber’s last 4 starts against the NL Central. The under is 4-0 in Colorado’s last 4 games against a starter with a WHIP less than 1.15. The over is 3-1-1 in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings.

Drew Smyly had a surprisingly very good first start of the season, while Gomber was the exact opposite. Colorado has been playing very well and they are at home, but I like the total better. There are some nice trends showing that the under is the play here and that is what I am taking.
