The Chicago Cubs are 4-4 this season and have lost three of their last four games. Chicago has dropped two of three so far in the series against the Rockies. The Chicago pitching staff has a 4.30 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, and a .251 opponent batting average this season. The Cubs offense has scored 38 runs with a .274 batting average and a .358 on base percentage. Seiya Suzuki has a .409 batting average and 10 RBI’s this season for the Cubs. The projected starter for Chicago is Drew Smyly, who is 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 0.60 WHIP across 5 innings pitched.
The Colorado Rockies are 6-2 this season and have won two games in a row. Colorado has won two of three so far in the series against the Cubs, including a 9-6 win on Saturday. The Colorado pitching staff has a 3.45 ERA, 1.34 WHIP, and a .265 opponent batting average. The Rockies offense has scored 42 runs with a .282 batting average and a .348 on base percentage this year. Elias Diaz has led the Rockies with a .360 batting average and one home run on the season. The projected starter for Colorado is Austin Gomber, who is 0-0 with a 5.79 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP over 4.2 innings pitched.
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.
