Pittsburgh is 6-2 in their last 8 game 4’s of a series and 4-10 in their last 14 Sunday games. The under is 4-2-2 in Pittsburgh’s last 8 games. Chicago is 5-11 in their last 16 Sunday games and 2-4 in their last 6 games overall. The over is 10-2 in Chicago’s last 12 games as a home favorite. Pittsburgh is 4-12 in these two teams last 16 head to head meetings. The over is 7-2 in these two teams last 9 meetings in Chicago.

The Pirates are licking their wounds after the Cubs absolutely obliterated them on Saturday afternoon. The Pirates are going to try and bounce back with Brubaker, who has not been good to start this season. The Cubs are going with Steele, who only lasted 2.2 innings in his last outing. I like the Cubs at home here by 1.5.
