Chicago is 5-15 in their last 20 games and 5-17 in their last 22 Friday games. The over is 4-1-2 in Chicago’s last 7 games. Arizona is 6-2 in their last 8 home games and 7-25 in their last 32 Friday games. The under is 8-2-1 in Arizona’s last 11 home games. The Cubs are 6-2 in these two teams last 8 head to head meetings.

Arizona has started the season playing well and is over .500 in the very competitive NL West. Chicago has not played as well and is sitting 8 games below .500. This pitching matchup is pretty even in regards to stats this year, but I give the edge to Davies. The Diamondbacks have also played well at home lately and I like them to win.
