Shane’s Free Pick
Luzardo has been good to start the season for the Marlins, but he has to go against a very good Cubs offense. The Cubs are also going to get a good start from Stroman and that is going to be the difference here. The Marlins are going to struggle to even score two runs here. Back the Cubs on the money line.
