Miami is 4-9 in their last 13 Sunday games and 1-5 in their last 6 game three’s of a series. The under is 5-2-1 in Miami’s last 8 Sunday games. Chicago is 4-1 in their last 5 home games and 6-18 in their last 24 Sunday games. The over is 5-2 in Chicago’s last 7 Sunday games. The under is 6-0 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings in Chicago.


Chicago comes into this game looking for the sweep against a Miami team that has really struggled offensively over the last five games. Miami will have Sandy Alcantara on the mound, who has allowed three earned runs or fewer in three straight starts. Chicago will start Hayden Wesneski, who has allowed one earned run or fewer in three of his last four starts. I like the Cubs in this game, as I trust their offense a lot more than Miami’s.
