Rockies Continue to Disappoint

Getting the start for the Rockies will be Ty Blach who sits with a 3-2 record and an ERA of 5.32.
Cubs Going For Series Sweep

The Cubs are averaging 5.08 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.48 runs per game. The Cubs offense hasn’t been given enough credit for how good they have been this season.

Shane’s Free Pick
The Rockies are going to have major issues getting the offense going again here. Wicks sits with an ERA of 2.67 and he’s going to lockdown here. The Rockies have scored only three total runs in this series and they are going to finish with less than that here. This is going to be a very easy victory for the Cubs. Back the Cubs -1.5 to cash here.
