Cubs vs Diamondbacks Prediction 

Chicago came in and stole game one from Arizona, but with a rusty Kyle Hendricks set to open for the visitors in this one, the hosts may be primed from some revenge here in the second leg. The Cubs haven’t exactly impressed at the plate despite their recent stretch of play, and if the D’Backs come alive on offense, they’ll be able to take game two. Arizona’s last two series have seen them drop the first contest, but recover for series victories, so let’s back them for game two this Tuesday.
