Atlanta vs Chicago: Braves And Cubs Clash at Wrigley Field

Atlanta vs Chicago: Braves And Cubs Clash at Wrigley Field

Chicago Cubs: In the thick of the MLB Playoff race

Although they have stumbled some, with three straight loses, few teams have been hotter than Chicago recently. Prior to the mini skid, the Ciubs went on a 15-1 run and their 67-51 record has Chicago three games up on San Francisco in the race for the final Wild Card berth. One has to feel for the Cubs as they are hooked into the NL Central Division that also features St. Louis (77-43) and Pittsburgh (71-47) and they trail the Cardinals and Pirates by nine and four games respectively in the race for first. The Cubs would be comfortably in first place in four of the other six Major League Baseball divisions.

Atlanta Braves: Competitive early season start is now a distant memory

Competitive early in the season, Atlanta was 25-25 and three games out of first at the end of May, the Braves have crashed as they are 53-67 and now sit eleven games behind the New York Mets in the NL East. The Tribe are also 15 games out of an NL Wild Card spot. Atlanta has been brutal as they are 9-20 since returning from the All-Star break. The Braves have issues across the board as they their 441 runs scored is the second lowest total in the league while their 529 runs allowed is the 21st worst mark in the Majors. Outscored by a 17-5 margin - Atlanta just lost three straight games in San Diego

Braves vs Cubs MLB Call: Chicago has the pitching advantage in this contest as RHP Jake Arrieta (14-6 ERA 2.39) faces Mike Foltynewicz (4-4 ERA 5.61) in the rumble on the rubber. Arrieta has been a big part of the Cubs winning ways as he has allowed twelve runs over his last nine starts and Chicago has won eight of those contests. Foltynewicz has struggled recently as he has given up 14 runs, over just 16.1 innings pitched, during his three starts in August. Load up and prosper with the Cubs and a 1000 unit wager on the money lines odds posted at the Sportsbook.ag online wagering website.
