The Cubs and the New York Mets battle it out in the second game of their series from New York. All odds for all games can be found at Bovada sportsbook.
While the Cubs have struggled pretty much all season they played well earlier in the year and yesterday vs. the Mets. They won yesterday 8-7 and have now won 8 of 11 overall. They were led by some ninth inning dramatics yesterday and Jeff Samardzjia will look to keep the Cubs rolling today. Samardzjia is looking for consecutive wins coming off of a win versus the Braves in his last start.
The Mets are currently in second place in the National League East and have been hot and cold so far this season. Their bats were not the problem on Friday, but the pitching staff let them down in a big way. They will look to right the ship tonight behind Dillon Gee who has lost four of his last five starts. Keep in mind however that Gee has thrown some quality outings in those four losses.
For some reason although the Cubs are dreadful they have the Mets number right now. Take the Cubs as a moneyline underdogs as they have the edge in the starting pitching matchup this afternoon sportsbook.
