Money Line: -155.00 Chi Cubs (Home)
The Cubs have won five of seven, while the Pirates are just 2-5. Game 2 in Pittsburgh looks like it could be a pitcher's duel, but the price indicates a value bet on the Cubs.
Tyler Chatwood will toe the slab for Chicago, and he was stellar in his season debut. He allowed one run on three hits while striking out eight in six innings in a win over the Brewers.
The Pirates hand the ball to Mitch Keller, who also looked sharp in his first start. He faced the Cubs twice last season, going 0-1 with a 6.75 ERA.
The Pirates are 1-7 in their last eight road games versus a right-handed starter.
