(MLB) Colorado vs. Chi Cubs, 04/02/2024 7:40 PM, Score: 2 - 12
Point Spread: -1.50 | 115.00 Chi Cubs (Home)
Result: Win
The Colorado Rockies are in Chi-town to take on the Chicago Cubs. The Rockies lost game one, 5-0 to the Cubs and now have lost four of their last five. Colorado has averaged just 2.8 runs per game. They will look to turn things around by sending Kyle Freeland to the mound. His first start did not go very well asn he gave up 10 runs on 10 hits in 2.1 innings. The Cubs have won two in a row and are now 2-2 to start the season. Javier Assad makes his first start for the Cubs. Last season he made 10 starts in 32 appearances with a 3.05 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, and 7.7 K/9 rate in 109.1 innings. Freeland did not fare well in his first start. He should have a better outing but he has not pitched well against the Cubs in his career. He is 1-3 in five starts against the Cubs and gave up eight runs in his last two starts against them. Run-lines on home teams are taking a little chance but I like the Cubs offense to do damage early in this one. The Rockies have struggled this season, scoring less than four runs per game.

Play on Chicago. Minus 1.5 runs. This is a 3% play.
