The Chicago Cubs have had a rough season. They’ve gone 3-7 in their last 10 games and are coming off yet another loss. The Diamondbacks have found a groove and are a few games over .500, which is one of the more surprising things to happen this season. Arizona already has a win in this series. Can it win again at home?

Cubs vs. Diamondbacks Prediction and Pick

The Diamondbacks are favored in this game, and I understand that. However, the play to make today is on the run line. The Cubs have covered in their last four games and have even stolen two games. Arizona only won by one run in the series opener. If Kyle Hendricks can have a decent performance, the Cubs are live to even this series up. 

The Cubs are 9-5 against the run line as a road underdog. This is a common, and comfortable spot for them. 

Zac Gallen has been great for Arizona this season, but I’ll back the Cubs to keep it close tonight. 

Lean: Cubs +1.5 (-160)
