Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Chicago Cubs MLB Prediction:
The Cubs need to start playing better baseball. They have a good chance to do so when they face off against this Diamondbacks squad.
Chicago is the better team and they have done a good job against Arizona so far this year. I look for that to continue.
Zach Davies should be able to be effective in this one. I also think the Cubs can hit around Zac Gallen.
I will lay the -125 with the Cubs here.
