There’s a surprising amount of money coming in on Chicago Monday as they host the 1st place Atlanta Braves. The line opened at the Cubs -115, but has jumped to -133.
There’s definitely value on the Braves (+111) in Monday’s tilt from Wrigley Field considering they’ve taken 4 of the last 5 vs. the Cubs. Atlanta won 2 out of 3 games in Washington over the weekend and have now been victors in 7 of their last 10 to build up a 6.5 game lead in the East.
Atlanta will be up against Jon Lester in the series opener which is the main reason Chicago is the favorite. Atlanta has plenty of familiarity against the veteran left-hander with 199 cumulative AB’s but only three Braves players are hitting better than .275 vs. Lester.
Atlanta will counter with a very solid pitcher of their own as Julio Teheran takes the hill. He allowed just 4ER total over an 8-start stretch before giving up 6ER on 8 hits to the Mets the last time out. Teheran has allowed just 3ER in his last 5 road starts however.
Chicago also sits in 1st place in their respective division, holding a 0.5 game lead over the Brewers. Chicago needed a 3-run HR in the 8th inning b Javy Baez to salvage a split with the Mets however in a weekend that included a 2-10 loss on Saturday.
Teheran held the Cubs to 1ER over 5 innings when the teams met up back on April 3rd. Overall Chicago batters have gone just 17-101 (.168) vs. the Atlanta starter. Baez is 1-9 with 5 K’s vs. Teheran.
Lester had an OK bounce-back performance the last time out leading the Cubs to a win over the White Sox but he still allowed 3ER in 5.2 IP. Lester allowed at least 4ER in 5 of 6 starts prior and is still a wild card on the mound.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Braves are 5-1 last 6 road games
- Braves are 16-5 last 21 overall
- Braves are 4-1 in Teheran’s last 5 starts
- Cubs are 1-4 last 5 Monday games
- Cubs are 5-1 in Lester’s last 6 starts vs. Braves
Free Atlanta Braves vs. Chicago Cubs MLB Prediction:
This total seems sky high at 11.5 for two solid pitchers on the mound but that’s what an expected 15 MPH wind blowing out to right at Wrigley will do to an O/U. Teheran has been much better at limiting the long ball which gives the Braves the edge in this one.
