The Cubs will give the nod to Jose Quintana for game two of this three game series, as the Cubs need some wins in a real bad way. Quintana looked brilliant in his last outing, striking out 11 Pirates, while giving up only four hits and one walk in 7 innings of scoreless baseball. The Cubs need that kind of output again here on Tuesday night.
Despite sitting in the cellar of the NL Central, the Cubs have scored the most runs out of any team in the division by 8 runs, and are averaging 6.14 runs per game on the year. Defensively they are giving up 5.92 runs per game and are the only last place team in all of baseball that has a + run differential.
Miami will look to Pablo Lopez to toe the rubber on Tuesday night. Lopez has looked downright unhittable in each of his first three starts, in the first and second innings only. He still is yet to give up a run in the opening two frames, but once the second time through the lineup comes around, he really struggles, having given up 7 runs in the 3rd and 4th innings through his first three starts.
Miami is still the worst offensive team in the league, but they did explode for 10 runs over the weekend against the Phillies. That was uncharacteristic of this team, seeing as they have only scored 46 runs on the year, and are averaging only 2.87 runs per game. It gets worse on defense, as they sit at -34 in run differential, and are giving up an average of 5 runs per game.

Free Chicago Cubs vs. Miami Marlins MLB Prediction:
With both teams sending out pitchers with +5.00 ERAs, this game could be a high scoring affair, but then you have to take in the fact that one of these teams is Miami.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER the Number
Take the Cubs to win this game on the road, and for the score to be UNDER the number. I think we will see the same Jose Quintana that we saw last week, and he should be able to keep these Marlins bats fairly quiet.
