MLB Baseball Gambling Total:
The Miami Marlins will welcome in the Chicago Cubs this Friday for the first game of their series this Friday, and with the form the Cubs are in, the Marlins are probably looking forward to this one.
The Cubs have lost their last 8 games and there looks like there is no end in sight, as they absolutely cleaned house at the trade deadline, and they are not going to be favorites in many games down the stretch.
This Chicago team basically has no offensive talent left, and they will end up being an A+ matchup for their opponents and even though this offense ranks 19th in the league it will almost certainly be nowhere close to that by the time the end of September gets here.
Chicago will roll with Adbert Alzolay here and he has an ERA closing in on 5, but he was great last time out against the Chicago White Sox as he was able to go 6.2 innings and he only gave up 2 earned runs and a repeat of that performance would put the Cubs in a great position to win this one.
The Marlins snapped their 5 game losing streak against the Padres last time out picking up a win by a score of 7-0 and although there are no real playoff implications that will do this team a world of good coming into this series.
Miami still has a solid batting lineup, as this team is hitting .237 which is 18th overall in baseball and they have had some nice standout players like Adam Duvall and Jesus Aguilar who will be key pieces going into next year.
Jesus Luzardo gets the opportunity to perform in his hometown in this one after begin traded to the Marlins, and he will be hoping a change of scenery does him some good, as he still has an ERA in the range of 7.

Free Chicago Cubs vs. Miami Marlins MLB Prediction:
This is a great spot for Jesus Luzardo, as there are basically no bats left on the Cubs and he gets to pitch this one at home which should help. The Marlins have the far better batting lineup and it is not like Adbert Alzolay is an elite pitcher who will run through this Marlins batting lineup, so I can see the Marlins getting into this Cubs bullpen and that will be good news for them as this Cubs bullpen will likely not perform down the stretch.
