Philadelphia has dipped below .500 but are still showing well on the season overall. Chicago too has been more mortal over the last few weeks. Both of these results were to be expected.
The only chance the Phillies have is for their young pitching to shine in this series. Offensively they do not have nearly as much to turn to as the Cubbies.
The offense has dipped to second in the Majors but there is still more than enough punch to support the league’s best pitching staff.
Ben Zobrist is proving to be one of the best free agent acquisitions in the league, leading the team in hitting while tracking to have his best season at the dish of his career.
His consistency is critical in a lineup that is still very young throughout.
Kyle Hendricks continues to put up solid numbers at the back of the Cubs rotation.
His last two outings have been his longest of the season including a complete game against these same Phillies in which he gave up just one earned run.
His splits show that he is far more effective at home so this might be a spot to fade him even against this weak lineup he so recently dominated.
The Phillies seem to have hit a bit of a wall.
They lost seven in a row as their offense really hit a dry spell. not scoring more than 3 runs once over that run. That type of performance is likely to continue as even their best hitters are far from established.
Not surprisingly there has been money to be made by taking the under with Philadelphia this season and that is likely to continue to be the case based on their bad offense alone.
Jerad Eickhoff is tied for the Major League lead in losses with 8.
That makes it tough to vouch for him but his peripherals are pretty strong and his ERA is a full run better than that of Matt Harvey, the guy he is tied with. He is 2-8 and in his both of his wins he has shutout the competition.
That is going to be a tall order against Chicago.

Free Chicago Cubs vs. Philadelphia Phillies MLB Prediction:
Fading the Cubs is a tough call this season. Hendricks has been both consistent and good so even though he might be the weak link it is hard to target him in a situation like this. Plus he won’t have to be great to get the team a W.
Philadelphia has given back some value over the last couple of weeks but they are still up in the season. I am not pinning it on Eickhoff but if you were backing everyone but him you would be feeling pretty good right now.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Take the Cubs on the Runline.
The Cubs offense may be slowing down some but they should be able to put enough on the board to make you feel comfortable with backing them on the RL in this contest.
