Free Chicago Cubs vs San Francisco Giants MLB Prediction:
Chicago entered this series rolling but were rolled over in game 1 by a score of 7-2. San Francisco continues to grow their MLB best record to 35-21 thanks to their impressive 16-8 record at home.
Jake Arrieta takes the mound for the Cubs and he continues to stay on the decline since his 2015 Cy Young, he’s just 5-5 on the year with a 4.41 ERA. The Giants are still undecided on who’ll they send out to match him.
Nonetheless, I’m taking San Fran and they’re offense to carry this team to another win in game 2.
