The Cubbies are in great shape but a series loss will crank up the heat. They are pretty healthy right no but Jason Heyward is out. Javier Baez is having a monster season with 30 homers and 100 RBI already making up for subpar performances throughout the lineup.
Cole Hamels has really enjoyed returning to the National League. Through seven starts he is a perfect 4-0 with an ERA of 1.00. The Cubs have only lost one of those and it was in his last outing. I have always been a fan and the Cubbies have nice depth in their bullpen.
The season is officially lost so now the talk around the Nats is about whether they keep their manager. I wouldn’t but the fact that there is talk does not bode well for a team that is going to be maxing out from here to the end of the season.
The exception to that is Max Scherzer. He has won back to back Cy Young awards and even though he probably won’t this season, his numbers are tracking to be better than either of the last two seasons. If he is gunning for a third he has to keep it up and he can.

This is an interesting one because betting against Scherzer is never advised but Hamels is red hot.

As hard as it is you have to go with the value play here and hope for the best. I am not fading Scherzer, just saying it is hard to ignore Hamels/Cubs at that price.
