A couple of 1st place teams get together when the Phillies and Cubs kick off their three game series on Monday. Familiar faces come home in this one as former Cub Jake Arrieta returns to Wrigley Field.
Jake Arrieta will face the Cubs for the 1st time in his career. He spent 5 years with Chicago, guiding them to the 2016 World Series while also snagging the 2015 Cy Young Award.
The Phillies have good value on Monday as underdogs with Arrieta on the hill for the first time this season. That being said, he has struggled a bit as of late, allowing 4+ ER in 3 of the last 4 starts.
Philadelphia comes into Chicago hot as well, having swept Colorado over the weekend. They had dropped 3 of 4 to Milwaukee prior to that and go on the road where they are 9-9 on the season.
Chicago took 2 of 3 in Washington over the weekend and return back to Wrigley where they are 15-6 on the season. Only Jason Heyward (6-18) and Daniel Descalso (0-10) have ever faced Arrieta.
One of the more interesting matchups of the night is Kris Bryant vs. Arrieta. The Cubs third basemen hit three HR’s and two doubles on Friday vs. Washington and is locked in with 9 hits in 26 AB.
Yu Darvish is up in the rotation for Chicago, looking to build on some strong performances lately. He has allowed 2ER or less in 3 of the last 4 starts and struck out 11 Reds batters in his last start.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Phillies are 1-4 in Arrieta’s last 5 road starts
- Phillies are 5-2 last 7 vs. RH starter
- Cubs are 22-8 last 30 overall
- Phillies are 1-5 last 6 in Chicago
