MLB Betting Trends

Chicago Cubs

The Cubs are 4-2 in their last six interleague games. The Cubs are 5-1 in the last six Hendricks Sunday starts. 

Chicago White Sox 

The White Sox are 1-4 in their last five interleague home games. The White Sox are 1-4 in the last five meetings.


The Cubs took game one against an All-Star level pitcher and now have a chance to feast on Nova. With Hendricks a very consistent pitcher, I love the Cubs' chances here. Look for the better team to notch another victory this afternoon.
