Oakland A’s Fantasy Spin

Stephen Piscotty had a three-run homer and an RBI single in Tuesday's rout of the Cubs. Piscotty's homer was his first in four games since he returned from the injured list. He came into the night with a disappointing .697 OPS, but the A's haven't seemed to give much thought to sending him to the bench at any point. He's still a decent bet as a fifth outfielder in mixed leagues the rest of the way.

Chicago Cubs Fantasy Spin

Kris Bryant went 2-for-5 and hit a two-run homer Tuesday against the A's. The homer came with the Cubs down 11-0, so it's not going on the highlight reels. Still, it broke Bryant out a drought that had seen him go nine straight games without an extra-base hit or an RBI. He has 22 homers this season.

MLB Betting Trends

Oakland

The A’s are 4-1 in their last five games overall and 9-1 in their last 10 games when playing the third game of a series.

Chicago

The Cubs have won 12 of their last 15 games played on Wednesday.

Prediction:

The Cubs have been profitable when Jose Quintana starts, winning six straight outings and 24 of his last 34 starts at Wrigley Field. They’re also 20-9 in their last 29 games versus American League West opponents and have won 37 of their last 52 at home when facing a right-handed starter.

The Pick: Chicago Cubs -145
