MLB Betting Trends
The Cubs are 6-1 in their last seven road games. Chicago is 1-5 in the last six Darvish road starts.
The Brewers are 4-0 in their last four Saturday games. Milwaukee is 15-6 in the last 21 Gonzalez starts.
Darvish has had a couple blips, but overall he's been very solid the last couple months. I'm banking on that continuing here as the Cubs could use a strong start after yesterday. Chicago has a few hitters from the right side who could pose problems for Gonzalez and I'm going to bank the Cubs jumping ahead early with Darvish doing the rest.
