Phillies vs Cubs preview
As mentioned in our betting preview, Kyle Gibson takes the mound tonight against Justin Steele. Both pitchers give up pretty hefty ERA’s and this game could be headed for an offensive explosion.
Gibson holds a 4.35 ERA, but in ten innings against the Cubs, has given up six runs. As for Steele, he’s looked much better as of late, but thus Phillies team ranks 6th in total runs scored and rank inside the top-12 in batting average. If there is ever a game to target a young pitcher, this is the one.
The Cubs are 1-9 in their last ten and have struggled to put up runs so will be looking for a slightly easier day at the office here.
The run total is set at 9 and the Phils are slight favorites. I would be inclined to parlay both and take the Phils and the over here.
