Cardinals @ Cubs: Predictions, picks and bets


September 6, 2020 4:18 PM

The MLB grind can take its toll, and for the St Louis Cardinals, in a season interrupted by a Covid outbreak among their club, they are finding the annual grind a little bit different than usual.

With a large number of doubleheaders required for them to play catch up, the Cardinals managed to win both games of their doubleheader against the Chicago Cubs yesterday. They’ll be looking to keep it rolling again today.

Run line: u13 runs (-110*) has a 60% probability

A very interesting one that this line has been set so high. So far the under has prevailed in each of the matches between the two teams this weekend, and the listed pitchers for both sides have a respectable ERA. Unless there’s something we’re missing, the DimersBOT selection of taking the under is an overwhelming best play for this game.

Cubs H2H (-110*) has a 52% probability

The sportsbooks can’t split these two teams today with even odds at the moneyline. St Louis lose their originally listed starting pitcher Kwang Hyun Kim who was admitted to hospital in Chicago this weekend with a Kidney issue. Taking his place on the mound will be Dakota Hudson who is sporting a 1-2 record on the season. Take the Cubs at the moneyline on this.

Run line
Cubs +1.5 (-160*) has a 64% probability

We like the Cubs today in what appears to be an even game, so Chicago at the run line is a natural choice here. This is one for your parlays - get up to 40% winnings boost with BetMGM when you opt-in and place a 4+ leg parlay on any combination of sports or events.

Dimers' take-out

This game could go down to the wire and be settled in the final at-bat of the game. One thing is for sure, though, the under looks like a great play. Want to place a wager on this game but not sure where to start? Find the best online sportsbooks here
