Chicago Cubs          

The Cubs enter tonight’s matchup with a 14-12 record that ranks them as the 2nd best team in the NL Central. At the present time the St. Louis Cardinals lead the division and own a 3 game lead over Chicago. With this in mind, it’s clear that Chicago can take the NL Central with a decent win streak. Fortunately for the franchise, they enter tonight’s action riding a 2 game winning streak. So will Chicago be able to build on their success or will they falter on the road tonight? Considering that they’re starting Cole Hamels this evening, it’s looking like Chicago should come out on top.

After all, Hamels is 3-0 this season and sports a 3.16 ERA and a 0.99 WHIP. Opposite of Hamels will be Felix Hernandez, who is the Mariners’ starting pitcher this Tuesday. Hernandez brings a 1-2 record to the mound as well as a 3.91 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP.

Players to Watch: Javier Baez (9 HR, 22 RBI, .315 BA), Anthony Rizzo (5 HR, 16 RBI, .214 BA), and Kris Bryant (3 HR, 13 RBI, .229 BA).

Seattle Mariners   

The Mariners swim into tonight’s action flashing an 18-13 record that ranks them as the best team in the AL West. However, accounting for their previously mentioned rut, it’s clear Seattle needs to turn things around if they are to stay No. 1. Unfortunately for Seattle, they really haven’t had much luck against NL conference opponents as of late. In fact, Seattle is 0-7 in their last 7 against an NL team. With this in mind, it’s clear that betting against Seattle is the way to go this Tuesday night.

Players to Watch: Domingo Santana (6 HR, 30 RBI, .288 BA), Mitch Haniger (7 HR, 19 RBI, .250 BA), and Ryon Healy (5 HR, 21 RBI, .232 BA).
