Betting Chicago (NL) as the underdogs

The Chicago Cubs and San Francisco Giants will begin a four-game series at 9:45 p.m. ET. Zach Davies will be on the mound for the Cubs, while the Giants will turn the ball over to Anthony DeSclafani. We’ll go over some ideal picks on DraftKings Sportsbook centered around the game here.

Cubs vs. Giants, 10:00 p.m. ET

Moneyline pick: Giants -124

The Cubs have vaulted to the top of the NL Central and are coming off an impressive three game sweep against the San Diego earlier this week at Wrigley Field. However, it might be tough for them to win their fourth straight contest on Thursday night. Their starting pitcher Zach Davies has not been a great pitcher on the road with a 6.41 ERA and .333 opponents batting average. However, his saving grace might be that he had an impressive May with a 1.72 ERA in six starts.

Meanwhile, the Giants will be running out DeSclafani, who has allowed a home run in three consecutive games. The veteran pitcher does have a record of 4-2 and 3.56 ERA, but when he pitches at home his ERA is 5.09 in four starts. Between the two teams, San Fran has been better at home than the Cubbies on the road. Take the Giants at a nice price of -124 odds.

Player Prop: TBD player props for neither team have been posted yet.
