Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Chicago Cubs

MLB Baseball: Saturday, April 20th 2019 2:20 PM EST TIME

The Arizona Diamondbacks are looking to keep their winning streak going as they head into Chicago for another new series. As for the Cubs, they too are looking to keep their winning ways alive.

Diamondback Notes

The Arizona Diamondbacks might of started off the season with a series loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers, but have since turned the corner and have climbed over .500 for the season. They enter this game with an overall record of 10-9 and third in the NL West. To keep pace in this tough division, the Diamondbacks are going to need to keep their winning ways going as they put their four-game winning streak on the line in this new series. For the Diamondbacks, they will be sending out ace Zack Greinke.

  1. Wilmer Flores (R) 2B
  2. Eduardo Escobar (S) 3B
  3. David Peralta (L) LF
  4. Adam Jones (R) RF
  5. Christian Walker (R) 1B
  6. Ketel Marte (S) CF
  7. Nick Ahmed (R) SS
  8. Caleb Joseph (R) C
  9. Zack Greinke (R) P

For Greinke, he is looking for his third straight win as he is coming off back to back great performances. He comes into this contest after a seven-inning performance in a win over San Diego where he only allowed two runs on four hits over seven, striking out six while walking one.

Cubs Notes

As for the Chicago Cubs, they are looking to extend their winning streak as well as they bring in a three-game winning streak in on Saturday. The Cubs are off a successful sweep against the Miami Marlins as they seem to be finding their groove once again. Earlier in the season, the Cubs were dreadful riding a six-game losing streak as this series with the Diamondbacks can push them back over the .500 winning percentage hump.

  1. Daniel Descalso (L) 2B
  2. Kris Bryant (R) RF
  3. Anthony Rizzo (L) 1B
  4. Javier Baez (R) SS
  5. Willson Contreras (R) C
  6. Jason Heyward (L) CF
  7. David Bote (R) 3B
  8. Kyle Schwarber (L) LF
  9. Yu Darvish (R) P
For the Chicago Cubs, they are one man short on their rotation as Jon Lester is still dealing with an injury. With that being said, the Cubs will send out Yu Darvish one day earlier as he pitched in Monday’s win vs. the Marlins. He struck out 8 and allowed 2 runs over 5 2/3 innings.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Leaning with the Chicago Cubs here. They come into this game after easily taking care of the Marlins and send out Darvish who has been hitting near 95mph on his pitches. With that being said the Diamondbacks are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings. Take the Cubs.

Prediction: CUBS ML

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

In the past six games in which the Cubs have won, the Under has hit in five of those. Chicago has been getting it done with the pitching and I do not see a different story here. The Under is 5-1 in Cubs last 6 home games vs. a team with a winning record as well as 4-1 in Cubs last 5 vs. a team with a winning record.

Prediction: UNDER
