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.
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.

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.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.
Full-Game Side Bet
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
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.
