Free Pick Wednesday Phillies at Cubs

Phillies at Cubs 5:05 pacific

Cubs SP Drew Smyly’s shut out performance over 5 innings vs the Pirates 10 days ago is not what it seems. He gave up many walks and got lucky to get out of multiple bases-loaded jams. If Phillies batters begin to get on base early, I believe it will be a difficult outing for Smyly at Wrigley tonight. Over the past 30 days, Cubs hitters are striking out in 25% of their at bats – they are also hitting for a combined .226 batting average. Phillies starter Aaron Nola will not need his best tonight as long as he keeps the ball down and avoids his occasional gopheritis.

Bet Phillies +125 (-1.5)
