2015 Free MLB Picks & Expert MLB Predictions – St Louis Cardinals @ Chicago Cubs 4/7/15: The St Louis Cardinals and Chicago Cubs resume their 2015 MLB opening series at Wrigley Field on Tuesday and the odds makers at Bovada Sportsbook have the Chicago Cubs listed as -125 money line favorites to take game 2 of the series. The Cardinals opened up the 2015 MLB season Sunday night with a 3-0 win over the Cubs behind the superb pitching of Adam Wainwright to ruin the Cubs debut of starting left handed pitcher Jon Lester and manager Joe Maddon.
St Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny will send out right hander Lance Lynn to the hill on Tuesday night at Wrigley Field. The 27 year-old native of Indianapolis, IN went 15-10 overall with a 2.74 ERA last season for the Cardinals as he allowed just 185 hits in 203.2 innings pitched. The 6-5, 240 pounder had 181 strikeouts and 72 bases on balls in 33 games started last season. Lynn only faced the Cubs one time last season and allowed 2 earned runs on 3 hits in 6 innings but did not factor in the decision or the Cardinals 5-4 win on May 4th in Chicago.
Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon will send out right hander Jake Arrieta to toe the rubber Tuesday night in hopes of evening of the series against St Louis. The 29 year-old native of Farmington, MO went 10-5 with a 2.53 ERA last season for the Cubs in 25 games started. The 6-4, 225 pounder was very impressive in allowing just 114 hits in 156.2 innings pitched last year for the Cubs and had 167 strikeouts to go against just 41 walks. The 156.2 innings pitched was the most he pitched in his career thus far. Arrieta faced the Cardinals four times last season and allowed just 3 earned runs in 22 1/3 innings pitched.
We are going to put our cash down on the Cubs Tuesday night with Arrieta on the mound as he has always been tough on St Louis and is coming off of a career year. Big things are expected from the Cubs this season and they did not get off on the right foot Sunday night with a disappointing shutout loss to kick off the Lester and Maddon era in the windy city, but we feel they will regroup nicely and bounce back with a big win on Tuesday. Take the Cubs at -125 on the money line with Arrieta and Lynn as the listed pitchers on your bet. Good luck.
