Free MLB Picks Analysis: Marlins right-hander Henderson Alvarez (7-5 2.62) quietly is one of the hottest starters in the N.L. and he will bring the Cubbies impressive winning streak to an end. Chicago will trot out gifted but inconsistent righty Jake Arrieta (1-1 3.00). Arrieta has not given up many runs in his 30.0 innings of work but his last few outings have been a little rocky. Alvarez is a flame thrower (93-97 MPH) and a Cubs lineup that has overachieved lately will come down to their reality of being one of the worst offenses in baseball. Miami Marlins vs Chicago Cubs Betting Odds Total is at 7.5 Runs
Arrieta will be facing a Miami lineup that owns the best hitter in baseball in Giancarlo Stanton (.305 17 HR’s 53 R.B.I.). Stanton will have protection in the lineup with a hot bat in #3 hitter Garrett Jones. The big first-baseman Jones (6’4″ 230 Lbs.) has hammered Arrieta in the past and is swinging the stick well hitting .500 over his last three games with a dinger. Bet the Marlins to spoil the Cubs fans Sunday at the park with young stars Giancarlo Stanton and Henderson Alvarez leading the way.
