It’s been a good start to the 2018 campaign for both teams. The Cubs (40-27, +1.44 betting units) and the Cardinals (36-32, minus-4.20 betting units) have been playing well as of late.
They find themselves trailing the Milwaukee Brewers for first place in the National League Central. The Cubs are 0.5 games back and the Cards are 5 games out.
The Cubs have the best hitting in baseball thus far. Their pitching has been substandard for a team of their caliber. St. Louis is less polarized as they have decent results on both sides of the equation.
Quintana has definitely gotten by with a little help from his friends. The North Siders are 9-4 in his 13 starts for 1.97 units in profit. Thos numbers are inflated because they’ve given him 6.31 runs of support per game. The Cards, on the other hand, are 4-4 behind Flaherty for a loss of 1.20 units. They are providing just 4.25 runs per game and driving the Under to a 5-2-1 record.
