Tonight’s ESPN game should be a good one. However, there is rain in the forecast and that could become a problem so before placing any bets be sure to check the weather forecast.  At first glance, many people might think this is an easy win for the Cubs. That could not be farther from the truth with the emergence of Marlins pitcher Caleb Smith (3-0 2.00 ERA) who is projected to start. So far Smith (currently in his third year) looks like he will become a household name by the end of this season. This year he has shut down the Phillies twice and the Braves once. He has pitched six innings in five of six starts and has had at least seven strikeouts in all of them. Only allowing a .172 batting average to righties and a .152 average to lefties the Cubs will have to work for this victory on the batting side.

The Cubs are projected to start veteran Jon Lester (2-1 1.73 ERA). Lester is coming off of a great start against the Mariners pitching seven scoreless inning and striking out eight. Excluding this dominant performance, his year has been consistent but not great. However, he will be receiving a boost in this match-up and that is the fact that he is facing this terrible Marlins lineup. They are the 4th worst team (in the MLB) in terms of batting average at .221 and only have 23 home runs which is the worst in the league. The Marlins will probably jam as many righties in their lineup as possible but Lester has been pitching well against them only allowing a .174 average against righties. The Cubs are also 10-4 at home.
