The Chicago Cubs lost for the seventh time in eight games as they suffered a 4-2 defeat at Milwaukee on Sunday. I think they look like a good fade again here when hosting the Pittsburgh Pirates for their home opener Monday afternoon.

The Bucs are coming off a four-game sweep of the Cincinnati Reds and will hand the ball to right-hander Jameson Taillon (0-1, 3.46 ERA) who is 4-3 with a 3.88 ERA in eight career starts against the Cubs. He’s had good success at Wrigley Field where he owns a 2.50 ERA in three outings. The Pirates are 10-4 in Taillon’s last 14 road starts.

The Cubs hand the ball to left-hander Jon Lester (1-0, 3.00 ERA) who has held opponents to two runs in six innings in both starts this season, but note that the Cubs’ bullpen ranks dead last in the major leagues with a 7.51 ERA on the season.

All in all, this is a good enough price to back the visitors.
