Giants vs. Cubs Betting Preview October 7, 2016

This is a Giants vs. Cubs Betting Preview for October 7. The San Francisco Giants will visit the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field for Game 1 of a National League Division Series Friday night. The Cubs earned their spot in the postseason by finishing with the best record in baseball while San Francisco wrapped up the regular season with four straight wins before knocking off the Mets with a three-run homer on the road in Wednesday’s NL wild card game.

San Francisco Giants vs. Chicago Cubs
Friday, October 07 – 9:00 PM EST
Wrigley Field, Chicago, Illinois
LINE: Giants +165 / Cubs -180; Total: 7

Line Movement

The Cubs opened as a -175 favorite and bettors who got their money in early must feel pretty good at seeing Cubs -181 as of the publication of this Giants vs. Cubs Betting Preview. There is no reverse line movement as 54 percent of the wagers have come in on the home team moving the line accordingly. The total is holding steady at 7 with a virtually equal amount of wagers on both sides.

Pitching Matchup

The Giants hand the ball to right-hander Johnny Cueto (18-5, 2.79 ERA) who is 9-8 with a 3.24 ERA in 24 career starts against the Cubs. That includes a 5-5 record behind a 3.07 ERA in 15 outings at Wrigley Field. The 30-year-old has not had much playoff success and is 2-3 with a 5.35 ERA in seven career postseason starts.

The Cubs turn to left-hander Jon Lester (19-5, 2.44) who led the NL in winning percentage with a .792 mark in the regular season. He is 10-1 in his last 15 starts dating back to before the All-Star break and finished the regular season with a fantastic 10-2 mark and 1.74 ERA home at Wrigley Field. Lester is 6-6 with a 2.85 ERA in 16 career playoff appearances (14 starts), but he lost both his postseason starts for Chicago last year. He’s had plenty of success against tonight’s opponent, boasting a 4-1 record with a 2.25 ERA in five career starts against the Giants

My Lean

Personally I’m not touching this game. The Cubs are likely to win but only a fool would back them at that price while I don’t see any value on the Giants either. I don’t like playing teams on the runline at home either, particularly not when the total is set as low as 7. A play on the Giants +1.5 might be worth a small bet, but I’m going to recommend you to check out my premium picks instead, featuring a pair of early picks on Blue Jays vs. Rangers and Dodgers vs. Nationals.

Game Analysis

MIKE LUNDIN'S DIAMONDBACKS @ PADRES FREE PICK

The San Diego Padres have dropped three in a row and six of their last seven, but I still like the price we get on them as a home favorite against the Arizona Diamondbacks Monday night. 

Padres rookie right-hander Chris Paddack (3-2, 1.99 ERA) has allowed just four runs on 10 hits in 25 2/3 innings home at Petco Park. The Friars have won six of his first eight starts in the big leagues, including a 2-1 triumph at Arizona on April 12 when Paddack fanned five through 5 1/3 frames of one-run ball. 

The D'Backs turn to Luke Weaver (3-2, 3.16 ERA) who pitched opposite Paddack in that very contest and was charged with both runs. Manny Machado is 3-for-6 with a pair of homers off Weaver. 

Free pick on San Diego Padres. 

Few if any handicappers have been able to match Mike Lundin's pace on the basepaths in 2019, and he enters Monday on an ASTONISHING 58-39 (60%), +$14,550 RUN with his MLB premium picks since April 7.

Mike has also had plenty of success with his NBA plays lately (58-43 since Feb 22) and he has absolutely CRUSHED THE BOOKIES with his top-rated plays across all sports with +$38,000 in profits since September 1. Grab a premium subscription today and enjoy that sweet passive income.

SERVICE BIO

A former poker pro, Mike Lundin made his picks available to the public in June of 2014. The late start didn't stop him from finishing as the #8 handicapper overall for the year with a profit of $34,970 for $1,000/game clients! He has since racked up multiple Top 10 finishes across several sports.

Betting Philosophy

Mike Lundin's experience as a professional poker player has proven to be an immeasurable asset in sports handicapping. He's a numbers guy, with a keen eye for spotting trends and stats that just don't jive with the odds offered by the books. Mike's plays will rarely be on huge favorites, he prides himself at finding value in close match-ups and although Mike's considered a moneyline/spread specialist, when he releases totals play you better believe he's got something special cooking. 

***Mike's Picks***

All Mike's plays included in his premium packages come with high quality analyses. Mike rates his plays between 1-10* with 10* being the maximum. Most plays will be 8-10* as he advocates more of a flat betting approach in order to minimize the variance. 

Be sure to check out his long-term subscription offers to get the most bang for your buck.
