Last year, the Chicago Cubs won an MLB-best 103 games and finished 35.5 games ahead of last-place Cincinnati in the NL Central. However, the Reds entered this week ahead of Chicago in the NL Central. Who saw that coming? From what we’ve seen this season, the Cubs haven’t been at their best so far. They’re coming off a 3 game weekend series against the St. Louis Cardinals, losing at 1-2. For the Reds, it’s wasn’t a good weekend either. They faced they San Francisco Giants in a losing effort, ending the series at 1-3. The Cubs will be betting favorites for Game 2 of their series on Wednesday.
