Mariners Top Cubs on Friday

We like this game. But, we like the home team. Bryce Miller has nasty stuff, and he is going to use it in this game. The Cubs seem to be hit or miss on the offensive side.

When we make our final bet for this game, we are going to go with the Seattle Mariners. Miller goes 6 strong, and the Mariners win. Take Seattle -125 over Chicago. Enjoy the game and best of luck with all your Major League Baseball betting!
