Today’s contest was easy to find, if the win comes half as easily, we’ll be happy.

Here is our pick and why we picked it:

Firstly, CHC are some of the strongest in the league vs LH pitchers. At 4.6 runs per game, the Cubs are not at all disadvantaged facing a lefty. Chicago has every bit of means to cripple this pitcher, and so the more important question is how will Quintana react? Jose Quintana is already one of the most lacking LH Starters, so for him to face a team that is strong vs LH Pitchers…well…it seems like it’s an optimal consideration for the CHC pick.
At near even odds, the Cubs look like they’re a great pick.

Let’s take a look:

PITCHING

Starting on the bump today for the White Sox is Jose Quintana:

  • Quintana has given up 6AB vs CHC vs 2/5 hitters over .300AVG
  • Quintana has given up 6AB vs CHC vs 3/5 hitters over .300AVG
  • Quintana is 4.00ERA all games this season.
  • Quintana is 5.00ERA on the road this season.
  • Quintana is 5.82ERA L3G.

Starting on the bump today for the Cubs is Jeff Samardzija:

  • Samardzija has given up 4AB vs 1/7 CWS hitters over .300AVG.
  • Samardzija has given up 35AB vs 6/7 CWS hitters under .300AVG.
  • Samardzija is 1.98ERA all games this season.
  • Samardzija is 2.11ERA at home this season.
  • Samardzija is 2.70ERA L3G.

 

BATTING

  • Chicago White Sox a 5th in the league with a .750OPS.
  • Chicago White Sox is 5.0 runs/game on the road.
  • Chicago White Sox is 4.7 runs/game against RH pitchers.
  • Chicago Cubs is 27th in the league with a ..664OPS.
  • Chicago Cubs is 4.5 runs/game at home.
  • Chicago Cubs is 4.6 runs/game against LH pitchers.

Samardzija has some serious dominance in history vs CWS.
The only question to ask is if it’s worth banking on?

Considering Samardzija has solid history vs 70% of the CWS lineup, it should help to mitigate the redhot bats that CWS has proven all season.

 

BULLPEN

  • Chicago White Sox bullpen is 4.12ERA all games.
  • Chicago White Sox bullpen is 4.24ERA on the road.
  • Chicago Cubs bullpen is 3.68ERA all games.
  • Chicago Cubs bullpen is 5.32ERA at home.

 

Did you know:

  • SAMARDZIJA is 1-1 when starting against CHI WHITE SOX with an ERA of 1.65 and a WHIP of 0.735.
