The model, which simulates every game 10,000 times, has raked in the winnings for those following its picks and is off to a profitable start on its top-rated MLB money-line picks this season. The model has a proven track record of hitting on its top picks in baseball, football, basketball, hockey and more. Anyone who has followed it is way up.
Now, the model has zeroed in Cubs vs. Braves. We can tell you it is leaning over, and it also says one side of the money line has all the value. You can only see that pick at SportsLine.
The model knows the Cubs will be counting on Lester, the reliable staple of their rotation, to help them get back on the winning track after shaky pitching contributed to the recent losing streak. The 35-year-old lefty was efficient in his first start of the season, a 12-4 win over the Texas Rangers.
Lester (1-0, 3.00 ERA) allowed two earned runs on four hits in six innings. He struck out three, while allowing two walks and one homer. It was the first opening day win for Lester in the past five seasons. In nine career starts against the Braves, Lester is 6-2 with a 2.47 ERA.
But just because Lester has history on his side doesn’t guarantee Chicago is the best value on the Cubs vs. Braves money line.
On Wednesday, the Braves will have history on their side when Teheran faces Chicago. In fact, the Braves are 7-1 in his last eight starts against the Cubs and are also 7-1 in their last eight home games.
Teheran won his lone outing against Chicago last season despite allowing four runs in six innings. The 28-year-old righty has been particularly effective against Cubs slugger Kris Bryant, allowing just one hit in 11 at-bats while recording five strikeouts. Despite taking the loss in the opener, Teheran was relatively solid with three runs and four hits allowed in five innings against the Phillies.
Right-hander Kyle Hendricks will make his 2019 debut in Monday’s home opener in Atlanta. Hendricks was great for the Cubs in 2018 posting a 3.44 ERA while making 33 starts and logging 199 innings. He didn’t pitch against Atlanta in 2018 but has performed well in his career with a 2.33 ERA to go along with 18 strikeouts in 19 1/3 innings.
There was a point in the spring where it looked like Sean Newcomb might not make the club and would instead start at Triple-A. However, he pitched better In his final spring start against Cincinnati and given injuries to Mike Foltynewicz and Kevin Gausman have him in line to start the home opener.
There has never been a question about Newcomb’s stuff, it has always been about his command. He made strides at times in 2018 but his career to date has very much been a roller coaster ride.
Jon Lester made the Opening Day start for the Cubs in Texas and picked up a victory after allowing two runs over six innings to go along with three strikeouts and two walks. Lester has made nine career starts against Atlanta and has a 2.47 ERA during that span.
Thanks to Tuesday’s off day, the Braves will bring back Julio Teheran on regular rest to start Game 2 against the Cubs. Teheran pitched good enough against the Phillies on Opening Day with a fastball that was sitting 90-92 and a good slider. He ended up allowing four runs over five innings.
Yu Darvish struggled in his return to Texas in his first start logging a career-worst seven walks while lasting just 2 2/3 innings. Darvish did a good job of minimizing the damage allowing just three runs and two hits. Darvish has faced the Braves twice in his career allowing 12 hits and five runs in 8 2/3 innings. This will be his second career start at SunTrust Park.
Max Fried had been penciled in to start Thursday’s series finale but that won’t be happening after pitching in relief on Sunday in Philadelphia. It is possible that we see Kevin Gausman in this spot after he pitched in a minor league game earlier this week. The Braves could also elect to start Fried on short rest and piggy back him with someone like Bryse Wilson.
