Friday's 2:20 pm EDT Pirates vs. Cubs game featured a line of -151 on Chicago and +141 on Pittsburgh with the Cubs seeing better than 70% of the action at some books.

PITCHING MATCHUP: Pirates RH Chad Kuhl (4-3, 3.86 ERA) vs. Cubs LH Mike Montgomery (1-1, 3.89)

Kuhl is winless in his last five outings, but he has put together quality starts in three straight turns and five of his last six.

Montgomery has been terrific in two spot starts filling in while Yu Darvish is on the disabled list. The 28-year-old has allowed one run and four hits over 11 2/3 innings across those two outings, and the Cubs have won both games. Montgomery is 2-0 with a 2.53 ERA in eight games (two starts) against the Pirates.

The books driving this line down from -189 is a clear indication that they believe the PIRATES WIN HERE +141 and indeed this will be our pick.

The Cubs in particular are doing a number on regional bookies, especially those who are not utilizing a top Pay Per Head service.
