(MLB) Chi Cubs vs. Pittsburgh, 06/23/2022 12:35 PM, Score: 7 - 8
Money Line: 103.00 Pittsburgh (Home)
Result: Win
The Pirates are the better team and are at home. So I'm perplexed as to why this line is inflated in the Cubs' favor. 

The pitching matchup pits lefties Justin Steele, who has a 4.27 ERA, against Pittsburgh's Jose Quintana, who has a 3.66 ERA and the added motivation of pitching against the team he played for from 2018-2020. 

The Cubs battered the Pirates, 14-5, on Wednesday. However, the Pirates won the first two games of the series by a combined 19-2. Pittsburgh is 4-3 in its last seven games. The Cubs are 3-13 in their last 16 games. 

The Pirates are getting a spark from recently called-up talented young players such as Oneil Cruz and Bligh Madris.
