Chicago Cubs vs Kansas City Royals Predictions 8/5/2020

Chicago Cubs vs Kansas City Royals. MLB’s pick for game 3 will go to the Chicago Cubs -1.5. Darvish is coming out of a solid performance against the Pirates and will be able to control the mound better in this game against Bubic. The Royals chose a rookie to start the next game so it’s hard to have any expectations for Bubic at this time. The Cubs have the momentum here winning 5 of their last games, and are 6-1 in their last 7 matchups against the Royals. The Cubs will win this match to a predicted score of 6-3.
