Chicago Cubs vs Pittsburgh Pirates. MLB’s choice to win the next game is the Chicago Cubs -150. It’s hard to pick the Pirates even with Brault on the mound who had one of his best starts in his last game. He only allowed 1 earned run in 9 innings but has a team that is terrible this season. Quintana won’t be on the mound for long since Chicago can pull him out if things go south. The Cubs are 6-1 in their last 7 outings against the Pirates. Pick the Cubs predicted at 7-4.
