Chicago is on the brink of elimination after their great season. The Cubs had a roller coaster ride with their best start in 50 years while getting inconsistent in the mid to the end season.

Miami Marlins vs Chicago Cubs. MLB’s choice to win game 2 is the Miami Marlins +165. Darvish on the mound should be a plus for Chicago but he might crumble under pressure. Sanchez had bad games in his previous starts but he is capable of destroying hitters especially against the Cubs who have no experience against him. Chicago is having trouble offensively in recent days and will cost them their postseason if they don’t step up. The Miami Marlins will spank the Cubs to a predicted score of 5-4.
