Chicago Cubs vs Miami Marlins 4/29/2023 Picks Predictions Previews


The Chicago Cubs will go against the Miami Marlins in MLB action in loanDepot Park, Florida, on Saturday, April 29, 2023, at 4:05 PM ET.


Even on a windy day at Wrigley Field, Chicago had a respectable at-bat performance, and that, along with strong pitching, helped them win the rubber game of their series against the Padres on Thursday.


The Cubs were third in the NL Central, three matches behind the Pirates, with a record of 14-10 entering Friday.


Thursday’s nine-hit attack was led by Dansby Swanson (run, RBI) and Ian Happ (RBI), who each had two hits.


In the triumph, home runs were hit by Nelson Velasquez (his second), Dansby Swanson (his first), and Eric Hosmer (his second).


On the mound, Hayden Wesneski (2-1) received the victory after pitching five innings, during which he gave up one run on 4 hits, one walk, and 3 strikeouts. 


The Cubs will likely call up Caleb Kilian from Triple-A Iowa of the International League to start the season since Jameson Taillon is on the injured list.


This season, he made three starts for Iowa, going 1-0 with a 7.15 ERA, a 1.765 WHIP, four walks, and 6 strikeouts over 11.1 innings of work, though he was much more effective in his last two appearances. 


  • The Chi Cubs are 2-4 SU in their last 6 matches.
  • The Chi Cubs are 5-10 SU in their last 15 matches against Miami.
  • The Chi Cubs are 4-1 SU in their last 5 matches on the road.

Chicago Cubs vs Miami Marlins Predictions 4/29/2023


Miami appeared to be on the verge of losing their four-game series with the Braves when they came back to surprise them with a five-run ninth inning.


The Marlins had a 13-13 record going into Friday and were tied for third place in the NL East, four games behind Atlanta for first place.


Luis Arraez and Jean Segura both had two hits for Miami in their 11-hit performance against Atlanta on Thursday. Prior to scoring 5 runs on six hits in their final at-bat to secure the victory, the Marlins were down 4-0.


Rain cut his outing short, so Braxton Garrett only had three innings to pitch. He gave up zero runs on one hit, no walks, and three strikeouts.


With a scoreless eighth inning in which he gave up no hits or walks while striking out one, A.J. Puk (2-0) earned the victory. For his second save, Dylan Floro struck out two in a 1-2-3 ninth inning.


In this game, Marlins pitcher Edward Cabrera will make his sixth start of the year on the mound. He enters the game with a record of 1-2, a 4.91 ERA, a 1.773 WHIP, a league-high 20 walks, and 24 strikeouts in 22 innings pitched.


Cabrera’s most recent start, against the Braves on the road on Monday, was in a loss. He pitched 4.1 innings in a match that lost 11-0, giving up four runs on four hits, four walks, and six Ks. 


  • The total went OVER in 5 of Miami’s last 6 matches.
  • The Miami Marlins are 2-4 SU in their last 6 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 6 of Miami’s last 8 matches against the Chi Cubs.

Chicago Cubs vs Miami Marlins. The MLB pick for this game is the Chicago Cubs. Given that Taillon is out, the Cubs’ decision to start a young pitcher with little major league experience (11.1 innings in three starts) is perplexing.


Adrian Sampson could have filled in here, but since he was also on the IL, the team’s options are currently constrained.


In contrast, Cabrera was walking batters at an alarming rate this year, which is something you don’t want to do against a Chicago lineup that did a fantastic job scoring runs.


Kilian ought to be able to contain Miami if he can maintain his composure and refrain from going for walks. The Chicago Cubs will win to a predicted score of 6-3.
