Chicago Cubs at Arizona Diamondbacks +105 (9 total)

At the start of July, we stated that the Cubs would be a good "go-against" this month, mostly because of their heavily-weighted road schedule. As everyone knows, Chicago has been as bad on the road as they’ve been good at home. And that’s held up in July: so far, the Cubs are 7-9 overall this month, and 4-7 on the road. They’ve already lost two straight to Arizona, so let’s stay on the Diamondbacks for a shot at sweeping. Also, let’s take a look at the "over" in this game as Doug Davis for Arizona has shown a willingness to throw the ball over the plate, and the Cubbies’ Ted Lilly has an ERA in the mid 4’s, which could be dented a bit in the Arizona desert. Arizona +105, over 9 runs.
