by GT Staff | >Chicago Cubs at Florida Marlins +105 (8 ½ OVER): The Cubs have been on a tear, having won seven of their last eight, and they’ve done it convincingly – in that stretch the outscored the opposition by more than four runs/game. For the month of July they’re also a stellar 17-8. However, if there’s an Achilles Heel it’s been on the road, where the Cubs are 21-27 for the season. Florida is coming off a tough loss to Atlanta, although the Marlins have won seven of their last nine games. With today’s pitching match-up, don’t expect a low-scoring duel. Both offenses will probably push plenty of runs across the plate, with Florida getting the best of it late. Florida +105, Over 8½.
