September 24, 2019 -- According to our model, the Cubs predicted to over perform on the road against the Pirates with a 90.73% chance to win.

The Cubs have Kyle Hendricks as the probable starting pitcher against Mitch Keller. The Snoozle model estimates the Cubs pitcher will have an outing for 7.088 innings, allowing 1.771 earned runs, with 2.186 walks. The Snoozle MLB model estimates Mitch Keller will have 4.615 earned runs, a predicted 18.245 outs, and 6.317 strike outs.

Expected in today's lineup will be top hitters Kris Bryant and Jose Osuna from Cubs and Pirates, respectively. According to our game model, Kris Bryant is estimated to have 1.206 RBIs and score 1.133 runs over an estimated 4.581 at-bats. Jose Osuna is forecast to bat for 0.233 with 0.471 RBIs and 0.362 runs scored.

The Cubs are the best value for the money line based on the -195 odds and a forecasted 90.73% win estimate. Based on the prediction model's over 72.98% likelihood and -110 odds, the over line with 8.5 runs is the best value.
