Cubs vs Marlins Predictions
Winners and Whiners
David Hess, of Winners and Whiners, is picking the Cubs as home favorites on Tuesday. He argues that Lester has been dominant when facing a team with a losing record with Chicago, as the Cubs have gone 41-11 straight up in such contests.
On the other hand, Tony Tellez, of Tony's Picks, is picking the Marlins to pull off the upset here. He believes that Chicago's bats have gone cold, which could give Miami the edge.
Guy Bruhn, of Doc's Sports, breaks the tie, also picking Miami to win. Bruhn notes that Miami's starter Caleb Smith has been really effective this season, posting a 2.00 ERA through seven appearances in 2019.
That's two of three experts picking the Marlins to win in an upset, making Hess the only one predicting a Cubs' victory on Tuesday night.
