Cubs vs Pirates Prop Bet

All Cubs-Pirates betting lines, odds and prop bets are available on FanDuel Sportsbook.
- Joe Musgrove - Strikeouts: Over 5.5 (+120) — Musgrove has not pitched great in his six appearances since the MLB All-Star break, but he has faired very well against the Cubs this season and over his career. In 9 1/3 innings pitched this season against Chicago, he has allowed zero runs while racking up 10 strikeouts. The Cubs may have a potent offense, but they are also a whiff-heavy lineup, especially against right-handed pitching. Among all MLB teams, the Cubs currently have the fifth-most strikeouts against righties.
