Nationals vs Cubs Prop Bet

All Nationals-Cubs betting lines, odds and prop bets are available on FanDuel Sportsbook.
- 1st Half Money Line: Chicago Cubs (-128)  A pair of hot teams, both competing for a playoff spot, kick off a three-game series tonight at Wrigley. The Cubs, coming off a series sweep of the Giants, have been dominant at home this season with a 44-19 record. The Nats, meanwhile, are 8-2 in their last 10 games and solid on the road this year (34-31). The edge goes to the home team though, who will be starting lefty Jon Lester against Nats' righty Aníbal Sánchez. On the season, Washington has struggled against lefties (18th in total runs against) in comparison to righties (seventh in runs).
