Pittsburgh at Chi. Cubs MLB Baseball Betting Lines, Odds & Vegas Predictions (09/13/19)
Pittsburgh Pirates at Chicago Cubs MLB Matchup
Their grip on the second National League wild-card spot is not as comfortable as it once was, and the Chicago Cubs are hoping to regain some of their lead during their final homestand of the season.
Chicago (78-68) finished its previous homestand holding a 2 1/2-game lead on the Philadelphia Phillies on Sept. 3. The Cubs also held a five-game lead on Milwaukee after getting a 10-5 victory over the Brewers on Sept. 5 but are 2-5 since.
In that span of seven games, Milwaukee has won seven straight, the New York Mets are 5-2 and Philadelphia is 4-3. That has not only created a deadlock for the second spot, but also pushed those four teams within two games of each other. The Arizona Diamondbacks are 3 1/2 games out after getting swept in a four-game series by the Mets.
