Free MLB Pick

We’re fully aware that Wood’s season opening start was not something that would have you jumping on his back to get you the money in his next outing. However, he’s pitched exceptionally well against the Reds in recent games holding them to zero runs in three of his last four starts and getting the win in all three. The Reds have been hitting lefties but we’ll take our chances here that history will repeat itself tonight at Wrigley with a money line bet on the Cubs.
