Chicago Cubs MLB Betting

Last year was considered to be the Chicago Cubs' one last run for glory. The Cubs won the National League Central for the third time in five years and made the postseason for the fifth time in six seasons. However, the hopes of another World Series were shattered in a stunning 2-0 upset loss to the Miami Marlins in the wild card. If that wasn't bad enough, the Cubs seemed to be waving the white flag of surrender this past offseason. The core roster that led the Cubs to the greatest era of glory in their history is breaking up. Fans and gamblers alike see the Cubs' World Series window closing, least for this team's generation.

2021 Season Preview

The 2020 Chicago Cubs finished 24-26 with 29-30-1 under the total. The Cubs were champions of the National League Central Division by three games over the St. Louis Cardinals and Cincinnati Reds. MLB metrics showed the Cubs 20th for run production, 27th for batting average, 21st for OPS, and 17th for home runs. Chicago committed the eighth fewest errors in the major leagues. On the hill, the Cubs ranked 10th for staff earned run average, 7th for WHIP, 2nd for quality starts, and 13th for the bullpen.

Overall, Chicago has dropped to 11th in Major League Baseball for team payroll after consistently ranking in the top five. Many Cubs fans saw Yu Darvish's departure as a declaration of unconditional surrender for the 2021 season. The Cubs still have an appealing core with Javier Baez, Kris Bryant, and Anthony Rizzo, but legitimate questions abound about whether it will be enough.

First baseman Anthony Rizzo is a three-time NL All-Star but is coming off a subpar 2020 season. Rizzo hit .222 with 11 home runs, 24 runs batted in, and a .755 OPS. The previous season Rizzo posted a .924 OPS.

Third Baseman Kris Bryant is also a three-time All-Star that suffered from a steep drop in 2020. Bryant went from a .903 OPS in 2019 down to .644 in 2020. He hit only four home runs on the year.

Kyle Hendricks still anchors the starting pitching staff and was a reliable performer in 2020.
