Cubs win this, you're getting excellent value with Chicago. The NL Central rivals met at Wrigley Field earlier this season, with the Cubs sweeping the three-game series. Jon Lester has lost only six of his 24 career starts against Pittsburgh, and his 12 wins are his most versus any NL team. Expect him to reach lucky 13 tonight
