Cubs' Bryant hit in the head

Dennis Wierzbicki- USA Today Sports

There was plenty of testiness in the series between the Chicago Cubs and the Colorado Rockies, especially in Sunday's finale.

"As good as can be expected", manager Joe Maddon said after Chicago's 9-7 win. The game's runline odds sit at +125 for taking the Cubs -1.5 runs and -145 for the Rockies +1.5.

Cubs: CF Albert Almora Jr. was briefly down after making a diving catch on Arenado's drive in the first inning. He had three hits overall in the game and is hitting.321 in the early going. They've gained 2.8 units for bettors taking the moneyline and 2.1 units ATS.

Colorado is 6-2 in its past eight games.

Chicago has been incredibly inconsistent this season, stringing together consecutive wins only once en route to its.500 record. After that point, Rockies starter Tyler Anderson settled in and barely gave the Cubs anything to work with.

Between all of the rainouts and the inconsistencies from the pitching staff and the offense, 2018 has gotten off to a odd start for the Chicago Cubs.

Guardiola: I want Manchester City to be a Premier League machine
The Belgian got on the scoresheet, too, scoring a thunderous effort to cap a man-of-the-match performance for Pep Guardiola's men. Next Ilkay Gündogan played an inadvertent one-two with the referee, Craig Pawson, that allowed the German to find David Silva.

Colorado's pitchers have yielded 5.0 runs per game overall in 2018 as a unit. And Yu Darvish was basically unhittable through 4 innings. The team's hit.218/.291/.394 over its last five matchups and is 3-2 SU during that stretch. Kyle Schwarber also had a big game with three hits, including his 4th homer of the year, while driving in four runs. Well, that pitching could be breaking down some as they will enter Saturday's game having allowed 10 and 16 runs in their two games. The bullpen has an outstanding ERA of just 2.76, along with a WHIP of 1.53 and a K-per-9 of 8.92.

Chicago's offense has been spearheaded by Kris Bryant so far. Javier Baez's seventh homer made it 4-0 in the second and Jason Heyward had a two-run single in the third for a 6-0 lead. Across 84 such plate appearances, he maintained a slash line of.348/.488/.561 (compared to his overall season line of.295/.409/.537).

The over has cashed in three of Colorado's last seven games.

Baez has been red-hot as of late, hitting.500 in this past week.

From the 5th inning on, the game was rather quiet offensively since neither team got any hits.
