Stephen Nover's Wednesday Wipeout Winner

Chi Cubs vs. Pittsburgh, 08/01/2018 19:05 EDT, Score: 9 - 2

Money Line: -115 Chi Cubs

Sportsbook: Betonline

Result: Win

Nick Kingham and his 4.80 ERA isn't likely to be in the Pirates' starting rotation too much longer with Chris Archer coming on board.

I'm going to lay a short road price with the better team, Cubs, and what I see as a rejuvenated Cole Hamels.

Hamels gets a repreive coming to the Cubs from the 46-63 Rangers. Hamels had a bad July. He said his arm is fine. His problem was mechanics, which he said have been straighten out now. Hamels should do better in the National League. The four-time All-Star is past his prime, but he still knows how to pitch and his fastball still has zip as evidenced by 114 strikeouts in 114 1/3 innings.

Hamels last faced the Pirates two years ago. He has a 1.22 career ERA in five starts versus Pittsburgh.

Kinghman is off a bad start against the lowly Mets where he yielded six runs in three-plus innings on seven hits and four walks during a 12-6 home loss this past Thursday.
