*Each bet graded as if it were to win 1 unit
Seeing the over/under set at 8 for what looks like a pitchers’ duel on paper isn’t very common, but that will be the case when the Pirates and Cubs commence a four-game set in Chicago tonight.
In this particular case, the total being set at its current number is largely due to the fact that those infamous Wrigley Field winds are expected to be blowing out, but will it impact how this series opener plays out?
