Day action at Wrigley Field in the summer is one of baseball's many great traditions.

The Chicago Cubs being bad at baseball is another.

The Cubbies sit at a disappointing 47-50 on the season, with names like Craig Kimbrel, Javier Baez, Anthony Rizzo and Kris Bryant rumored to be available for teams looking to add players ahead of the July 30 trade deadline.

But luckily for Chicago, it gets a matchup with Major League Baseball's worst team — the Arizona Diamondbacks — on Friday afternoon at Wrigley.

According to live MLB odds, the Cubs are -145 favorites against the Diamondbacks and 66% of bettors have already piled on the hosts.

Interestingly, our MLB PRO Projections are pinging a very nice edge in this matchup, and let's just say that the majority of Diamondbacks vs. Cubs bettors seem to be on the wrong side of this meeting.

Per The Action Network's MLB betting model, Arizona should be a much shorter underdog against Chicago.

We project the Diamondbacks' moneyline at +101, which translates to a 5.4% and B-graded edge when compared to the current market consensus of +125, unearthing Arizona as one of the top MLB betting values.
