When it comes to Chicago Cubs baseball games at Wrigley Field, wind is often on the minds of MLB bettors.
Wrigley is no stranger to very breezy conditions, which have a significant effect on scoring depending on the direction of the wind.
For example, a wind blowing out to center will help carry warning-track outs over the wall, while strong breezes driving directly to home place can turn no-doubt home runs into long fly-ball outs.
Sunday afternoon’s Diamondbacks vs. Cubs game at Wrigley will also be played in strong winds, so let’s take a look at the latest Chicago weather forecast and how savvy MLB can take advantage right now.

According to the National Weather Service, steady 10 mph winds are expected at Wrigley Field in Chicago on Sunday afternoon with the potential for gusts to hit 20 mph.
But as I mentioned above, the direction of wind is what matters most for MLB bettors.
