The weather at Wrigley Field is always a factor for both oddsmakers and bettors.

Sportsbooks often keep Chicago Cubs totals off the board longer than normal to get a better handle on what to expect from the Wrigley winds.

On the other hand, bettors are always trying to get ahead of the forecast as well, then pounce as soon as odds become available.

Today’s Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Chicago Cubs game is a perfect example as double-digit winds are in the forecast, making this over/under a target for savvy bettors.
