For the second straight day, the winds will be whipping at Wrigley Field, which is providing a valuable edge for Reds vs. Cubs bettors.

As you can see from the graphic below, the breezes remain both consistent in direction and intensity from first pitch throughout the night.

These winds will clearly have an effect on scoring and savvy bettors have historically taken advantage of this situation.

Since 2005, games played at Wrigley with winds of at least 5 mph blowing in have resulted in unders going 227-144-18 for a 61.2% win rate.


When those winds reach double-digits, unders are even better at 65.1%. And as we know from the weather forecast, winds should easily surpass the 10-mph mark tonight.
