The win streak is now at five after last night’s Cubs-Royals Under 8.5 bet emerged victorious with some room to spare. Hopefully I can keep it going this afternoon in a game at the always-intriguing Coors Field.

The attention will be a little heavier today in this particular affair, as Chris Archer gets set to make his second start with his new club. In his Pirates debut last Friday, the former AL All-Star did not fare so well, allowing five runs (three earned) and 11 baserunners while failing to escape the fifth inning against St. Louis.

But that’s what makes this spot so appealing if you’re looking to lean on Archer. Will he struggle in back-to-back assignments to begin his tenure with the Buccos?
