double-dime bet 955 Mia (-114) Pinnacle vs 956 CHC
Results: W, $200
Analysis:
955 Miami at Chicago Cubs

Henderson Alvarez and Jake Arrieta meet for matinee baseball on Sunday as the Cubs try to extend their five-game winning streak. Standing in their way is a very tired bullpen and Alvarez, who has already thrown three complete game shutouts this season. 

The bullpen is definitely the biggest concern for the Cubs. After blowing a lot of games early on, this group has become a stabilizing force for the Cubs and has been a big part of their recent success. With Saturday's win, Wesley Wright, Pedro Strop, and Justin Grimm all worked for the third time in four days. Hector Rondon got the day off after working Wednesday and Friday with a 32-pitch blown save on Friday. If called upon, Neil Ramirez will be working for the third time in four days on Sunday, as would Brian Schlitter.

Adding to the concerns, Jake Arrieta needed 105 pitches to manage 4.1 innings in his last start and has averaged just five innings per start over six starts this season. That means that the Cubs will either have to push Arrieta past his threshold or turn to a tired bullpen to save them.

Alvarez is a ground ball machine that doesn't issue many free passes and induces a lot of weak contact because he has great stuff but it somehow fails to translate into swinging strikes. With the safety net of a more rested bullpen and a team desperate to head into Monday's off day on a winning note, the Marlins appear to be a solid play for Sunday.

PLAY: MIAMI
