GREG GAMBLE’S 2008-09 HARDWOOD Luv: 134-108 ats…56%
NBA 93-85 - NCAA 33-19 - Teasers 8-4 - Church League 69-0
LOS ANGELES DODGERS (-110) @ CHICAGO CUBS
Just as I told you when Man-Ram was first suspended, the Dodgers line-up was still frickin' loaded and would step-up their game up with the cult-hero absent. And as mentioned, LA is crushing the ball against lefties. Even the left-hand hitting former Cub, Juan "Ted Williams" Pierre is dominating guys throwing from the same side as Ted Lilly. You won't believe it, but he's hitting .552 against them!
As for the Dodgers starter, 24 year-old Chad Billingsley (6-2, 2.82) might be the most underrated right-handed young pitcher in the majors (career: 41-21, 3.26). And while some believe LA might be a lil tired after flying in from Colorado the other night, playing yesterday night, and having an afternoon start today, trust me, teams are so excited to play in Wrigley there's no need to worry bout a letdown.
