What is the best play on the board for bettors if these National League Central rivals do actually play this afternoon?

The 2018 season is just a few days old, but it never really begins until fights break out in the stands. Tyler Chatwood (0-1, 1.50 ERA) will make his second start of the season and his Cubs' Wrigley Field debut.

The Cubs are now averaging 4.50 runs per game, ranking them 15th in the Majors. Problem with that is, when you're dealing with people sitting above you, they have an advantage of height over you and a simple punch and push can send you falling down rows of seats, which is exactly what happened.

Ian Happ hit a tiebreaking two-run single during Chicago's four-run ninth, helping the Cubs beat the Milwaukee Brewers 5-2 on Saturday.

Milwaukee falls back to.500 on the season at 5-5.

Ryon Healy drove in three runs as the Mariners helped Mike Leake (2-0) win again. Nova surrendered five runs in 5 1/3 innings during his last start against the Minnesota Twins when he struck out three and walked one. He allowed two runs in his first start against Minnesota and did not walk a batter, then threw the one-hitter Sunday against Cincinnati.

1-7 in Nova's last 8 starts.


Rizzo, 28, has been dealing with back tightness since last Monday.

I am taking the Cubs in this one.

The Cubs are being patient with Rizzo, so it's entirely possible that he'll be withheld from the lineup for the fourth consecutive game.

About 10 miles to the south, the White Sox were hosting the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday in a game delayed briefly by the wintry weather.

The ever-optimistic Cubs at first said the scheduled 1:20 p.m. game time would be moved back an hour so the grounds crew could clear and prepare the field.

The Chicago Cubs finally get to play at Wrigley Field again.
