Cubs/Pirates over 8
Cubs avg 4 runs per game support for Dempster and whereas Dempster and the Cubs shut the Pirates out last season, overs are 4-1 when he faces the Pirates and overs are 7-1 when Maholm faces the Cubs.
Ian Kennedy has been solid and Houston could only manage 1 against a nervous rookie making his 1st start of his big league career how many do they figure to score against a pitcher that silenced the Cubs for the most part w/ the wind blowing out as well as the Phils. There are players in the DBacks lineup who have had success against Oswalt in thier career.
Dodgers/Crew over 8.5
Alot of bad blood as these teams meet in LA after Prince wanted to go into thier locker room and introduce himself to Guillermo Mota after he got hit by a pitch. Both previous games Kershaw has faced the Crew went over I believe this will make 3 for 3
