The Chicago Cubs and St. Louis Cardinals are set to face off in Sunday’s final game at Busch Stadium. The top two teams in the National League Central have split the first two games in their current three-game series. Let’s go over the top betting options for the game at DraftKings Sportsbook.

Cubs vs. Cardinals, 7:00 p.m. ET, ESPN

Moneyline pick: Cubs (+118)

Chicago is three games back from St. Louis and lost its last matchup against the Cardinals, but the pitching battle is in favor of the underdog. Adam Wainwright has given up six home runs and 18 runs in his last six games. That poor stretch bodes well for the Cubs.

Player Prop: Zach Davies O3.5 strikeouts (+115)

Davies has only registered more than three Ks three times in nine starts. The Cardinals are one of MLB’s better teams when it comes to not striking out at the plate, but Davies has notched at least three Ks in four of the eight games he’s pitched at least three innings in. Chicago. Getting what’s close to 50-50 odds for a plus-money bet isn't bad.
