The Chicago Cubs and the Miami Marlins will both be gunning for a victory on Friday when they meet at Marlins Park.

The Cubs will trot John Lackey out to the mound in this one. Right hander Lackey has a 5-7 record and a 4.98 ERA this season.

It’ll be Jose Urena toeing the rubber for the Marlins in this contest. Right hander Urena is 5-2 with a 3.64 ERA so far this season.

Lackey held Pittsburgh to one run and two hits over six innings on Sunday to earn his first win since May 16. The biggest issue for the 38-year-old has been keeping the ball in the park, as he has allowed 20 home runs after giving up just 23 all of last season. Lackey is 1-2 with a 5.01 ERA in five career starts against the Marlins.

Urena has won his last four decisions and has posted two straight quality starts. The 25-year-old didn’t factor in the decision Sunday at Atlanta, but he pitched well, limiting the Braves to two runs and three hits over six frames. Urena is 1-1 with a 4.91 ERA in two starts against the Cubs.

Oddsmakers currently have the Cubs listed as 123-moneyline favorites versus the Marlins, while the game’s total is sitting at 9.

The Chicago Cubs’ lineup has been overhauled by injuries to two starters and the demotion of another, but the defending World Series champions are hoping to build on one of their best offensive outputs of the season. The Cubs and their new-look lineup aim for their fifth win in six games in the second of a four-game series at the Miami Marlins on Friday.

Chicago sent struggling slugger Kyle Schwarber to Triple-A Iowa on Thursday, and outfielder Jason Heyward (hand) joined Ben Zobrist on the disabled list. Nonetheless, the Cubs smacked 16 hits – one off their season high – in an 11-1 win in the series opener, as Kris Bryant, Addison Russell, and Willson Contreras all homered. The Cubs have won three of four meetings with the Marlins this season, but Miami’s one win came June 7 in Chicago with the same matchup on the mound that is set for Friday. In that one, Jose Urena held the Cubs to three runs and three hits over five innings to earn the win, while veteran John Lackey allowed five runs over six innings to take the loss.

Miami lost its last outing, a 11-1 result against the Cubs on June 22. Bettors who backed the Cubs at -142 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (12) sent OVER bettors to the payout window.

In their last action, Chicago was a 11-1 winner on the road against the Marlins. Bettors on Chicago at -142 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (12) sent OVER bettors home happy as well.
