Top Cubs vs. Orioles pick

For Orioles vs. Cubs, one of the top picks from SportsLine's model is that Orioles outfielder Cedric Mullins goes Over 0.5 total bases (-175). The model is projecting 1.5 total bases for him and rates this pick as the maximum five stars in confidence. 

Mullins had an up-and-down road trip, alternating games with and without at least one hit. However, the model has spotted an edge for Mullins as he takes on Taillon, a pitcher he has dominated. Mullins has a .417 batting average and a sizzling 1.450 OPS against him, dating back to their time as AL East rivals when Taillon pitched for the Yankees. 

Mullins also has better splits both at home and against righties, which is what Taillon is, so the model is confident that he'll get at least a single in this one to hit this prop. See more picks at SportsLine
