    SportsLine's projection model, which is on a profitable 129-105 run, has locked in its MLB picks for the St. Louis Cardinals vs. the Chicago Cubs on Friday afternoon

    The St. Louis Cardinals will look to extend their winning streak to three games when they take on the National League Central-rival Chicago Cubs on Friday in Chicago. The Cardinals (33-34), who have won three consecutive games against Chicago dating back to last season, are 16-19 on the road in 2024. The Cubs (33-36), who are 4-6 over the past 10 games, have played well at home, going 18-13 at Wrigley Field.     

    First pitch is scheduled for 2:20 p.m. ET. The Cubs are the -123 money line favorite (risk $123 to win $100) in the latest Cardinals vs. Cubs odds, while St. Louis is a +103 underdog. The over/under for total runs scored is 7.5
