1 unit on Milwaukee +114 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 2.14) RESULT: LOSS
The Milwaukee Brewers are certainly not a very good team, but bad teams go through stretches of the season where they play above their basic level. The Brewers are doing so now, and their pitching has been key as they have held nine of their last 16 opponents to three runs or fewer, and seven of those opponents scored one or fewer runs. The Cubs have been quite inconsistent, despite winning two straight games, it has been a month since they have won three straight times. Taylor Jungmann has been an ace for the Brewers at 5-2 with a 2.14 ERA, and has been especially tough at home, where in his three starts he carries a 1.59 ERA. The Cubs have floundered many opportunities behind Hammels vs. a losing team where they are a woeful 3-12 in his last 15 starts against them. Back the Brew Crew.
