The Brewers have won seven straight games when scoring four or more runs. Keston Hiura leads the Brewers with 36 hits and 25 RBI while Christian Yelich and Orlando Arcia have combined for 59 hits and 31 RBI.

The Cubs are 22-8 in their last 30 during game 1 of a series and 3-7 in their last 10 games as an underdog. The Brewers are 6-14 in their last 20 games following a win, 4-11 in their last 15 during game 1 of a series and 5-16 in their last 21 games following an off day. The under is 7-1-1 in Cubs last 9 overall. The over is 5-1 in Brewers last 6 home games. The Cubs are 2-6 in the last 8 meetings in Milwaukee and 3-7 in the last 10 meetings.
Jon Lester has allowed 10 runs and 14 hits in his last 8.2 innings while Brandon Woodruff has allowed 18 runs and 36 hits in his last 34.2 innings. Lester has made himself unbackable as of late, as he's given up five or more runs in four of his last five starts. Woodruff gives the Brewers a chance each time he takes the mound, and he's allowed three or less earned runs in eight of his first nine starts.
Give me the Brewers and the reasonable price at home.
