Chicago is 4-1 in their last 5 road games and 1-4 in their last 5 games against the NL Central. The under is 5-1 in Chicago’s last 6 games against the NL Central. Milwaukee is 6-0 in their last 6 games against the NL Central and 4-1 in their last 5 Friday games. The under is 6-1-2 in Milwaukee’s last 9 games. The over is 8-1-2 in these two teams last 11 head to head meetings. The over is 4-0 in these two teams last 4 head to head meetings in Milwaukee.

These two teams are heading in opposite directions, with the Brewers being the team that is trending up. Milwaukee started the year slow, but has woken up in their last handful of games. This is a good pitching matchup, but I don’t know how much I like Houser. He has been decent to start this year and goes up against Hendricks, who has had two very good starts this year. I like the Cubs at plus money in this one.
