Chicago is 4-2 in their last 6 road games and 5-11 in their last 16 Saturday games. The over is 8-0 in Chicago’s last 8 Saturday games. Milwaukee is 8-0 in their last 8 games against the NL Central and 5-1 in their last 6 home games. The under is 7-2-2 in Milwaukee’s last 11 games. Chicago is 8-21 in these two teams last 29 head to head meetings. The over is 5-0 in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings in Milwaukee.

I really like the Brewers in this spot as they come into this game on a win streak and have a solid pitcher on the mound. The Cubs starting pitcher, Steele, has given up 7 earned runs over 5.2 innings pitched in his last two appearances. I like the Brewers -1.5 in this game.
