The Milwaukee Brewers and Chicago Cubs face off on Wednesday in a National League Central MLB showdown at Wrigley Field. The Brewers have won two of the first three games of this series.
The Brewers come into this game with a 32-19 record overall and even though they scored seven runs on Tuesday, it wasn’t enough to get the job done. The Brewers offense is averaging 4.61 runs per game and it’s going to be important they tee off on Kyle Hendricks in this game. Rowdy Tellez has been the top player for the Brewers hitting 10 home runs and driving in 36 RBIs.
On the other side of this matchup is the Cubs who sit with a 20-29 record overall and they had lost three games in a row before winning on Tuesday. The Cubs offense has been strong this season, but their pitching staff has really let them down giving up 4.55 runs per game which is 20th in baseball. Patrick Wisdom has been the top player for the Cubs hitting 11 home runs and driving in 26 RBIs. The Cubs are going to need strong pitching in this game if they want to come away with a victory.
On the mound for the Cubs will be Kyle Hendricks who sits with a 2-5 record and an ERA of 5.20. In his last game against the Cincinnati Reds, he went four innings, giving up five hits and four earned runs.
The Cubs are 1-9 in Hendricks last 10 starts on Wednesday. The over is 4-0 in the Brewers last four during game 4 of a series. The under is 3-0-1 in Hendrick’s last four games played on Wednesday. The over is 5-1 in the Cubs last six home games.
Hendricks isn’t the same pitcher he once was, and I expect he’s going to get lit up again in this game. In the last start Hendricks gave up four runs, and he is going to give up at least that in this game. Look for the Brewers to score at least six or seven runs and that will be enough for Milwaukee to cruise to the victory. Back Milwaukee -1.5 to cash.
