Milwaukee is 1-5 in their last 6 Sunday games and 1-8 in their last 9 road games. The over is 17-7 in Milwaukee’s last 24 Sunday games. Chicago is 5-0 in their last 5 games and 3-9 in their last 12 Sunday games. The under is 4-1 in Chicago’s last 5 Sunday games. Milwaukee is 1-6 in these two teams last 7 head to head meetings.
Milwaukee is falling further and further behind the Cardinals in the race for the NL Central and their last seven games have not helped them. Milwaukee needs to turn their play around soon if they want to get to the postseason. Chicago has playing very well and hasn’t lost in five games. Chicago will start Justin Steele, who has allowed two earned runs over his last 20.1 innings pitched. For the Brewers, Brandon Woodruff has allowed seven earned runs over his last 18.1 innings. I think the Cubs have solid value in this game as they are playing great and arguably have the better pitcher based on recent outings. I am taking the Cubs here.
