The Chicago Cubs and Milwaukee Brewers face off on Saturday in an MLB showdown at American Family Field. On Friday, it was the Cubs that were able to secure the 4-3 victory. 

The Cubs come into this game with a 55-71 record overall, but they have won two of their last three games. Over the last two wins, the Cubs have given up only four runs, and they are going to need strong pitching again in this game. The Cubs pitching overall is giving up 4.75 runs per game, which is 24th in the league. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Brewers, who sit with a 65-59 record overall, but they have lost three games in a row. Over the last three games, the Brewers have given up 26 runs. Freddy Peralta had six shutouts no-hit innings on Friday, but was pulled and the Brewers' bullpen blew it. Rowdy Tellez is having a big season, hitting 27 home runs and driving in 75 RBI.

On the mound for the Brewers is Brandon Woodruff who sits with a 9-3 record and an ERA of 3.5.1 In his last start against the Cubs he went 5.2 innings giving up four hits and two runs. 

The Brewers are 5-1 in Woodruff’s last six starts. The cubs are 2-5 in their last 7 road games vs. a team with a winning home record. The under is 4-0 in Smyly’s last four starts overall. The over is 2-0-2 in Woodruff’s last four starts overall. 

The Brewers have found success in Woodruff’s starts the last month, and the biggest reason has because he has continued to pitch light out. In his last start he gave up only two runs, and Smyly in his last start gave up only one run. Look for both offenses to really struggle here, and the under is going to cash.
