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.

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.
