On offense, the Cubs had a big season from Ian Happ who has hit 15 home runs and driven in 62 RBIs.
The Brewers come into this game with a 66-59 record overall. On Saturday Christian Yelich had a big game finishing with four hits and three RBIs. The second half ot the season the Brewers have been inconsistent and these games against the Cubs are must-wins. The Brewers offense has been the strength and they are averaging 4.5 runs per game. Willy Adames has hit 25 home runs and driven in 73 RBIs.
On the mound for the Cubs is Adrian Sampson who sits with a 1-4 record and an ERA of 4.04. In his last start against the St. Louis Cardinals, he went 3.1 innings giving up eight hits and five runs.
On the mound for the Brewers will be Eric Lauer who sits with a 9-5 record and an ERA of 3.44. In his last start against the Los Angeles Dodgers, he went five innings giving up five hits and zero runs.
The Cubs are 0-4 in their last four games on Sunday. The Brewers are 1-5 in their last six games against a team with a losing record. The under is 4-0 in Lauer’s last four starts on grass. The under is 4-0-1 in Sampson’s last five road starts.
All the trends point towards the under and that’s what will hit here. Lauer in his last start gave up zero runs, and the Cubs are going to struggle to score here. The Brewers will also have some issues against Sampson, and the under will cash.
