Brewers Betting Preview
The Brewers have high expectations for this season, but in the first game the offense really struggled to get anything going. Brian Anderson finished with one hit and one walk. The Brewers are pretty healthy heading into this game but they do have a couple of injuries. Tyrone Taylor is dealing with an elbow injury and is going to be out for a little while. On the mound for the Brewers will be Brandon Woodruff and last season he finished with a 13-4 record and an ERA of 3.05.
Cubs Betting Preview
On the other side of this matchup is the Cubs who seem to be a wild card this season in how much success they will have, but they at least got their first win of the season. Dansby Swanson was a big off-season addition and he started off the season strong finishing with three hits, one hit and one RBI. Seiya Suzuki is dealing with an oblique injury and is out until mid April. The Cubs will send Justin Steele to the mound and last season he finished with a 4-7 record and an ERA of 3.18.
Brewers vs Cubs Trends
The Cubs are 7-0 in their last seven home games. The Cubs are 1-5 in their last six games on Saturday. The over is 5-0- in the Steeles last five games on Saturday. The under is 4-0 in the Cubs last four games on Saturday.
Shane’s Free Pick
The Cubs won the first game of the season, and they are going to find a way to do it again here. Steele’s record wasn’t great, but he has a low ERA of 3.18, and the Brewers bats are going to be ice cold again in this game. The Cubs might not win the game, but they are going to score enough to cover the spread. Back the Cubs on the money line.
