Chicago Cubs vs Milwaukee Brewers Prediction

The Chicago Cubs are coming off a super late Sunday night game, which isn't ideal for an afternoon game here. We could see a sluggish Cubs squad. Regardless, Justin Steele hasn't been good this season and the Cubs have had zero success this year when he pitches. The Milwaukee Brewers usually bounce back offensively after laying an egg in their previous game, and Robert Gasser has been solid through three career starts. Throw in the rest advantage and home field, you have to like the Brewers with the cheap price. Give me the Brewers in game 1 against the Cubs.
