The Chicago Cubs and the Milwaukee Brewers meet Tuesday in MLB action from American Family Field. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Chicago Cubs vs Milwaukee Brewers Prediction.

Starting Pitching Matchup

The Chicago Cubs will send out Ben Brown for the start here and Brown is 1-1 with a 3.20 ERA and 45 strikeouts this season. This will be Brown’s first career start against the Brewers. The Milwaukee Brewers will start Freddy Peralta here and Peralta is 3-3 with a 3.81 ERA and 71 strikeouts this season. In his last five starts against the Cubs, Peralta is 0-1 with a 3.76 ERA and 31 strikeouts.

Chicago Cubs Recap

The Chicago Cubs come into this one looking to bounce back from a 5-1 loss at the hands of the Brewers in Monday’s series opener. The loss pushed the skid to five games for the Cubs, who start this series on the wrong foot after looking to bounce back from series losses to the Cardinals, Braves and Pirates over the last week and a half.

Cubs In Dire Need Of Offense Amidst Slide

Nico Hoerner leads the Cubs with 47 hits, 12 doubles and a .264 batting average while Christopher Morel has a team-high 9 home runs and 33 RBIs. Michael Busch has 7 homers with 21 RBIs but also has the unfortunate distinction of leading the Cubs with 64 strikeouts as well this season. Cody Bellinger also has 7 homers and 23 RBIs as well this season.

Why the Chicago Cubs will win

  • The Brewers have lost four of their last five games as favorites against the Cubs following a home win.
  • The underdogs have won four of the Brewers' last five games.
  • The Brewers have failed to cover the run line in each of their last eight Tuesday home games against NL Central opponents.
  • The Cubs have covered the run line in 18 of their last 20 games as road underdogs against National League opponents following a loss.

Milwaukee Brewers Recap

The Milwaukee Brewers come into this game looking to build some momentum after starting the series right with their win over the Cubs. The win puts the Brewers within touching distance of back-to-back series wins after knocking off the Boston Red Sox over the weekend.

Brewers Heating Up At The Dish

William Contreras leads the Brewers with 70 hits including 15 doubles and 43 RBIs along with 8 home runs and a .402 OBP while Rhys Hoskins has a team-high 9 home runs with 27 RBIs and Willy Adames has a team-high 16 doubles with 8 home runs and 35 RBIs. Brice Turang leads the Brewers with 19 stolen bases while Adames has a team-high 50 strikeouts as well this season.

Why the Milwaukee Brewers will win

  • The Cubs have lost seven of their last eight games after playing the previous day.
  • The Brewers have won five of their last six night games against NL Central opponents.
  • The Cubs have failed to cover the run line in 14 of their last 16 games after playing the previous day.
  • The Brewers have covered the run line in each of their last four games.
  • The Cubs have trailed after 3 innings in each of their last four night games against NL Central opponents.

Chicago Cubs vs Milwaukee Brewers Prediction

I’m on the Brewers here. I just can’t back the Cubs right now in the midst of this current slide as they’re struggling against right-handed pitching and I have to think that Freddy Peralta wants some get back after losing to the Cubs earlier this month. The Brewers have just flat out been the better team up to this point and I don’t feel like this is the right spot to step in front of that. Give me the Brewers in this one.
