The Chicago Cubs and the Milwaukee Brewers will meet on Monday from Wrigley. All odds for all games can be found at Bovada sportsbook.
The Cubs have been out of the postseason race for a while now and the team is auditioning for spots on next year’s club. There are 3-7 in their last 10 games and are 26.5 games back in their division. Justin Germano will take the ball tonight for the Cubs and he has lost two of his last three starts. In 30 innings of work Germano is pitching to 5.40 ERA.
The Brewers are playing some of their best baseball so far this year, but it’s coming a little bit too late. They are 7-3 in their last 10 games and sit 16.5 games and back in the NL Central. Ryan Braun is again leading the way with a strong offensive season but the pitching staff has not been as effective as it was last season. Tonight the Brewers will start Marco Estrada who’s coming off of his first win of the season. Estrada has allowed 93 hits in 95 innings of work this season.
Chicago is 23-49 in their last 72 games as an underdog, 2-4 in their last six games against a team with a losing record, and 0-4 in their last four games against the NL Central. Milwaukee is 6-1 in their last seven games overall, 7-1 in their last eight games against the NL Central, and 0-6 in Estrada’s last six road starts. Milwaukee is 20-8 in the last 28 meetings of these two.
The Brewers are definitely the better team in this game and when two teams have losing records sometimes it is that easy to predict. Give us the Brewers as a moneyline
