Milwaukee is 4-2 in their last six home games, 21-7 in game three of series, and 8-2 in Lohse’s last 10 starts. Chicago is 2-4 in their last six games as an underdog, 17-35 in their last 52 road games, and 7-20 in Samardzjia’s last 27 starts. Chicago is 7-25 in their last 32 games against Milwaukee.
We have two pitchers who are on top of their games and I look for runs to be scarce so my free pick is the under. My stronger play is on the winning side and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
