Quick turnaround for the Cubs who played last night and their offense continues to come up short. The Brewers have had success against the Cubs in recent meetings, the offense is coming off a solid series against the Rockies and Peralta has been highly impressive this season. I have to side with the Brewers and the reasonable price at home.
