The Chicago Cubs and the Milwaukee Brewers meet Monday 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 Milwaukee Brewers vs Chicago Cubs Prediction.

Starting Pitching Matchup

The Chicago Cubs will send out Justin Steele here and Steele is 0-2 with a 5.68 ERA and 23 strikeouts this season. In his last five starts against the Brewers, Steele is 1-0 with a 1.23 ERA and 36 strikeouts. Robert Gasser will get the start for the Brewers here and is 2-0 with a 2.65 ERA and 6 strikeouts this season. This will be Gasser’s first career start against the Cubs.

Chicago Cubs Recap

The Chicago Cubs come into this one looking to rebound from a tough rain-shortened series against the St. Louis Cardinals over the weekend. The Cubs could use a positive result after series losses to the Braves and Pirates over the last week and a half.

Cubs Could Use Consistent Offense

Going into Sunday’s matchup, Nico Hoerner leads the Cubs with 45 hits, 12 doubles and a .263 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 63 strikeouts as well this season. Cody Bellinger also has 7 homers and 23 RBIs as well this season.

Milwaukee Brewers Recap

The Milwaukee Brewers come into this one looking to build on another series win after knocking off Boston over the weekend despite a 2-1 loss in Sunday’s series finale. The Brewers needed the series win after falling to the Marlins and Astros over the last week and a half.

Brewers Looking To Drum Up Offense Back At Home

William Contreras leads the Brewers with 69 hits including 15 doubles and 43 RBIs along with 8 home runs and a .405 OBP while Rhys Hoskins has a team-high 9 home runs with 27 RBIs and Willy Adames has a team-high 16 doubles with 7 home runs and 32 RBIs. Brice Turang leads the Brewers with 19 stolen bases while Adames has a team-high 50 strikeouts as well this season.

Milwaukee Brewers vs Chicago Cubs Prediction

I’m on the Brewers in this one. Justin Steele was a profitable pitcher for the Cubs last season, but he simply has not had it this season. The Brewers have been a strong road team, but even going back home, they’ve had a fair bit of success, especially when it comes to playing within the division. Robert Gasser had a tough time last time out, but he’s been solid in two home starts and this is just a tough schedule spot for the Cubs after Sunday night baseball. I’ll roll with the Brew Crew at home here.
