MLB Betting Preview: Chicago Cubs vs. Milwaukee Brewers
August 29, 2023
The streaking Milwaukee Brewers look for their 10
straight win as they continue a very important series against the Chicago Cubs with the second game of the three-game set Tuesday evening at Wrigley Field in Chicago, Illinois.
They toss out the first pitch at 8:05 pm. The Brewers earned a 6-2 win on Monday night and have ripped off a sizzling nine straight wins overall. The Cubs are -130 in Tuesday's clash.
Milwaukee Brewers Betting Preview
The Brewers (74-57) have shown they are a very tough and scrappy team, and they have played very well this season as they lead the NL Central, with these same Cubs nipping at their heels.
The Brewers will not blow you away with their offense, but they are a very balanced offense that can score runs using the longball or they can manufacture runs too. They are starting to pull away from the Cubs and Monday's win was a nice start.
On offense, they are led by shortstop Willy Adames who has put forth a very strong season as he has clubbed 21 home runs while driving in 62 runs for the Brewers, who are hitting just .218 on the season as a club.
They will send out veteran Corbin Burnes who sports a mark of 9-6 to go along with an ERA of 3.65 on the season. He has fanned 160 hitters in 158 frames of work. The brewers as a whole have a team ERA of 3.99.
Chicago Cubs Betting Preview
The Cubs (69-62) looked like a dead team a month or so ago, but they have picked the best time over that span to play their best baseball of the season. They have played themselves right into contention in the division and if anything, they have also positioned themselves nicely for a playoff berth as a potential wild-card team. They sit five games behind Milwaukee.
They have a nice balanced attack on offense, as they have several sluggers who have cracked 15 or more home runs already. They are led on offense by
They will send out hurler Justin Steele who has compiled a wonderful record of 14-3 on the season to go along with an ERA of 2.80. He is pitching like a Cy Young candidate and has struck out a career-high 133 in 138 innings of work.
He needs to get ahead of the count and contain this red-hot lineup of the Brewers and give the Cubs at least six plus innings of work today.
