(MLB) Chi Cubs vs. Milwaukee, 07/04/2022 4:10 PM, Score: 2 - 5
Money Line: -144.00 Milwaukee (Home)
Result: Win
T.M. Selection: Milwaukee Brewers.

I like the Milwaukee Brewers to win this game against the Chicago Cubs on Monday. The Brewers have looked really good in their games lately. They have won 6/8 of their previous 8 games and have been on a road trip for a lot of those games. They are back in their own ballpark here and I think they will continue playing well here with another win over a team that hasn't been great this year. The Cubs just beat up on some bad teams winning 4 in a row and they even won their series over the Red Sox who have been good lately but they lost their most recent game in extra innings and I think the Brewers are on a roll here so I expect them to beat the Cubs in their own ballpark. Justin Steele (3-5, 4.39 ERA) is up for the Cubs here and he hasn't been great this year. He has had some bad starts as of late, his 1st start this year was against the Brewers and he pitched great in that game but he has faced them 2 more times since that start and hasn't looked good in either game. I think the Brewers are going to put up some runs on him here and their offense has been really good lately too. Eric Lauer (6-3, 4.02 ERA) is up for the Brewers here and he hasn't been great this year either but he has been pitching a lot better over his 4 previous starts and I expect him to continue improving in this game too with an even better start. I think he will do enough here to keep the Cubs from putting up a lot of runs and the Brewers offense has been hot so I expect them to score runs here. I like the Brewers to win this game.

T.M. Prediction: 6-2 Brewers.
