Milwaukee Brewers Fantasy Spin

Mike Moustakas launched his ninth homer Wednesday in Milwaukee’s win over the Nationals. Jeremy Hellickson proved no match for Moustakas, who burned him for a two-run blast in the second inning. The Moose wasn’t finished, later adding a one-out double in the sixth. The 30-year-old also scored on an Eric Thames double in the first after reaching on an error by Anthony Rendon. Wednesday extended Moustakas' hitting streak to seven games.

Chicago Cubs Fantasy Spin

Anthony Rizzo went 2-for-4 and hit his 10th homer Thursday in the Cubs' 4-1 win over the Marlins. Rizzo has seven homers in his last 15 games after batting .197 with three homers in his first 20 games of the year. He's all of the way up to .260/.380/.557 overall

MLB Betting Trends


The Brewers are 4-1 in their last five games against the Cubs.


The Cubs are 20-6 in Jose Quintana’s last 26 home starts.


The under has been incredibly profitable when these two teams meet in Chicago, cashing in 10 of the last 11 meetings at Wrigley Field. The under is also 25-8 in the last 33 meetings between these two teams overall, which is remarkable when you consider that both teams play in hitter-friendly parks (at least when the wind isn’t blowing in at Wrigley). The under is also 4-0 in Quintana’s last four home starts against the Brewers and is 7-3 in his last 10 outings versus Milwaukee overall.

The Pick: Brewers/Cubs UNDER 8
