Milwaukee Brewers Fantasy Spin

Ryan Braun launched a solo home run in Friday's victory over the Cubs. Braun belted a no-doubt shot off of Jose Quintana deep into the left-center field bleachers in the fourth inning. He also drew a walk and scored an additional run. Braun is 13-for-29 with three homers so far this month, although nearly half of those hits came in last weekend's 18-inning game versus the Mets.

Chicago Cubs Fantasy Spin

Addison Russell doubled for his first hit of the season and also added a single Friday against the Brewers. Russell slashed an opposite-field two-bagger in the seventh inning, but Christian Yelich was able to cut the ball off and keep a run from scoring. He's started two of three games at second base since his recall following his domestic violence suspension and has been in the No. 8 spot in the lineup. Playing two of every three games is probably about the most Russell can hope for, as Javy Baez will be the everyday shortstop and the Cubs have other mouths to feed at second.

MLB Betting Trends

Milwaukee

The Brewers are 6-2 in Zach Davies’ last eight starts.

Chicago

The Cubs are 5-1 in Cole Hamels’ last six outings.

Prediction:

The Cubs have been profitable following a loss, winning seven of their last eight games coming off a defeat in their previous game. Davis’ xFIP sits at 4.97 and with a low strikeout rate (15.9%), this is an exploitable matchup for Chicago’s offense. The Cubs are also 20-7 in their last 27 games overall so they’re equally as hot as their counterparts today. After getting shutout on Friday, I’m expecting a nice rebound for the Cubs this afternoon.

The Pick: Chicago Cubs -142
