Cubs trying to get back on track

Chicago was hot to start the second half of the season, but hit a three-game skid over the last week. They are coming off a 4-1 win at San Francisco on Wednesday. Chicago is 55-47 on the season, 19-29 on the road and 51-48 with the under. The Cubs have Kyle Hendricks taking the mound today. He is 7-8 on the season with a 3.41 ERA.

The Cubs are pretty sound at the plate and on the mound this season. Chicago is averaging 5.04 runs per game while batting .254 as a team. On the mound, the Cubs post a 4.04 team ERA with a 1.31 team WHIP. Javier Baez has 27 doubles, 25 home runs and 68 RBI to lead the team while Anthony Rizzo has 22 doubles, 20 home runs and 69 RBI.

Brewers stay in the mix

Milwaukee has won six of its last nine to keep itself right in the thick of the postseason race. The Brewers are 54-50 on the season, 31-23 at home and 52-48 with the under. Milwaukee hands the ball to Gio Gonzalez tonight. He is 2-1 on the season with a 3.60 ERA.

The Brewers are middle of the road in hitting and pitching this season. The offense is putting up 4.90 runs per game while batting .249 as a team. On the mound, Milwaukee has a 4.66 team ERA with a 1.37 team WHIP. Christian Yelich is leading the team with 20 doubles, 35 home runs and 77 RBI. Mike Moustakas is adding 22 doubles, 26 home runs and 60 RBI.

MLB Betting Trends

Chicago

The Cubs are 6-1 in their last seven against NL Central opponents and 9-2 in their last 11 games following a day off.

Milwaukee

The Brewers are 3-9 in their last 12 series openers and 4-10 in their last 14 games against a right-handed starter.

Prediction:

Hendricks has been pretty consistent as of late, allowing two runs in four straight starts. Gonzales has given up 10 runs over his last three starts and hasn’t made it through six innings in each of his seven starts. Milwaukee isn’t the most reliable bullpen to turn to either, so I think it will be a rough go for the Brewers tonight against this Chicago lineup.

MLB Prediction: Chicago Cubs -115
