Milwaukee Brewers Fantasy Spin

Ben Gamel went 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles as the Brewers topped the Cubs on Saturday afternoon. Gamel singled and scored a run in the opening inning, which proved to be the difference in the ballgame. With the three-hit attack, he's now hitting .250/.334/.388 with seven homers and 29 RBI.

Chicago Cubs Fantasy Spin

Anthony Rizzo (back) went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles in his return to the lineup Saturday. He had missed the last five games with a back issue. As a team, the Cubs tallied only six hits as they were shut out by Zach Davies and company. With the two-hit effort, Rizzo is now hitting .292/.403/.526 with 25 homers and 82 RBI.

MLB Betting Trends


The Brewers are 2-5 in their last seven games following a win, providing a small glimpse of how inconsistent they have been in the second half.


The Cubs had their four-game winning streak snapped on Saturday but are still 41-20 in their last 61 games at Wrigley Field.


Despite yesterday’s 2-0 victory, the Brewers are still only 1-6 in their last seven games played at Wrigley and are just 1-5 in their last six games versus the Cubs overall. Milwaukee has dropped four of Gio Gonzalez’s last five starts versus the rest of the National League Central and is 3-9 in its last 12 road games when facing an opponent with a winning record. Meanwhile, the Cubs are unbeaten in Yu Darvish’s last four home starts and are 8-2 in their last 10 games after allowing two runs or less in their previous contest.

The Pick: Chicago Cubs -1.5 (+125)
