Mike Lundin‘s Brewers vs. Cubs Free Pick
Start Time: April 18, 2017, 8:05 PM
The Chicago Cubs (6-7) are suffering from a massive World Champion hangover and they enter Tuesday’s contest as losers of four straight following a 6-3 loss to Milwaukee last night. The Brew Crew meanwhile have won six of their last seven to improve to 8-6 on the season and they’re 6-1 on the road.
Tonight right-hander Jimmy Nelson (1-0, 1.38 ERA) takes the ball for Milwaukee. He’s just 1-6 in 13 career games (11 starts) versus Chicago, but he’s posted a respectable 3.49 ERA in those contests. He’s been excellent in both his starts this season, striking out 13 while allowing only two runs on nine hits and a pair of walks through 13 innings of work.
The Cubs turn to left-hander Brett Anderson (1-0, 0.84 ERA) who has had an excellent star to the season as well, allowing only eight hits and five walks in 10 2/3 innings over his two starts. We can however note that the Brewers are 6-2 in their last eight road games vs. a left-handed starter and 7-3 in the last 10 meetings with the Cubs.
Milwaukee is playing great baseball at the moment, Chicago is not. No need to overthink this; take the insurance run on the hotter team at a reasonable price.
