BETCRIS MLB BETTING ODDS Cubs vs. Brewers

MLB Games of the Week feature the San Francisco Giants at the Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday on FS1 and the Chicago Cubs at the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday on TBS. These are two great rivalry matchups, as the Giants and Dodgers are big NL West rivals, while the Cubs and Brewers are NL Central rivals. The battle between the Cubs and Brewers has added meaning this season, as both teams are competing for the top spot in the division. Let’s look at both games and MLB picks.

Giants vs. Dodgers ATS Picks

The Giants are having a very poor season but they always seem to be a thorn against the Dodgers. San Francisco is in last place in the NL Central, while the Dodgers are in first place. San Francisco should be sending Ty Blach in this game, while the Dodgers go with Hyun-Jin Ryu who is taking the place of the injured Clayton Kershaw in the Los Angeles rotation.

Giants vs. Dodgers TV Coverage: FS1

The Giants were just 18-34 in their first 52 road games, with 27 games going over, 19 going under, with six pushes. They are scoring 3.9 runs per game and giving up 4.7 per contest.

The Dodgers were 41-13 in their first 44 home games, with 26 games going over, 26 going under, with two pushes. They are scoring 5.1 runs per game and giving up 3.2 per contest.

Probable Pitching Matchup

Blach is 6-6 on the season with a 4.50 ERA. He started off really well for the Giants but he has struggled of late and last time out against San Diego he gave up five runs and eight hits in seven innings. He has faced the Dodgers twice this season and allowed just 3 runs in 12 innings.

Hyun-Jin Ryu is 3-6 on the season with a 4.21 ERA. His last start was against the Angels in late June, as he allowed two runs in 5.2 innings. He did start against the Giants earlier this season and allowed one run in six innings.

Key Stat

The Giants had taken six of the last ten against the Dodgers before this series began with two of the last three going over. Los Angeles had taken six of the last ten at home with three of the last four going over.

Giants vs. Dodgers Score Prediction: Giants 4, Dodgers 3

Cubs vs. Brewers ATS Picks

The Brewers had a solid lead in the NL Central at the All-Star break but since that time they have collapsed and the Cubs have surged. The Cubs have looked more like defending World Series champs lately so this is a huge series for Milwaukee to prove they are still contenders.

Cubs vs. Brewers TV Coverage: TBS

The Cubs were 25-25 in their first 50 road games, with 21 games going over, 28 going under, with one push. They are scoring 4.7 runs per game and giving up 4 runs per contest.

The Brewers were 28-24 in their first 52 home games, with 28 games going over, 23 going under, with one push. They are scoring 4.8 runs per game and giving up 4.1 per contest.

Probable Pitching Matchup

The Cubs should be sending John Lackey in this game, while the Brewers go with Zach Davies. Lackey is 6-9 on the seasons with a 5.04 ERA, while Davies is 11-4 with a 4.76 ERA. Lackey faced the Brewers earlier this season and gave up 4 runs in 6 innings. Davies has faced the Cubs twice this season and allowed 7 runs in 11 innings.

Key Stat

The teams had split their last ten meetings before this series began with the last eight going over the total. They had split their last ten in Milwaukee with five of the last seven going over.

Cubs vs. Brewers Free Picks

Neither Lackey nor Davies inspires any confidence and the trends point to a high scoring game, so I will go over the total. Make sure to check back for game odds at BetCris.
