The Brewers and Cubs faceoff with each other late Saturday afternoon in Wrigley Field.
The Cubs just defeated the Brewers in a extra innings after coming back from a two run deficit in the ninth inning. They won in the bottom of the 10th via a walk-off homerun from Montero.
The Cubs have won four of their last six games while the Brewers have won two of their last three games after letting their last game slip away.
On the mound for the Brewers will be Zach Davies, he’s 10-7 with a 3.87 ERA and 1.23 WHIP.
Starting for the Cubs will be Jake Arrieta, he’s 17-6 with a 2.91 ERA and 1.05 WHIP.
The Brewers are 16 games below .500 and are long out of the playoff race.
They aren’t good offensively and aren’t good defensively either ranking 24th and 19th in the MLB respectively.
They are also horrible on the road, holding a 27-46 record in away games.
They’ve managed to win game one against the Cubs and had the lead going into the ninth in game two, so don’t ever count them out.
They have generated 16 runs in their last three games, so the bats are hot-ish.
With Zach Davies on the mound, the Brewers will feel confident to steal game three as well.
He gave up just one run over 7.1 innings in his last outing against the Cardinals and just eight runs over his last four starts. He’s lasted at least six innings in all four of those starts.
One of those starts came against the Cubs just 11 days ago, where he gave up just three over 6.2 innings but the Cubs did win that one 7-2.
The Cubs have already clinched their division with 15 games still remaining on their schedule.
They have the third best offensive production and best runs against in the MLB.
The run production has been consistent as of late too, they’ve scored 31 runs in their last six games.
Jake Arrieta has been shaky in his last three starts. He’s given up 12 runs in those three starts, which is well above what we have all come to expect from him.
He’s given up three runs or more in four of his last starts and gave up five or more twice.
His last outing was against the Astros and he lasted just 5.1 innings, giving up three runs. Not a horrible output but not a great output either.

Free Milwaukee Brewers vs. Chicago Cubs MLB Prediction:
When it comes to pitching, both teams have a pretty good starter on the mound, so naturally we wouldn’t expect this one to be high scoring.
However, Davies gave up seven over four innings the last time he was in Chicago and the Cubs offensive can be relentless.
Arrieta has struggled lately too so I’m going to go with the over
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Cubs -1.5 & Over 7
Davies has been pitching well and did well at home against the Cubs the last time he faced them but as mentioned above, he got lit up the last time he was at Wrigley.
The Cubs are scoring consistently and finding ways to put up runs when they need them.
The Brewers have been scoring consistently in their last three games and Arrieta has been struggling but the offense of the Cubs may prove to be too much.
MLB Free Score Prediction: Brewers 3 – Cubs 6
