Kyle Hendricks and Brandon Woodruff square off for the 2nd time in less than a week when the Cubs and Brewers meet up in Milwaukee on Tuesday night. The Brew Crew won that game 4-2 last Wednesday.
The Brewers took 2 of 3 at Wrigley Field last week, and are in a good spot to repeat that after a 6-3 win on Monday night. Milwaukee got all of their runs in one frame, as the Cubs offense continues to struggle.
Tuesday’s betting total is just 7.5, and it’s not just because the usually sharp Kyle Hendricks is on the mound. The Cubs offense is impossible to watch right now, ranking in the bottom three in BA, OPS, and runs/game.
One of the few bright spots for Chicago this year is Kris Bryant, who had a HR in Monday’s loss. That’s really about it though for a Cubs team that managed just 4 hits while dropping their third straight game.
To give you an idea just how bad the Cubs are so far this year, the Pirates are 3-7 on the season with al three wins coming against Chicago. The Brewers have taken the last three in the series by a combined score of 14-5.
Basically it all comes down to Hendricks (0-1, 3.00 ERA) keeping this one close and just hoping for a random hit here or there to try and get a 3-2 win. That’s where the Cubs offense sits at this point.
Milwaukee’s strategy for 2021 of relying on pitching and defense seems to be working, as they are just 0.5 GB from the Cardinals in the Central. That implies there’s no Brewers offense, which is dead wrong.
Craig Counsell’s team just wrapped up Saturday and Sunday wins in St. Louis by a combined score of 18-8. Their 6-3 win over the Cubs on Monday marks 24 runs tallied in the last three total.
The Brewers got Monday’s win even without Christian Yelich and Kolten Wong in the lineup for various ailments. Wong will be out, but Yelich (back) is questionable. The more bats the merrier, as Hendricks had a 1.08 ERA vs. Milwaukee last season and threw 6.0 IP of shutout ball last week.
Woodruff welcomes the putrid Chicago offense to American Family field, after carrying a no-hitter vs. the Cubs into the 6th in last week’s game. Woodruff ended up allowing 1 hit over 7.0 IP in that game.

- Under is 13-5 in Brewers last 18 overall
Free Chicago Cubs vs. Milwaukee Brewers MLB Prediction:
The betting total for Tuesday’s game has submarined at 7.5, but to be honest there may be no scoring until the 6th or 7th inning at least. Hendricks will master Brewers batters again, but the Cubs offense will not provide any relief.
What you don’t like in this game is that it could go into extra innings like the last outing between Hendricks and Woodruff. That may add some extra runs when the under looked solid, but ultimately probably not.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Under 7.5
Chicago tacking on runs late to get a cheap ‘over’ would require them hitting against the Milwaukee bullpen. Take your chances on the gloves and not the bats in that situation.
