Chicago Cubs vs. Milwaukee Brewers MLB Prediction:
The Brewers did not play great in their last series against the Tigers. I look for them to bounce back against the Cubs.
Milwaukee is the better team and these are teams they should take care of. I do not have much confidence backing Chicago here.
It will be hard for Burnes to pitch better than he did last time where he did not allow a hit, but I still think he will be very effective.
I am taking the Brewers here.
