Chicago Cubs vs. Milwaukee Brewers MLB Prediction:
I look for the Brewers to keep up their good play here. I have a hard time seeing them drop to the Cubs.
Milwaukee is the better team and these are teams they need to be able to beat. Especially when Chicago has pretty much mailed in the season.
I look for Lauer to be effective and for the Brewers to do enough against Sampson to get a win.
I like the Brewers as a home favorite here.
