The Cubs will try to salvage a split when they meet up with Milwaukee to wrap up a 4-game series on Sunday. Things got off to a great start for Chicago in a 10-5 win on Thursday, but they have since dropped a 1-7 and a 2-3 contest to their division foes.
Saturday’s loss put the Cubs to 3.5 GB from the Cardinals for the division lead. Chicago has now dropped 4 of the last 6 vs. Milwaukee after being beaten by the Brewers in 2 of 3 games last weekend at Wrigley Field.
Jon Lester goes for Chicago on Sunday but he is as big of a question mark as anybody in the Chicago rotation.
The left-hand veteran did have a nice game last time out, holding Seattle scoreless over 6.0 IP. Lester is showing signs of turning things around after holding 3 of the last 4 opponents to just 1 ER total. He hasn’t allowed a run to Milwaukee in two starts this season.
What Chicago is facing is some injury concerns. Javy Baez may miss the rest of the season with a hairline fracture in his thumb. Willson Contreras could also be a GTD for Sunday’s series wrap-up.
The Brewers are in a great spot to take 3 of 4 from Chicago and 5 of the last 7. A win Sunday will inch them closer to the 3 game deficit they currently have against the Cubs for the 2nd wild card spot.
With Chicago having some players hurt, Milwaukee definitely has the offensive advantage for Saturday. That’s especially true behind Yasmani Grandal who has hit HR in 3 of the last 4 games. Christian Yelich is also 5 for his last 7.
The Brewers counter Lester on the mound with Adrian Houser. The right-hander has allowed just 1 ER in each of his last 5 starts but has a 5.59 ERA vs. Chicago in 4 starts this season.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Cubs are 6-2 last 8 road games
- Cubs are 4-1 in Lester’s last 5 starts
- Brewers are 1-5 last 6 Sunday games
- Brewers are 1-4 in Houser’s last 5 starts
Free Chicago Cubs vs. Milwaukee Brewers MLB Prediction:
this series has essentially turned into Chicago trying to steal one on Sunday. That’s very well possible with Lester making another quality start but Houser has been equally good for the Brewers in his last 5.

Chicago’s injuries don’t help their offense here.
