MLB Baseball Gambling Total:
The Milwaukee Brewers come into this game after sweeping the San Diego Padres and they will now look to carry that momentum into this series when they travel to Wrigley Field to take on the Cubs in Chicago.
The Brewers were not expected to be all that good here in 2021, but they represent yet another one of these teams who has surprised early on. They do get the Chicago Cubs at the right time as well, as the Cubs have not yet found their stride and the Brewers, the way they are playing right now, could do plenty of damage in this series.
A big reason for the turn around has been the level of pitching that they are getting, particularly from their starting rotation, as this team now has 9 total quality starts and that ranks them in 2nd place in all of baseball.
Given their current pitching unit, you wonder how far this team could go if their bats actually get going at some point, as they are only hitting .209 and have an on base percentage of under .300 which is just not going to get the job done, as the level of pitching is unsustainable in the long run.
The Cubs have not looked all that impressive thus far this year, but they are coming into this game off of the back of a pretty incredible 16-4 victory over the Mets, so we will see if a performance like that can act as a catalyst to really kick start this season.
It has been both sides of the ball for the Cubs which have not looked great with the starting rotation not registering a single quality start up to this point, and the bats ranking towards the bottom of the league in terms of important offensive statistics.
The Cubs offense has been really concentrated between three guys as well with Baez, Contreras and Bryant all having 5 home runs each and they account for the vast majority of the offense so far this year.
Free Milwaukee Brewers vs. Chicago Cubs MLB Prediction:
Brett Anderson is pitching here for the Milwaukee Brewers and he, like the rest of this pitching unit in 2021, has looked absolutely fantastic and I just do not trust the Cubs ability to put up many runs in this spot.
On the other hand the Brewers have relied heavily on their pitching unit and have not started the season well with the bat and with Kyle Hendricks on the mound for the Cubs, I also believe he can have a good start.
Even though the total is a bit low in this spot, it is just too tough for me to see this when getting over the total given the batting units and the pitching matchups they face and so I am rolling with the under in this contest.
