The Brewers are the surprise leader in the NL Central so this series has a little more juice than expected. The Brewers may not be able to hit for average but they can mash. They lead the Majors in homers and have lots of speed too.
They are making pitchers be very careful with them for sure.
No starter has been announced yet but it might not matter much. Milwaukee is last in the Majors in quality starts.
The bullpen is packed with power arms, most of whom you have never heard about.
Don’t rush on this play but don’t run away from it right now either.
The Cubs have yet to find their stride as defending champs. They are just over .500 and maybe this series gets them going with Milwaukee coming to town. Rookie Ian Happ has delivered since getting called up.
He is next in line among the great young players they have.
Eddie Butler was probably happy to get out of Colorado (though the Rox are in first place right now). He has made just one start for the Cubs this season and was good – 6IP, 2H 0ER at St. Louis.
Their pitching has not been as good as it was a year ago though and I doubt that he is the answer. Don’t overvalue him just because of the team. .

Cubbies will probably be the favorite in this spot but they are -6 units in that role this season. Not an auto fade but you have to look closely to make sure you are getting good value.
