Milwaukee Brewers vs. Chicago Cubs MLB Prediction:
The Brewers have been playing very well, while the Cubs have been struggling. I see that continuing in this game.
Milwaukee is the better team and I look for them to show that on Thursday. They should not lose to teams like the Cubs. One stat that stood out to me is the Cubs are 0-8 in their last 8 home games.
I look for the Brewers to do enough against Hendricks in this one to get a win. He is a tough pitcher, but I believe they will be able to hit him.
I will go with the Brewers on the run line.
