Cubs vs Brewers Betting Pick
This game will be played at Miller Park at 4:10 PM ET on Monday, July 4, 2022.
Why Bet The Cubs:
✅ The Brewers Eric Lauer struggled mightily in June, allowing 21 earned runs in 27.2 innings. The left-hander has allowed three earned runs in five straight starts, allowing eight homeruns over his last four games. That includes back-to-back contests where he allowed three homers in the game.
✅ The Cubs saw their four-game winning streak come to an end on Sunday, when they lost to the Boston Red Sox, 4-2. However, Chicago has been scoring runs in bunches lately, scoring 43 over their last seven games.
✅ The Cubs Justin Steele pitched very well and Joan. In five June starts he allowed a single earned run in three of those five outings and gave up 10 total runs in 29.2 innings.
The Cubs may already be looking forward to next season, but they are playing some of their best baseball right now, going 6-4 and their last 10. That includes winning their last three series, including victories over the St. Louis Cardinals and Boston Red Sox.
Pitching has been a major concern for this team, especially on the road where they have a 5.11 ERA. They have given up the third most amount of homeruns on the road (56) and have a 1.39 road WHIP, fifth worst. The team pitching staff has been much better over the last week, posting a 3.54 ERA, 10th best, and have allowed just five home runs and 56.0 innings pitched.
The Brewers are playing very well of late as well, going 7-3 in their last 10. They are only 19-15 at home this season and have really struggled at Miller Park since the beginning of June, going 4-12 in their last 16 home contests.
The offense has been a staple for this Brewers team all season, as they are 10th in runs per game (4.74) and eighth in OPS (.735). The pitching has been solid at Miller Park, posting a 3.55 ERA.
