Heading into their matchup with the division-leading Cubs, the Brewers have lost three games in a row while their opponents, who sit 24 games ahead of Milwaukee in the standings, have won their last three.
The Brewers are 6-2 in their last 8 games after consecutive losses.
The Cubs are 11-2 in their last 13 games at home.
The Brewers are 4-20 in their last 24 games against the Cubs.
Zach Davies will handle the starting duties for the Brewers this afternoon as his team is charged with the task of facing Jake Arrieta. Davies has been decent in his first full year in the league posting a 9-5 record with a 3.80 era. He has owned the Cubs the first couple times he has seen them, limiting their current lineup to a .132 batting average.
Arrieta has thrust himself up the NL Cy Young ladder with three strong starts in a row and now owns a 14-5 record to go along with his 2.55 ERA. In his lone start against the Brew Crew this season, the reigning Cy Young winner allowed just three hits and one run in a 7-2 Cubs win.
The Cubs are huge favorites tonight so there is definitely some value in the Brewers tonight as they’ve been strong after consecutive losses.
