Chicago Cubs at Milwaukee Brewers 4/7/18 Pick

Chicago Cubs at Milwaukee Brewers
Where: Miller Field
When: April 7, 2018 4PM EST
Moneyline: CUBS -143 / MIL +133
Over/Under: 8.5
By expert handicapper Rich Crew

The Cubs and the Brew Crew will take to the field this afternoon in the third game of the four-game set at Miller Park. The oddsmaker has set visiting Chicago as a -149 favorite over Milwaukee with an O/U line od 8.5 runs.

In the most recent match, the lead went back and forth with the Cubs assuming an early 2-0 lead before the Brewers got to starter Kyle Hendricks for four runs in the fifth. Chicago came back with two more in the sixth to tie it up until Orlando Arcia knocked in the winning run in the bottom of the ninth for the 5-4 Milwaukee win.

The win by the Brewers ended a mini two-game losing streak and the confidence-boosting five runs scored closed out a two-game scoreless run. The victory brought their home record this season to 2-3. The Cubs loss was their fourth on the season and third in the last four matches.

Pitching Match-Up

Cubs: The Cubs send out Yu Darvish who will be looking to rebound from a dismal outing in his opener where he allowed five runs in just 4 1/3 innings in Miami. Dating back to last season, the right-hander has been on an awful run in three starts allowing 13 runs over 7.2 innings! He has the one-lifetime start against Milwaukee, and that came last season at Miller Field where he went five innings allowing three runs giving up six hits and walking three.

Brewers: Zach Davies will look to rebound in his second start of the season. Davies was tagged with six earned runs in his opener versus the Cardinals giving up eight hits and one HR, but he didn’t walk a batter striking out six. He has had a ton of recent experience against the Cubs starting five games against them last season. He got off to a rocky start in his first outing against them charged with five runs over five innings but was stellar in his next four recording a QS in all.

Cubs at Brewers Prediction 4/7/2018

The Cubs Don't appear to have hit their stride yet offensively ranking in the bottom five of the NL in many team hitting statistics. Chicago starter Yu Darvish's form is questionable getting lit up in his last three trips to the mound, and Milwaukee starter Zach Davies pitched well enough to win in his last four versus the Cubs. The value in on the host Milwaukee in today's match-up.

How to Bet Baseball

Moneylines - The most common of baseball bets. Beautiful too, as they create a situation where you can win less than 50% of your bets and profit by betting underdogs!

Totals - The easiest wager to beat in all of sports betting. There's a reason why sportsbooks have lower limits on over/under bets!

Runlines - A wager that creates a point spread where a team is either -1.5 runs or +1.5 runs. Underdog run lines are a great bet for game in which you predict a slim margin. Favorite moneylines pay well and are great bets for potential blowouts.

Alternative Runlines - Turn a favorite into a +2.5 underdog! Turn an underdog into a -2.5 run favorite. You better know what you're doing before betting these lines or your bankroll will resemble the action of a craps table.

Parlays - This type of bet is the reason many bookies drive cadillacs. Big risk; big payouts!

Prop Bets - Similar to totals, these are easy to beat if you do your homework. Avoid the ones that look easy though as they're surely sucker bets.

Futures - A great bet for recreational bettors who only want to spend a few bucks and have something to root for all season. There's a big payout if you're right!

Season Wins - Bet on teams to go over or under the posted total. Fading public opinion can make you money with this type of wager. Especially with public teams.
