There is one MLB pick tonight.
Take Milwaukee Brewers (-102) on the ML against Chicago Cubs risking 3.06% to win 3%.
(Lester and Suter must start for wager to have action.)
This could be one of the more interesting series in the early part of the season as the Chicago Cubs square off with the Milwaukee Brewers in the first game of a four-game series. For those who remember, it was the Milwaukee Brewers who sat atop the NL Central for much of the season, before being bested by the Cubs. There is no question that the Brewers players' have not forgotten that fact and will be looking for revenge in Game 1 tonight.
The Chicago Cubs haven't started the season out as they had hoped. They have struggled on the offensive side of the ball. They have scored just 19 total runs through their first 5 games and 19 of those runs came in just two matchups. They have been shutout in back-to-back games and could struggle once again tonight.
Pitching has also been somewhat of a concern thus far of the Cubs and Jon Lester may be starting to show his age. He was roughed up in his first start of the season, failing to get out of the third inning. We have seen Lester in the past be erratic and that has typically lasted over multiple starts. Meanwhile, the Brewers will send Brent Suter to the mound and while Suter is unlikely to overpower the Cubs lineup, he has had success against the in the past. He has also been a tough out at Miller Park dating back to last season and should have enough success on the mound tonight to give his team a chance at the victory.
This should be an entertaining ball game, but we must give the edge to the Brewers in this contest. They have been playing the better ball in the early part of the season and we'll look for them to keep it going and pick up a big win over their division rivals tonight.
