Money Line: +108 Chi Cubs
The Brewers are a hot team that has won five straight games, but I think that has led to them being over-priced against the Cubs here today. They will be starting Hiram Burgos on the hill today, who has a great track record in the minor leagues but a year ago was throwing in single A ball. Even though the Cubs aren't great offensively, they are a big jump from the competition Burgos has been facing.
Edwin Jackson was touched up the first time he faced Milwaukee this year for five runs on eight hits and five walks. That should increase his focus to make amends for that performance. He actually has done well against the Brewers in the past, and last year threw 15 innings against them while giving up just a single run.
The Cubs are scoring only 3.6 runs per game, but they are putting up 4.5 against right-handed starters. This is a game where Chicago shows some value and is worth a look as a small dog.
