Why you should back the Brewers

Milwaukee returns home from a 4-2 road trip during which it won two at Tampa Bay before splitting a four-game series at Pittsburgh. The Brewers’ offense has been clicking of late, producing 32 runs in the set against the Pirates and 57 over their last eight overall contests. They only needed a pair on Sunday, and Omar Narvaez provided them in the fifth inning with his third homer of the season and first since May 9 at Cincinnati.

Eric Lauer (6-3, 4.02 ERA) will be making his third start of the year against the Cubs and second at home. The 27-year-old left-hander was superb in the first turn, allowing just one run and five hits while registering 11 strikeouts over seven innings en route to a victory. Lauer has posted a 2.25 ERA over five starts at home this year and has held Pittsburgh’s current hitters to a combined .183 batting average during his career.

Why you should back the Cubs

Chicago has been getting solid production of late from Patrick Wisdom, who leads the team with 17 home runs and 45 RBIs. The 30-year-old third baseman has gone deep three times and driven in eight runs over his last four contests after notching just one RBI in his previous six games. Nico Hoerner has hit safely in 10 of his last 11 outings, registering seven multi-hit performances during that stretch.

Justin Steele is riding a six-start unbeaten streak during which he has posted a pair of victories and yielded three runs or fewer on five occasions. The 26-year-old southpaw picked up the win against Cincinnati on Wednesday after giving up just one run while notching six strikeouts over six frames. Steele had one of his best outings of 2022 versus the Brewers on Apr. 9, when he scattered four hits over five scoreless innings en route to victory in his season debut.
