The Milwaukee Brewers vs. the Chicago Cubs will clash from the famous Wrigley Field on Friday afternoon for game one of this series. Who's going to take game one? Matt McCuen answers.

Chicago Cubs vs Milwaukee Brewers Prediction: Can Hunter Renfroe and the Brewers Get To Keegan Thompson?

The Milwaukee Brewers vs. the Chicago Cubs will clash from the famous Wrigley Field on Friday afternoon for game one of this series. As gamblers, it is so vital to have the Cubs play at home on a Friday. Without a Cubs home game on Friday, we would have no sports to gamble on until the night. So this is a great start to our weekend already, just the fact that we get to bet on this game today. We have been red hot as of late, and I found another winner for us here. Let's get into my prediction, pick, and odds for the Brewers vs Cubs game.

Cubs vs Brewers Line Movement

Chicago Cubs vs Milwaukee Brewers Prediction

The Brewers look up and find themselves on the outside looking in at the moment. They got off to a good start and led in the NL Central for the majority of the year until the last two weeks or so. Many people questioned the move from the Brewers when they dealt all-star closer, Josh Hader at the deadline, but as of right now, it looks like they might have seen something the league did not when they traded him. Hader has been brutal since being traded to the Padres. The Brewers will need to heat up and win games like today against teams that will not be playoff teams.

The Cubs know that they will not be a postseason team but would love to play spoiler against one of their rivals here today. The Cubs are in rebuild mode and are excited about the future of this team. Today we will see Keegan Thompson get the ball for the Cubbies being opposed by South Paw Aaron Ashby. 

I will be backing the Brewers to kick off the weekend. Look, these are games that they need to win and should come out with much more focus in this game today. The Cubs season is over while the Brewers are playing for a lot more.

The line here is also a Brewers read to me as Ashby is just 2-10 this year yet is a -140 road favorite today. I think that Ashby will turn in a solid outing and that the Brewers' offense can get things rolling. They should be able to feed off a good offensive day yesterday against the Dodgers. Thompson has been up and down all season, so if they can get to him early, they should be able to cruise to a win today. Let’s stay hot, and happy Friday!
