Chicago Cubs vs Milwaukee Brewers 7/4/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Chicago Cubs will go against the Milwaukee Brewers in MLB action in American Family Field, WI, on Monday, July 4, 2022, at 4:10 PM ET.

 

The Cubs narrowly missed extending their unbeaten run to five on Sunday with an 11-inning loss after pulling off two upsets against Boston in an interleague clash of legendary organizations.

 

Willson Contreras’ RBI single in the first inning gave the offense the lead, but the offense didn’t strike again until Patrick Wisdom’s game-tying solo shot in the eighth, and it was unable to do so in the extra frames either.

 

The Cubs’ offense was not a problem; they averaged a respectable 4.42 runs per game on a.727 team OPS. However, when it comes to their pitching, the Cubs are baseball’s fifth-worst team with a 4.79 team ERA, including a mark of 4.55 from their bullpen.

 

After defeating the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday, Justin Steele is poised to make his 16th appearance of the season seeking another victory.

 

On that day, he gave up one run on 6 hits, 3 walks, and 6 strikeouts across five or more innings. The 26-year-old pitched 69.2 innings and has a record of 3-5 with a 4.39 ERA. He is vying for a long-term job in the rotation.

 

  • The Chi Cubs are 4-1 SU in their last 5 matches. 
  • The Chi Cubs are 6-14 SU in their last 20 matches against Milwaukee. 
  • The Chi Cubs are 3-9 SU in their last 12 matches on the road.

Chicago Cubs vs Milwaukee Brewers Predictions 7/4/2022

 

Milwaukee’s chances of contending this season will depend on getting All-Star pitcher Brandon Woodruff back to full health, and he had one of his greatest starts of the year in the season finale on Sunday against Pittsburgh.

 

The only runs of the game were scored by Omar Narvaez’s two-run home run in the top of the fifth inning, and the Brewers won despite collecting only five hits.

 

The Brewers’ most threatening hitter is Rowdy Tellez, who has a.807 OPS, 16 home runs, and 53 RBI. Despite losing some time on the IL, Adames is still having a solid season with a.759 OPS, 16 home runs, and 45 RBI.

 

For the fifteenth time this season, Eric Lauer is set to take the mound. He hopes to build on his strong performance, which saw him finish 6-3 with a 4.02 ERA and an 80:25 K:BB ratio over 78.1 innings.

 

The 27-year-old slowed down recently; on Wednesday, he pitched only 4.1 innings against the Tampa Bay Rays, surrendering three runs on 6 hits, 2 walks, and 3 strikeouts.

 

  • The total went OVER in 8 of Milwaukee’s previous 10 matches. 
  • The Brewers are 6-2 SU in their previous 8 matches. 
  • The total went OVER in 10 of Milwaukee’s last 14 matches against the Chi Cubs.

Chicago Cubs vs Milwaukee Brewers. The MLB pick for this game is the Milwaukee Brewers. The Brewers stabilized after struggling for all of June, and their offense started to pick up some steam to go along with their strong pitching staff.

 

They should be able to produce a lot against one of MLB’s weakest staff, and Lauer showed enough potential to be trusted in this situation.

 

Milwaukee’s season wRC+ of 104, which is excellent enough to back their pitching against a rebuilding club like Chicago but could yet be improved, puts them in a respectable 12th place.

 

The Brewers are back on track and provide value here against the Cubs at plus odds. The Milwaukee Brewers will win to a predicted score of 5-3.
