Prediction:

For this matchup, we predict that the Chicago Cubs will win. Here's why:

The Cubs have had success against Freddy Peralta earlier this season, which gives them confidence heading into this game. Ben Brown has been solid on the mound, and his recent performances suggest he can hold the Brewers' offense in check.

Offensively, the Cubs have power hitters like Christopher Morel and consistent batters like Mike Tauchman. The Brewers, despite their good record, have shown vulnerability at times, particularly against division rivals.

The Cubs are motivated to break their current losing streak, and their familiarity with Peralta’s pitching could be a key factor in this game.

Pick: Chicago Cubs Moneyline
