Run Line, MIL Brewers @ CHI Cubs
CHI Cubs Win -1.5
Best Odds

The Cubs have looked like one of the best teams in baseball through the early part of the season and they’ll have a good chance to keep winning on Thursday. The Brewers have been abysmal on offense and they’ve struggled against Cubs starter Yu Darvish. The veteran has started six games against Milwaukee during his career, compiling a 2.32 ERA along the way. Sure he has struggled a bit at Wrigley Field, but it’s not like he should be very scared of the Brewers’ offense. The Cubs offense has also establish itself as one of the top lineups in the league thanks to a .767 OPS and their 5.1 runs per game. They’ll have another chance to tee off on Thursday, as Brett Anderson has been knocked around when pitching at Wrigley. Anderson has six career starts in Chicago and he’s allowed 22 earned runs in 23.1 innings pitched (8.49 ERA). There’s little chance he doesn’t get punished on Thursday.
