Chicago Cubs Form
The Cubs beat the Brewers on Monday and now they are on the top spot in the National League Central. The Cubs will aim to stay there. The Cubs are in a very good form as they won 12 of their last 15 games. It seems that these games against the Brewers will be crucial as they and the Cardinals are the main rivals for the top spot in the Division. The Cubs won the game on Monday with a score of 7-2. Also, it is worth to note that their offence was the key element in that win. The Cubs have averaged 5.23 runs per game and have allowed 3.07 runs per game on the road so far.

Milwaukee Brewers Form
The Milwaukee Brewers were at the top of the National League Central before the game on Monday. However, the loss of 7-2 put the Chicago Cubs in the first place. The Brewers are having a bad record against the Cubs lately as they lost eight of the nine meetings with the Cubs so far. It seems that Milwaukee is having some notable problems with their offence and they will need to improve on that front in order to get something out of this game. The Brewers have averaged 4.24 runs per game and have allowed 4.14 runs per game here at home so far. Chase Anderson record against the Cubs he has gone 3-4 with a 3.33 ERA in nine starts.

It seems that the Brewers are having some issues with the offensive capabilities lately. On the other side, it seems that the Cubs are unstoppable and they showed that on Monday as they trashed the Brewers with a score of 7-2. They were very solid on the mound and their offence was at a high level. Based on the current form of the two teams, I expect that the Cubs will get another win in this series. Go for the Cubs in this game.
