Brewers vs Cubs Predictions

Doc's Sports

Tony Sink, of Doc's Sports, is taking the Brewers to pull off the upset and close out the series with a win. Sink notes that Milwaukee has hit 67 home runs thus far, and the Brewers' explosive offense could propel them to victory Sunday night.

On the other hand, Anthony Rome, of TheSpread.com, is taking the Cubs to win here. Rome argues that the Cubs are really effective with Lester on the mound, winning five of his last six starts against the Brewers.

Winners and Whiners

The staff at Winners and Whiners is also picking the Cubs to win here. Winners and Whiners believes that the Brewers' starter Jhoulys Chacin has really struggled thus far, posting a 5.03 ERA through eight starts. The difference between Chacin and Lester could give the Cubs a real advantage here.

Two of the three experts we highlighted here are taking the Cubs to close out the series at home, while Doc's Sports is the lone expert picking the Brewers.
