Milwaukee Brewers vs Chicago Cubs May 30 2022 Same Game Parlay

After ending their series against the St. Louis Cardinals with a win, the Brewers head to face the Cubs. Milwaukee has a record of 30-18 at the moment; however, they had a tough time with the Cardinals.

The Cubs may not be a great team, but they have a few good hitters that could give the Brewers trouble. Today, we’re going to see what the Brewers can bring to this game.

The Chicago Cubs brought their series with the Chicago Red Sox to a close yesterday. The Cubs were able to split the series but lost the most recent game.

Through their last five games, the Cubs have lost three of them. With a 19-27 record this season, the Cubs need to kick it into gear if they want to be competitive. Now, let’s build out a single-game parlay for tonight’s match.

Milwaukee Brewers vs. Chicago Cubs Game Preview

The Brewers find themselves in what could be a massive upset if they lose. At the moment, the Brewers are -120 tonight, not a very large Moneyline spread.

After their 8-0 win over the St. Louis Cardinals, the Brewers has momentum on their side. However, there is one major area that concerns us. The 0-3 Aaron Ashby will make the start for the Brewers in tonight’s game.

The Cubs aren’t sending out their best pitcher either; the 2-5 Drew Smyly will get the start. Smyly has a much worse ERA than Ashby as well, at 4.08. These teams are nearly identical when it comes to batting.

The Brewers have a team batting average of .237, and the Cubs have a .233. So, the question is, which of these pitchers has a better chance of winning this game?

Moneyline: Chicago Cubs +102

This was a tough one to call, especially with the Brewers’ recent win over the Cardinals. The reason why we’re going to go with the Cubs is how much the Brewers have been on the road.

This will be Milwaukee’s eighth straight game on the road, and traveling can take a lot of a team. The Cubs, on the other hand, is returning home for the first time in six games.

The Total: Under 11 Runs

We don’t expect this one to be a high-scoring game, even though each team has good batters. The reason why we don’t expect many runs is because of the pitchers.

Sure, Ashby is 0-3 this season, but he has an ERA of 2.91 over the course of 34 innings. Smyly doesn’t have a great record either, but he can limit the effectiveness of the Brewers batters.

To Record a Run: Christian Yelich -145

Of the Brewers that we believe will get a run today, the most likely is Christian Yelich. Yelich gets on base a lot and has scored 29 runs this season.

He’s also hit five home runs and should do well against the LHP Drew Smyly. He’s had a tough go at the plate over the last five games. However, we think he’ll pull himself out of his slump tonight. 

To Hit a Home Run: Patrick Wisdom +360

Wisdom is the leading home run hitter for the Chicago Cubs after hitting ten so far this season. Going against Ashby should be a good chance for him to hit one out of the park tonight.

The odds here also will give you a solid boost to your single-game parlay. Wisdom has a low batting average at home but has hit six of his ten home runs at home as well.
