This will be an encounter between the top teams in the National League Central. The Brewers are at the top spot and they have been solid this season. On the other side, Chicago is aiming to go above the Brewers and their confidence is on a high level. They have won 8 of their last 10 games and I expect another solid performance by the Cubs. Go for a Chicago win in this game.
