MLB Betting Preview
Chicago Cubs at Milwaukee Brewers
Wednesday, 8:05 pm Eastern – ESPN
SBG Global Opening Line: Brewers - 110 , Total 8.5 Under -115
The Chicago Cubs and Milwaukee Brewers play the third game of their four game series on Wednesday night and they get the national spotlight as the game is on ESPN. It will be Ryan Dempster going for the Cubs while Manny Para gets the call for the Brewers. SBG Global reports that early MLB betting has the public taking Cubs on the Road.
Dempster is 11-4 on the season with a 2.99 ERA. He did not get a decision in his last start against Florida but pitched well, giving up one run in six innings. Dempster got two wins against Milwaukee in April but both games were at Wrigley.
Parra is 9-3 on the season with a 3.72 ERA. He had won eight straight games before a loss in his last start against Houston. He was taken out in the seventh inning even though he didn’t allow a ball out of the infield. “I feel like I’m throwing the ball really well, six innings, seven innings and then a break here or there is the difference between what CC and Ben are doing. They’re coming out of games on a good note versus being taken out of the inning, which I can’t stand,” Parra said.
