Quintana and the Cubs have had Brewers’ number

Cubs vs Brewers Betting Odds June 11

The Chicago Cubs sit a half-game out of first place in the NL Central Division and kick off a three-game series vs the division-leading Milwaukee Brewers tonight. The Cubbies are sending Jose Quintana to the mound to try to stifle the Brewers and he’s been dominant in his career vs the Brew Crew, posting a 0.63 ERA and 0.69 WHIP in six career starts. Chicago opened as a -122 favorite to take the first game of the series and the division lead.

SHARK BITES
  • The Cubs are 4-1 SU in their last five games on the road with Jose Quintana as the starter.
  • The Brewers are 7-3 SU and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games when opening a series.
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Cubs’ last four games (avg combined score 5.25 runs).

Jose Quintana owns two shutouts against the Brewers this season, both 3-0 wins in April. The lefty has also been solid in six road starts this season, owning a 2.62 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP which means he could be the X factor in getting the victory tonight. Chicago has owned Milwaukee lately, winning seven of the eight games when they’ve faced each other this season and posting victories in 10 of the last 12. When you factor in that the Cubs are 8-4 SU and 9-3 ATS in Quintana’s 12 starts this year, bettors should be all over the Cubbies tonight.

As for the Brewers, if they want any chance to get the W, they need to provide some run support for starter Junior Guerra. The righty sports a 2.83 ERA and 1.14 WHIP in 11 starts this season but Milwaukee is only averaging 2.91 runs per game when he takes the mound. However, the Brewers have been mashing the ball lately as they put up 27 runs in their last three games and hope their play at home (5-1 SU in last six games) carries over to this pivotal battle for the NL Central.

With the total opening at 8.5, the UNDER makes an enticing option for totals bettors. The UNDER has hit in the last six games in this matchup with an average combined score of 3.5 runs per game. When you consider each hurler’s ERA this season, tonight’s matchup is shaping up to be a pitchers’ duel.
