We have some MLB trends for some evening games this Saturday April 6.



Cubs vs. Brewers

Trend Edge: Brewers

The Brewers are 4-1 in the last five games between these two teams and they have won six of the last eight.

The Cubs come into this game with a single win while Milwaukee is 7-1 and looking for their sixth consecutive win.

The line is tantilizing for Milwaukee having gone up from -115 to -130 most books.

Most of the action was on the Cubs at 65% with that bookmakers seemingly trying to entice even more betting on Chicago as they move the line from +105 to +120.

PITCHING MATCHUP: Cubs LH Cole Hamels (0-0, 9.00 ERA) vs. Brewers RH Corbin Burnes (0-0, 7.20)

Hamels gave up five runs over five innings in his season debut at Texas on Sunday. The 35-year-old was cruising through three innings before he walked the bases loaded and surrendered a grand slam in the fourth. Hamels is 7-3 with a 3.60 ERA in 15 starts against the Brewers, including a 4-1 mark and a 3.67 ERA in eight outings at Miller Park.

Burnes is trying to transition to a starting role after posting a 7-0 record and a 2.61 ERA in 30 appearances out of the bullpen last season. The 24-year-old had mixed results in his first big-league start Sunday against St. Louis, as he racked up 12 strikeouts but gave up four runs -- including three homers -- over five innings in a no-decision. Burnes made three relief appearances against the Cubs last season, allowing two runs in 4 1/3 innings.

Cubs are 0-5 in their last 5 games vs. a right-handed starter.

Cubs are 0-4 in Hamels' last 4 starts.

Brewers are 7-1 in their last 8 home games vs. a left-handed starter.

We will be on the Brewers here -128
