Cubs vs. Brewers odds, line, picks: Proven model reveals MLB picks for August 19, 2022 matchup
The surging Chicago Cubs will look to keep their hot play alive as they host the divisional-rival Milwaukee Brewers on Friday afternoon. Chicago has won three in a row, while Milwaukee has split its last 10 games. First pitch is set for 2:20 p.m. ET. Milwaukee is listed as a -140 favorite (risk $140 to win $100) on the money line in the latest Cubs vs. Brewers odds from Caesars Sportsbook, while the over/under for total runs scored is 10 (see up-to-date odds for every game this week on our MLB odds page).
Before making any Cubs vs. Brewers picks, you NEED to check out the MLB predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.
The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every MLB game 10,000 times, and it is a 300-260 on top-rated MLB money-line picks since the start of the 2021 season. This is the same model that pegged the 2021 Atlanta Braves at 10-1 as one of three best bets to win it all last season. Anybody who has followed it has seen profitable returns.
The model knows Milwaukee will trot Aaron Ashby out to the mound and he's coming off a strong performance against the Cardinals, despite not getting a decision. He allowed just two earned runs over six innings on Sunday while striking out five. Ashby was also dazzling in his last start versus the Cubs in late May. He struck out a career-high 12 batters while allowing one run across six innings.
The model also knows Keegan Thompson will tote the rubber for the Cubs and he's been one of the lone bright spots for Chicago this season. He sports a 9-5 record with a 3.67 ERA after beginning the year out of the bullpen. A relief role constitutes Thompson's only previous appearance versus Milwaukee this year as he threw 2.2 scoreless innings against the Brewers in early April.
Now, the model has set its sights on Brewers vs. Cubs. We can tell you the model is leaning Under the total, and it also says one side of the money line has ALL the value. You ABSOLUTELY need to see it before locking in any MLB picks.
So who wins Cubs vs. Brewers? And which side of the money line has ALL the value? Join SportsLine here to find out, all from the model that has crushed its top-rated MLB money-line picks!
