MLB Odds: Chicago Faces Milwaukee in Inter-Division Showdown. For the second time in a week, the Milwaukee Brewers will take on the Chicago Cubs in a battle for top spot in the National League Central. At press time, the Cubs own a two-game lead over the Brewers, but that lead has been slipping over the past two weeks. This three-game set may determine who walks away as the NL Central champs.

Winners of 8 of their last 10 and coming off of a sweep over the San Francisco Giants, the Brewers are one of the hottest teams in the Bigs right now. CF Christian Yelich has been a big part of that success. The 26-year-old is on pace to set career highs in hits, homeruns and RBI, and is the backbone of the Brewers’ outfield. He’ll be called on to continue his great season this Tuesday when his club takes on the rival Cubs.
Chicago is coming off of two straight losses to the Washington Nationals and two consecutive series losses. Lefty Jose Quintana is expected to get the ball on Tuesday for the Cubs, where he’ll look to win back-to-back games against Milwaukee. With only 20 games remaining in the regular season, every game is critical for the playoff run. Tune in for first pitch at 8:05 PM ET.
