If familiarity breeds contempt, there should be animosity aplenty on Saturday when the Milwaukee Brewers and the Chicago Cubs meet at Wrigley Field.

The Brewers will trot Chase Anderson out to the mound in this one. Right hander Anderson has a 2-0 record and a 3.43 ERA this season.

Anderson’s opponent in this one will be Jake Arrieta. The Cubs right hander has a 5.44 ERA to go along with a 4-3 record this season.

Anderson has received five straight no-decisions since beating the Cubs on April 17 in Chicago. The 29-year-old recorded quality starts in three of his first four outings but has failed to do so in his last four and hasn’t made it out of the sixth inning in his last three times out. Anderson is 2-0 with a 2.66 ERA in four starts against the Cubs.

Arrieta has lost two straight starts and three of his last four. The 31-year-old surrendered a pair of home runs while allowing four runs and seven hits over six frames in a loss at St. Louis on Sunday and has posted just one quality start in his last six outings. Arrieta is 7-4 with a 3.00 ERA in 13 starts against the Brewers, including a seven-inning gem April 9 in which he fanned a season-high 10 in a win.

Oddsmakers currently have the Cubs listed as 210-moneyline favorites versus the Brewers, while the game’s total is sitting at 8.

The Milwaukee Brewers want to prove their position atop the National League Central is not a fluke, and a series win on the road against the defending World Series champions would help make their case. The Brewers aim for a second straight win over the Cubs when the division rivals continue their three-game set Saturday at Wrigley Field.

The Brewers waited out a two-hour rain delay before outlasting the Cubs 6-3 in the opener – their 10th win in 12 games. Milwaukee’s bullpen turned in a stellar performance Friday, with four relievers combining to allow just one hit over five scoreless innings. Meanwhile, it was a sloppy afternoon for the Cubs, not only in terms of the weather but also in the sense that they committed three errors and issued 10 walks. The loss snapped a three-game winning streak for Chicago, which is trying to avoid its third series loss at home after dropping only six series at Wrigley Field all of last season.

The Cubs were a 6-3 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Brewers. That made winners of bettors who got Milwaukee at 159 on the moneyline, while the total score (9) was good news for OVER bettors.

Last time out for Milwaukee, they were a 6-3 winner as they battled the Cubs on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Brewers at 159 were rewarded, while the 9 combined runs moved the game OVER for totals bettors.
