Cubs vs. Brewers odds: Expert on 14-2 run releases June 13 MLB picks, predictions

The Brewers and Cubs conclude a crucial three-game series with a Wednesday matinee, with the first pitch set for 2:10 p.m. ET at Miller Park in Milwaukee. The Cubs are -118 on the money line, meaning it would take a $118 bet on Chicago to win to return $100, while a $100 bet on the Brewers (+108) nets $108. The over-under for total runs scored is set at nine.

This is the 11th meeting of the season between these I-94 rivals, so with so much familiarity, you'll want to see what Michael Rusk has to say before you pick a side.

With his economics and statistics background, Rusk uses multiple algorithms with recency bias to produce profitable picks. Last year, Rusk's bets brought in more than $3,000 for $100 bettors.

And he certainly knows these two squads, having nailed nine of his past 10 picks involving the North Siders and five of six on the Brew Crew.

Now he has studied Wednesday's NL Central showdown and has a money-line pick based on a fascinating angle you -- and Vegas -- aren't considering.

Rusk knows these two teams are neck-and-neck atop the NL Central, but in 2018 this rivalry has been a one-sided affair. The Cubs have won eight of the 10 meetings after Tuesday night's 4-0 loss to the Brewers.

These teams are currently heading in opposite directions. The Cubs (38-25) have won eight of 10 -- they're 8-0 when scoring more than one run. The Brewers (39-27) have dropped five of seven, scoring one to three runs in the defeats and 12 runs in each of the victories.

Mike Montgomery (2-1, 3.56 ERA) starts for Chicago on Wednesday, while Milwaukee counters with Jhoulys Chacin (5-1, 3.58). The Cubs are a perfect 3-0 when reliever-turned-starter Montgomery gets the nod, but the Brewers are 11-3 with Chacin.

Rusk's pick is locked in at SportsLine, and it will surprise you.
