Milwaukee Brewers Fantasy Spin
Christian Yelich went 2-for-4 with a stolen base in a 5-2 loss to the Angels on Monday. Yelich could have had an even bigger game, but Mike Trout robbed the outfielder of a homer with a spectacular catch in the third inning. The steal is the second of the season for the 2018 MVP winner. It's still very early, but Yelich is hitting .375 with a 1.340 OPS to go along with five homers and 13 RBI over 11 games. You can do worse.
Los Angeles Angels Fantasy Spin
Mike Trout went 0-for-2 with two walks and a run scored in a victory over the Brewers on Monday. Trout also made one of the best catches you'll see this year, robbing Christian Yelich of a homer early in the contest. He's pretty good. Trout now has his on-base percentage up to .574 to go along with a .933 slugging percentage. He's well on his way to another MVP-caliber season.
MLB Betting Trends
The Brewers are just 2-6 in their last eight meetings with the Angels.
The Angels have won five of their last seven home games and are 4-0 in their last four games at home.
I like the Brewers to rebound tonight. Freddy Peralta posted a 30% strikeout rate in his rookie season and is coming off a strong start this year. He’ll face Trout and a DH tonight in Anaheim but he’ll also benefit pitching in a ballpark that suppresses home runs. Meanwhile, Matt Harvey owns a walk rate that is nearly as high as his strikeout rate and the Brewers should smack him around tonight (especially lefties Christian Yelich, Travis Shaw, Mike Moustakas and Eric Thames).
The Pick: Milwaukee Brewers -135
