Milwaukee Brewers Fantasy Spin
Christian Yelich went 0-for-5 with a strikeout in the Brewers' win over the Dodgers on Saturday. Yelich was held off the basepaths for the first time in 15 games. He's cooled off after a blistering start, homering in four consecutive games to open up the regular season. Despite the dismal results in this one, he's still hitting .345/.443/.672 with 14 runs scored, five homers, 15 RBI and three steals in 70 plate appearances. The 27-year-old reigning National League MVP is going to be just fine.
Los Angeles Dodgers Fantasy Spin
Cody Bellinger went 2-for-4 with his National League-leading ninth home run of the season in the Dodgers’ loss to the Brewers on Saturday. Bellinger clobbered a majestic 409-foot solo homer to deep right field off Brewers starter Zach Davies in the fourth inning. He also recorded a single to post his ninth multi-hit effort in 16 games this season. The 23-year-old slugger has been the best hitter in baseball so far, slashing a surreal .422/.479/.922 with 20 runs scored, nine homers and 22 RBI in 71 plate appearances. He's also chipped in a pair of stolen bases. Fantasy owners can't really ask for more than this.
MLB Betting Trends
The Brewers are 7-2 in Jhoulys Chacin’s last nine starts and are 5-1 in his last six outings on the road.
The Dodgers have lost five of Stripling’s last six starts.
It can be difficult for a team to sweep an opponent on the road, especially when said team is an underdog in all three games. That said, why not go back to the well with the Brewers on Sunday? After starting the season on fire, the Dodgers have now dropped six in a row and six of their last 10. With L.A.’s offense struggling, I’ll take my chances with a solid Milwaukee team that is 10-5 overall and 5-3 on the road to start the year.
The Pick: Milwaukee Brewers +125
