Milwaukee Brewers Fantasy Spin
Jesus Aguilar went 2-for-4 and drove in the Brewers' lone run in Sunday night's loss to the Cubs. Aguilar plated Christian Yelich with a run-scoring single off of Jon Lester in the fourth inning after Yelich had reached on a three-base error on a ball Kyle Schwarber lost in the rain. The two-hit night for Aguilar raised his season slash to .198/.304/.321 to go with three homers and 17 RBI.
Philadelphia Phillies Fantasy Spin
J.T. Realmuto went 1-for-5 with a two-run double to lead the Phillies to a 6-1 win over the Royals on Sunday. Realmuto drilled a two-run double off Royals' reliever Richard Lovelady to give the Phillies a 4-1 lead in the fifth inning. It was his lone hit in five at-bats. The 28-year-old backstop has been a disappointment relative to the inflated expectations his arrival in Philadelphia spawned this offseason, but he's off to a solid start, hitting .269/.331/.418 with 24 runs scored, four homers and 24 RBI across 151 plate appearances.
MLB Betting Trends
The Brewers are 12-5 in their last 17 games played in Philadelphia.
The Phillies have won four of Aaron Nola’s last five starts versus the Brewers.
The Brewers are just 3-7 in their last 10 road games, which includes a loss last night at Wrigley Field. They’re also 2-7 in their last nine road games versus a right-handed starter. Meanwhile, the Phillies have won four of their last five overall and are 6-1 in their last seven home games when facing a right-handed starter. This isn’t a bad price on the Phillies tonight.
