Brewers rolling along
With a 5-4 victory on Saturday, the Brewers have won the first two games in this series and eight of their last 11 overall. Milwaukee is now 28-18 overall and 18-9 on the road. The Brewers average just 4.09 runs per game at the plate, but allow just 3.73 per game this season.
Junior Guerra gets the start for the Brewers on Sunday afternoon. He has started seven games this year and has a 3-3 record with a 3.08 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP. Guerra has pitched 38 innings this year and has 18 walks with 37 strikeouts.
Twins in a funk
The Twins have now dropped three straight and five of their last six games following the loss to Milwaukee on Saturday. The Twins are now 18-23 overall and 8-11 at home this season. Minnesota is putting up 4.25 runs per game this season while allowing 4.80 per contest.
Jake Odorizzi takes the mound for the Twins on Sunday. He has made nine starts this season and has a 3-2 record with a 3.35 ERA and 1.26 WHIP. Odorizzi has pitched a total of 48.1 innings and has recorded 45 strikeouts with 21 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Brewers have won 10 of their last 12 road games and they have won five of their last six interleague games. They also have won 10 of their last 14 interleague road games.
The Twins are just 2-7 in their last nine home games and 1-5 in their last six games against a winning team.
Minnesota has a good starter on the mound, but the Brewers just seem really locked in right now. Guerra has been competitive on the mound and should be able to have a strong showing against these Twins. I like the Brewers to keep their winning ways rolling on the road as they finish a sweep of Minnesota.
The Pick: Milwaukee Brewers +100
