MLB Betting Trends
The Twins are just 1-6 in their last seven Wednesday games and they have lost six straight against NL Central opponents.
The Brewers have won eight of their last 11 Wednesday games and 10 of their last 12 home games against a losing team.
Berrios has been one of Minnesota’s top players, but they are in a real funk right now and even he had an awful outing in his last start. If Berrios is to pitch well, he still needs his hitters and bullpen to come through, which I don’t feel great about. Anderson can match what Berrios will do against this struggling Minnesota lineup. I will stick with the Brewers at home.
The Pick: Milwaukee Brewers -105
