MLB Betting Trends

Pittsburgh

The Pirates are 21-45 in their last 66 games overall. Pittsburgh is 2-8 in its last 10 Sunday games.

Milwaukee

The Brewers are 8-1 in their last nine home games. Milwaukee is 21-8 in its last 29 games overall.

Prediction:

Woodruff looked solid in his return from injury and he'll be stretched out a little more today. This is a game where super reliever Josh Hader could be involved for multiple innings if the game is close late. With Milwaukee on cruise control right now and very familiar with Williams, I am banking on the hosts continuing their torrid stretch with a win here.
