Story hits walk-off homer

MLB Betting Trends
The Brewers are 4-0 in their last four Sunday games. Milwaukee is 21-6 in its last 27 games overall.
The Rockies are 1-4 in their last five Sunday games. Colorado is 1-4 in the last five Hoffman home starts.
While the Brewers will play this game with the importance of an NL Central division race on the line, they are already in an NL Wild Card Game regardless and know that the Cardinals are huge favorites today against the Cubs. Colorado seems to be enjoying playing a spoiler of sorts and are at home, so I think the Rockies give another outstanding effort today and win as the underdogs.
