Milwaukee Brewers DFS SPIN
The slumping Willy Adames went 4-for-4 with a homer, two RBI and a walk against the Rangers on Saturday. Adames also had three hits on Friday. Prior to that, he was 12-for-77 with one homer in his last 21 games. He’s upped his average from .201 to .213 the last two days.
Texas Rangers DFS SPIN
Rangers manager Bruce Bochy told reporters that Nathan Eovaldi (forearm) will throw to live hitters this week. Eovaldi has been on the shelf with a forearm strain since late July. The 33-year-old has thrown three successful bullpen sessions and will move a step closer to a rehab assignment. The right-hander posted a 2.69 ERA and 1.01 WHIP across 123 2/3 innings before the injury and will likely return to the Rangers rotation for the final month of the regular season.

Brewers vs. Rangers MLB BETTING PREDICTION
Houser is 1-2 with a 5.81 ERA and 3.34 FIP over his last five starts (26 1/3). The 3.34 FIP is an indicator that he’s pitched better than his 5.81 ERA would suggest. Meanwhile, Scherzer is 3-0 with a 1.80 ERA and 2.07 FIP across the three starts (20 innings) that he’s made for the Rangers since he was acquired from the Mets at the deadline. With Scherzer likely to shut down the Brewers and Houser pitching better than advertised, I like the under today in Arlington.
