Atlanta Braves vs. Milwaukee Brewers MLB Prediction:
This definitely has the chance to be a very good game. With no rooting interest here, I am very excited for these teams to square off.
Atlanta had a very good season, but I do give the advantage to the Brewers. I like the fact that they are playing at home and I feel they have more pitching depth.
Charlie Morton vs. Corbin Burnes is an excellent pitching matchup. I do not feel either pitcher will get crushed. I just feel that Burnes will pitch a little better than his opponent and get his team a win.
I like the Brewers in game 1.
