This is a matchup between 2 teams in the National League Central who have been playing well. I look for the Brewers to come out on top in this one.
Milwaukee is the better team here and I look for them to do enough in order to get a win. I do not see a blowout happening.
This pitching matchup features two of the premier pitchers in the National League. I look for Peralta to pitch slightly better than Flaherty to get a win.
I like the Brewers on the moneyline.
