I look for the Brewers to keep rolling in this game. I do not have much confidence the Red Birds can pull this one off.
Milwaukee is the better team and I look for them to take care of business in this one.
The Brewers have the starting pitching advantage with Woodruff on the hill and I think he will toss a good game and Milwaukee will hit around Lester enough to get a win.
Give me the Brewers on the moneyline.
