Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Milwaukee Brewers MLB Prediction:
The Brewers just played this Pirates team last week and they did what they had to do against a team like that. I look for them to do the same thing in this series.
The Brewers are the better team by a lot and they should be able to take care of business in this one. I feel very good with my Brewers play on Monday.
I look for Adrian Houser to induce weak contact and for the Brewers to hit around whoever the starter is for the Pirates.
I will play the Brewers on the run line.
