πŸ”₯ Brewers 78-62 (+121) vs Yankees 70-71 (-144) 8.5 O/U

The Brewers are taking on the Yankees at Yankee Stadium, one of the top 3 ballparks in baseball for HR's allowing 1.52 per game. Brewers' pitcher Wade Miley (3.54 ERA, 382 Batters Faced) will be up against Yankees' Michael King (2.88 ERA, 323 Batters Faced).

Favorite Matchup Of The Day

Out of the matchups above, my favorite pick of the day is the Brewers at +121. With Miley's solid ERA and the Yankees' struggle to maintain a consistent performance, the Brewers have a good chance of coming out on top. πŸ€
