Milwaukee is 4-1 in their last 5 games and 5-1 in their last 6 road games. The over is 7-0-1 in Milwaukee’s last 8 games. Pittsburgh is 5-1 in their last 6 home games and 0-8 in their last 8 Friday games. The under is 3-1-2 in Pittsburgh’s last 6 Friday games. Milwaukee is 39-14 in these two teams last 53 head to head meetings.

Pittsburgh was able to hang on for the win on Thursday night after almost blowing the lead in the ninth inning. In this matchup, Milwaukee is sending out Corbin Burnes, who has allowed three runs in his last 14.2 innings. For Pittsburgh, Roansy Contreras has allowed two runs in his last 10 innings. Contreras has been solid for Pittsburgh, but does not pitch very deep into games. This should be an interesting pitching matchup, but I like the Brewers to bounce back here. I am taking Milwaukee to win by two runs or more.
