The New York Yankees will play the Milwaukee Brewers in Game 1 of their series at American Family Field on Friday night.

The New York Yankees are 87-56 this season and have won four games in a row. New York is coming off of a series win against Boston, where they won both games played. The New York pitching staff has a 3.28 ERA, a 1.11 WHIP, and a .220 opponent batting average this season. The Yankees offense has scored 709 runs with a .239 batting average and a .322 on base percentage. Aaron Judge is batting .310 with 57 home runs and 123 RBI’s for the Yankees this season. The projected starter for New York is Frankie Montas, who is 5-12 with a 3.89 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP over 141 innings pitched this season.

The Milwaukee Brewers are 76-67 this season and have won three of their last four games. Milwaukee is coming off of a series split against St. Louis, where they won one game and lost one game in the series. The Milwaukee pitching staff has a 3.91 ERA, a 1.23 WHIP, and a .232 opponent batting average. The Brewers offense has scored 645 runs with a .235 batting average and a .316 on base percentage this year. Rowdy Tellez is batting .228 with 30 home runs and 80 RBI’s for the Brewers this season. The projected starter for Milwaukee is Adrian Houser, who is 6-9 with a 4.61 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP over 91.2 innings pitched this season.

New York is 4-0 in their last 4 games and 37-18 in their last 55 game one’s of a series. The under is 5-1 in New York’s last 6 Friday games. Milwaukee is 6-0 in their last 6 interleague home games and 0-5 in their last 5 Friday games. The under is 5-2 in Milwaukee’s last 7 home games. The over is 4-0 in these two teams last 4 head to head meetings in Milwaukee.

The Brewers come into this series a couple of games out of a wild card spot and need to win every series going forward. Milwaukee will turn to Adrian Houser, who has allowed two earned runs in his last 13 innings pitched. For the Yankees, Frankie Montas has allowed eight runs over his last 16.2 innings pitched. Montas hasn’t been great for New York this season, but Houser has been pretty bad for the Brewers. I am taking the Yankees here.
