Milwaukee is 5-2 in their last 7 Sunday games and 2-9 in their last 11 road games. The over is 4-1 in Milwaukee’s last 5 game three’s of a series. Tampa Bay is 6-1 in their last 7 Sunday games and 40-12 in their last 52 home games. The over is 5-1 in Tampa Bay’s last 6 Sunday games. The under is 10-3 in these two teams last 13 head to head meetings in Tampa Bay.


Tampa Bay will be looking for the series sweep in this matchup, while Milwaukee will try to snap their losing streak. The Rays will be going with Jalen Beeks as the opener in this game and will turn to the bullpen after a couple of innings. Milwaukee is starting Freddy Peralta, who has allowed two earned runs or fewer in three of his last four starts. Peralta did struggle in his last start against the Cardinals, allowing six earned runs. I like the Rays to get another win here.
